Registration Fee Increase 12/15/2016
Important Registration Dates:
15 December 2016: Last day for early-registration discount ($340 Rotarians/$70 Rotaractors)

More important than the date when the next registration price increase will occur (December 15). More important than what fantastic events you need to make reservations for (Atlanta Braves Game? The Coca Cola Experience? Private Screening of Gone With the Wind in the City it was based upon?). Of MOST IMPORTANCE - right this moment - is to hurry to riconvention.org, and secure your accommodations! Over 20 hotels have now been winnowed down to just 10 – with fabulous pricing secured by our Rotary Hosts. Don’t walk, RUN! Your hotels are disappearing quickly and we want you to join your fellow District 5240 Rotarians for the biggest party of the year and the crown jewel of the Foundation Centennial Celebration when we go “On to Atlanta!” Contact : Ashlea Boyer, On To Atlanta Chair, 805.709.0711

STEPS 2017 is Coming!
Last year, under the leadership of IPDG Jim Bell, District 5240 was designated a Peacebuilder District.
Rotarian Tom Schneider, Rotary Club of San Miguel de Allende Midday, attended our district conference and brought a gift for each club in our district. We provided assistance to Tom and his club in translating the video "Peace Is" into Spanish.
You can follow our peace programs on the District 5240 Web Site at http://www.rotarydistrict5240.org/SitePage/peace-page. and in future issues of the District Foundation Newsletter.
Together, we can make peace happen.
Yours in Rotary Service,
District Governor, Rotary Year 2016-17
