News and Information review
for District 6330 Rotarians
Volume: 2017-2018  Issue: 11
May 2, 2018



Rotary supports activities and training to improve maternal health and reduce child mortality for children under five.

During the month of April we concentrate on another of Rotary's six areas of focus - Maternal and Child Health.
Through a focus on Maternal and Child Health, Rotary makes high-quality health care available to vulnerable mothers and children so they can live longer and grow stronger.

We expand access to quality care, so mothers and children everywhere can have the same opportunities for a healthy future. An estimated 5.9 million children under the age of five die each year because of malnutrition, inadequate health care, and poor sanitation — all of which can be prevented.

District Conference - May 4-5, 2018
Embracing Change ...

... is the theme of this year's District Conference taking place May 4 and 5 at Grand Bend's famous Oakwood Resort, on the shores of Lake Huron. 
Change is happening at an ever increasing pace and impacts all of our lives: This is a conference that you won't want to miss!

We are excited that Amanda Watkin, General Secretary of Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland will be joining us as RI President Ian Riseley's Representative. She is excited to be able to help us explore innovative club and meeting structures.
