A TOAST to District 6000 – We hoped you would participate in this innovative form of a district conference, and so many of you did!  This pilot offered a conference experience at a lower cost, less travel, and a shorter time away from family and jobs along with a bigger picture of Rotary!
DG Mike’s Rotary Cups of Cold WaterI initially developed this abbreviated “nuts & bolts newsletter” for Rotary club presidents, secretaries, and Assistant Governors to keep them in the loop with key information.  It was suggested the Cups be made available for all members of District 6000 to read.  If you are interested in reading DG Mike’s Rotary Cups of Cold Water click here. 
It is rewarding to see how Rotary clubs are taking this year’s theme of Rotary: Making a Difference very seriously.  You are helping to make the world a better place by your active involvement in Rotary and impacting the lives of more people than you will ever realize.  Thank you for your Service Above Self commitment to Rotary.  You are indeed making a positive difference.

The Rotary District 6000 Vision 2020 Membership Attraction and Engagement Event will be held on Wednesday, May 2 at the Shive-Hattery Office in West Des Moines. Shive-Hattery is located at 4125 Westown Parkway, Suite 100.
This is what Jacquelyn Duke of the Rotary Club of Ankeny had to say about the event last year.
“As a brand new Rotarian last year, this was a very fun way to network and begin to get to know some of the Rotarians outside of my own local club.  The food was great, but the best part was the open forum format.  After the panel of speakers presented which were awesome, we broke up into small discussion groups and were able to openly ask questions and share ideas with one another on what has been working to attract new members, as well as what hasn't.  I highly recommend attending!"
