Merger of 5490 & 5510 is Official!

On Monday, April 18 2016, the Rotary International Board approved the merger of Districts 5490 and 5510.  Effective July 1, 2017, the new district, 5495, will be in business.

Our RI Director, Brad Howard, states: “now comes the challenging part-working with your teams to be communicative, all-inclusive and forward planning—not just for the new district, but for Rotary in Arizona.  You folks have put together an exemplary plan.  Do everything possible to focus on making it happen!  Also, let me remind you that there is a team of people who are ready, willing, and able to help you navigate to success.  We are all behind you.”

Thank you Director Brad for those words of encouragement!  Now it is up to all of us to make it a reality!

Sun Lakes is going to Sweden

az-sweden friendship ex

Sun Lakes Rotary is going to Sweden on a Friendship Exchange from August 23rd thru Sept. 4th, 2016. We have space for two additional couples to join us. The Swedish came here last Spring and were hosted by the Sun Lakes Club,so if you join us you will not have to home host them even though they will be hosting us for the ten days we are there.

Sun Lakes Rotary Members and some members of 5510 have been on 24 of these exchanges and this will be our 25th.  It is a GREAT way to see a new country while staying with Rotarians from that country. The Swedish all speak pretty good English which makes for a comfortable visit.

Please contact Frank Wiley at frankbwiley@yahoo.com for more information.
