DG Nick Frankle has offered us a Peace Page as part of the upgraded district website to reflect our new status as a Peacebuilder district 2016-17. These are indeed exciting times for us and our Peace journey! We have an ever growing number of people joining the Peace Committee and this district page will enable us to promote peace projects and education more broadly.
I will be looking to members of OWR to assist me in providing content for the D5240 Peace Page. Please email me via the email link under my OWR Public Image officer link on this homepage.

FRANK ORTIZ, PDG
Rotary Club of Santa Maria Breakfast
Our District has 'passed the hat' many times in support of providing relief during disasters around our globe. This time, the need is in our own back yard. I ask that you please consider 'passing the hat' at your next couple of Club Meetings, or making a contribution on your own in support of the needs that have came from the disaster effects of the 'Erskine Fire' still raging in eastern Kern County.
One of our District 5240 Clubs, the Rotary Club of Kern River Valley, has set up a relief fund for this purpose. You may want to send contributions directly to them, or another Rotary Club or Disaster Service group that are involved with relief efforts in the area.
This is the message received from our friends at Kern River Valley RC:

As part of my vacation in Placencia, Belize I found out by coincidence that the Placencia Rotary Club meets for lunch on Tuesdays at a restaurant down the street from my condo so I jumped on the opportunity to join them. The company was great and the lunch was yummy and the price was right, US $5!

One of the comments fom the website survey was that we were missing out on an opportunity by having the ClubRunner symbol appear on bookmarks instead of the Rotary symbol. This update describes how this comment was addressed.
Now our Club Banner will appear on Browser tabs automatically and members can add the banner on their respective devices too.
PEACE IS IN OUR DNA
