Week 43 – April 24
ALL STAR ROTARIAN SCORECARDS ARE DUE APRIL 30
The All Star Rotarian scorecard is due Sunday, April 30. Believe it or not, even if you are a chronic procrastinator and starting with a clean scorecard, it is still technically possible to complete all required activities and qualify. Of course, doing all of this in one week will also prepare you for a future career as a District Governor. Download your scorecard HERE. You can submit your completed scorecard at the District Assembly this Saturday in St. Augustine.
HOUSE OF FRIENDSHIP AT THE ALL STAR CONFERENCE
The tradition of a District House of Friendship (HOF) will continue at the All Star Conference. Reservations are now being accepted to secure space within our HOF to present and/or display information about your past or ongoing projects. This will be a terrific opportunity to share with other Rotarians from across District 6970 (and beyond) the details of your favorite projects.
You can reserve a space within by contacting PDG Fel (felleeD6970@aol.com) or PDG Percy (percy.r@SaniGLAZE.com) with the following information: Rotary Club or organization name, point of contact name, phone number and email address, and project name.
Only 44 days until the All Star Conference in Atlanta! Don’t forget to buy your raffle ticket for the Executive Suite! www.allstarconference.org/suite

Jamia was born in a rural village in Zambia miles away from the nearest road. As she grew up, her community slowly grew and developed. A well was dug to provide clean water and cell phone towers spread across the landscape. One day, someone came to tell her family about the importance of building a pit latrine. Her father was reluctant at first, but eventually asked his brother to help him build a latrine. They dug a hole, covered it with a concrete slab, and built a shelter over it for privacy and safety. It wasn’t much to look at, but it was their own and they took great care to keep it clean and maintain it.
