Rotary District 5050 welcomes its newest and 58th club

Rotary District 5050 welcomes its newest and 58th club - the Pacific Northwest Passport Rotary Club.


We will be celebrating our Charter Night party on Saturday, March 3 - with the installation by Rotary International Vice President. Dean Rohrs.


I ask you and your club members to join us and celebrate by registering here:


Why are we called a Passport Club?  We encourage our members to become involved with local Rotary clubs - to assist in your club's projects and fundraisers and to treat their membership as a passport to other clubs.


Who are our members?  We want to re-engage former Rotary members, as well as Rotaract and other youth/alumni members of our Rotary family who have been unable to commit to a regular club due to cost or time barriers.


We want to build and re-engage the Rotary family with lower costs and less frequent meeting requirements.  For more information about the Passport Club concept, click here:


and visit our website at


If you would like us to make a presentation to your club, please email me at


Thank you, and I hope to see you at our Charter Night on March 3!

Rotary Peacebuilding Conference - Vancouver - Feb 9-11, 2018

Dear Rotarian,

As you may know RI President Ian Riseley is holding six peacebuilding conferences around the world. The first of these international conferences is close to and easy for your members to attend. On February 9-11, 2018 in Vancouver, BC the presidential peacebuilding conference will examine sustainable global and local environmental practices, and their contributions to peacebuilding and peacemaking.

Participants will discuss the impact of environmental issues on health, fresh air, clean water, vegetation, and food production – and how improved environmental conditions are a fundamental condition of building peace within communities. The conference will bring together community leaders, youth, and representatives from the public, private, and government sectors. Attendees also can participate in a hands-on service project the morning after the conference.

There will be a focus on how Rotary clubs can involve their local community in sustainable projects and peacebuilding.

The conference website has a list of keynote speakers, link to book a hotel room, draft program and a link to the registration.  Please visit:

The registration is currently $250 Canadian.

Rotarians from the US, Canada and around the world will come together at the Hyatt Regency in Vancouver for this conference. Will your club be represented? 

Thank you for all you do for Rotary and your community,

Chris Offer, PDG
for Rotary Peacebuilding Conference Vancouver
