Lesley and I plan to visit with all 66 Rotary Clubs in our District either in person or via zoom in the first half of this Rotary Year.  We want to welcome to our district, our newest club, the Rotary Club of Denison!  We look forward to meeting all of the Rotarians in our great district and we will experience together how Rotary is FUN and...
ROTARY OPENS OPPORTUNITIES!
 
 
Proud to be a Rotarian

Our district's Disaster Response Team has allocated $5,000 toward recovery efforts from the storm in August. In addition, a grant was written and Rotary International has sent $25,000.  If your club is working on a project to restore your community after the storm, or if you are planning a project, apply for funds from District 6000 to help.  Click here to download the simple, short application and email Disaster Relief Chair Troy Thompson or call him at 515-298-1526 with questions.  Do more good in your community!
Significant award nominations selected by the District Governor are considered annually by Rotary International Directors and Trustees of the Rotary Foundation. District 6000 members are the recipients of several of RI and TRF’s highest honors. These awards are typically presented at the District Conference and as always, a total surprise to the recipients.
 
Loring Miller of the Rotary Club of Decatur County received Rotary International’s highest individual honor, the Service Above Self award. He was one of only 143 Rotarians in the world to receive the SAS.
Gerald Klonglan of the Rotary Club of Ames received The Rotary Foundation’s second highest honor, the Citation of Meritorious Service.
Ken Noble of the Rotary Club of West Liberty was one of 9 recipients in the world of TRF’s PolioPlus Pioneer award for early leadership in the polio eradication effort.
Ambassador Kenneth M. Quinn of Des Moines is one of 25 recipients in the world to be honored with the Rotary International Excellence in Service to Humanity award, a non-Rotarian recognition.
