Rotary District 5790 Stories 
 
After concluding her tour of all the Rotary Clubs in District 5790, Pat Peters, our District Governor, had this heartwarming message for all Rotary Clubs as we go into the holidays.
 
"What an incredible journey! It has been a fantastic five months since Jeff and I started our tour of District 5790 Rotary Clubs. Each club has its own unique culture and priorities, and we have learned so much about how each of you impacts your community and the world."
 
The 2023 District 5790 Foundation Gala was a tremendous success, with the auction and raffle generating over $12,500.00 alone! The total amount raised is still being tallied. The keynote speech by Barry Rassin was captivating, bringing to life the remarkable initiatives supported yearly by The Rotary Foundation across the world. Notably, he shared that the World Health Organization anticipates the global eradication of Polio by December 2026,a significant milestone. We extend our gratitude to all 5790 Rotarians for their contributions and enthusiastic participation in the foundation.

Rotary International Statement 

It is a tragic and sad time for the people of Ukraine and the world.
 
At Rotary, we are deeply concerned by the deteriorating situation in Ukraine and the escalating loss of life and humanitarian hardship there.  Continued military action against Ukraine will not only devastate the region, but also risk spreading tragic consequences across Europe and the world.
 
As one of the world’s largest humanitarian organizations, we have made peace the cornerstone of our global mission.  We join the international community in calling for an immediate cease fire, withdrawal of Russian forces, and a restoration of diplomatic efforts to resolve this conflict through dialogue. 
 
In the past decade, Rotary clubs in Ukraine, Russia and nearby countries have transcended national differences and have actively engaged in peace-building projects to promote goodwill and to marshal assistance for the victims of war and violence. Today, our thoughts are with our fellow Rotary members and others in Ukraine coping with these tragic events. Rotary International will do everything in its power to bring aid, support and peace to the region. 
At Rotary we celebrate and promote diversity.
