Welcome to the Rotary District 5180!

 

Rotary International is a leadership organization made up of local business, professional and civic leaders. We meet regularly, get to know each other, form friendships, & through that, we’re able to help the community  to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self. We are the world's first service club organization, with more than 1.2 million members in 34,000 clubs, and in more than 220 countries worldwide.

 
 
 
Come join us June 7 for another great Rotary Day at the River Cats!  See a great game with great seats, and help wipe out polio!

Dear Rotarian,

 

We express our profound sadness and extend our sympathies to all those affected by the devastation resulting from the 25 April deadly earthquake in Nepal. Rescue missions and emergency aid continue to arrive in Nepal for the 8 million people impacted by the massive 7.8 magnitude quake.

 

As we mourn the thousands of lost lives, Rotary joins many international agencies in providing immediate relief to survivors and mobilizing our expertise to support long-term recovery and rebuilding efforts.

 

How to help: 

  • District 3292Nepal, has established a disaster relief fund to provide needed equipment and supplies to affected communities. Contact District Governor Kumar Piya for information about contributing to the fund.
  • Rotary’s service partner ShelterBox is working closely with Nepali Rotarians to coordinate immediate relief efforts. On Monday, 27 April, and Wednesday, 29 April, Rotarians greeted ShelterBox response teams in Nepal who will mobilize temporary housing and relief efforts. An initial 1,000 housing tents and 1,000 shelter kits will be distributed throughout affected communities. Two more ShelterBox relief teams and additional kits are ready to be deployed once further assessments are complete. Learn more about supporting ShelterBox’s relief efforts.
  • As with all disasters, the Rotary family may apply for global grants to support long-term recovery efforts in Nepal. Once immediate health, safety, and relief efforts have been addressed, work with local Nepali Rotary members and their international partners to develop projects within Rotary’s six areas of focus.

Monitor the announcements section of My Rotary for more information as it becomes available and do not hesitate to contact relief@rotary.org with any questions.

 

Our thoughts are with our Nepali neighbors during this difficult time. Thank you for continuing to Light Up Rotary through your compassion and generosity.

 

Yours in Rotary,

 

Gary C.K. Huang
President, Rotary International 2014-15

District 5180 Softball Signups

Rotary district 5180 is now expanding and accepting individuals and entire teams to join us in our very own Rotary Softball League. That’s right, from one, two, or three Rotarians to an entire team of 15, we want you to join in on the fun! We play senior rules and we have modified those rules to suit our needs.

Games are on Mondays, beginning on June 1 with an 8 game season, and finish with a round robin tournament around August 3rd. Games are played at the Sacramento Softball Complex, 3450 Longview Drive, Sacramento, CA 95821. If you can field an entire team, that would be great. But, if you only have a few players we can assign them to an existing team. Our goal is to get out there and have fun!

Please contact the league commissioner, Rotarian John Swentowsky, at:
