Help advance the cause of world peace and understanding by learning more about the Peace Pipe Letters of 1931-32 and 2019. Back in the early 1930s, with nationalism and ideologies that violated human dignity on the rise, The Rotary Club of Keokuk, extended their collective hands to their Rotarian friends around the world in a series of 496 “Peace Pipe Letters.” Eighty-eight years later, RC Keokuk members are repeating this long forgotten and beautiful gesture with a current crop of peace pipe letters epitomizing international friendship and understanding. Learn how you, too, can be part of this worldwide Rotarian Peace Pipe Letter Initiative.  You can purchase the book "Die Peace Pipe Briefe" for $30 by contacting Rotarian Tony Conn at conn.tony.2013@gmail.com or visit www.peace-pipe-proposal.com.
The dedication of the Polio Statue that our district commissioned was on Saturday, July 27, 2019 at Blank Children's Hospital, 1200 Pleasant St., Des Moines. Take some time to go see one way District 6000 Rotarians are bringing awareness to the ongoing fight against Polio!
Greetings from Evanston! After Council on Legislation, we put together a document that describes some of the changes that clubs or districts will see with the start of the new Rotary Year. CLICK HERE to view this document. A few things to note:
  1. Even though there were many more items that passed, a lot of them had to do with the overall organization. This document highlights what’s happening at the club and district levels. For a full overview of the COL, Rotarians could either check in with your COL Reps or visit My Rotary (www.MyRotary.org).
     
  2. You’ll see that page 1 of the document discusses that the language in Standard Rotary Club Constitution (SRCC) will be modernized to make it more accessible. It also asks the reader head to My Rotary to download a copy. We’re still in the process of streamlining the SRCC and expect it’ll be posted soon.
     
  3. In line with number 2 above, the 2019 Manual of Procedure (MOP) is also being drafted. Traditionally, the English version of the MOP has released in the fall (usually October) with translated versions to follow in winter. We expect the same timing this year, and will let you know when the new edition has been released. We’re expecting that it will release as an electronic PDF rather than a printed version.
