Name Your Top Rotarians for District Award Nominations by April 30
By Charles J. Polk
District 5110 has a long history of outstanding leadership and volunteer commitment at the international, zone, district, and club levels. Each year, we have an opportunity to recognize individuals and clubs that distinguish themselves through their exemplary acts of Service Above Self. We do that at our annual District Celebration, which will take place this year in Bend on August 27-28, 2021. . In order to ensure that every deserving Rotarian’s contributions are considered, DG Cindi O’Neil would like your help in identifying potential nominees for several awards. Nominations must be presented to Awards Committee Chair District Treasurer (DT) Jim Polk or District Secretary (DS) Beth Sheehan by April 30.
Thank you for helping DG Cindi recognize our valuable 5110 volunteers.

Rotary 4-way Test Speech Contest Registration Underway
By Freddy Saxton
Rotary District 5110 is excited to present this year’s 4-Way Test speech contest in order to provide the same wonderful opportunities to the students within our district. Registration forms are now being accepted, and clubs are scheduling contests at their local level which will be held in March and April. The local level contests will be held virtually, or in a safe distanced environment in compliance with the local protocol in the individual club’s location.
We are cautiously optimistic that we can hold the finals in person during our District Conference Celebration May 28, but that will obviously be dependent on how things develop. Please help spread the word to the schools in your community and let’s make this a great year for our District 4-Way Test speech contest! For more on the effort, click here.
