We invite you to the 2019 District Conference...

We have had an inspiring year – now it’s time to celebrate, as well as exchange ideas and plan for the future.  In keeping with President Barry Rassin theme ”Be the Inspiration”, we have some truly inspiring stories to share with you.  We also have some inspiring challenges that face our entire district, that we will address and ask “What can a Rotary Club do about this?”  Two of those biggest challenges are the opioid epidemic in our region, and human trafficking. 
 
Besides the thought provoking sessions, we will have a membership summit meeting, our annual business meeting, and fun!  Be sure and check out the House of Friendship, and the silent auction items up for bid.  And take in some of La Crosse’s fun at the free Artspire street fair, just a block or so south of the La Crosse Center.  In the evening, there will be live entertainment there.  We also have several “international” ports of call lined up so you can sample La Crosse’s walkable downtown nightlife.
 
Rotary’s slogans and messages come and go, but this year’s theme will stay with me forever.  Because a central part of each and every Rotarian’s responsibility is truly to “Be the Inspiration”.  That should not end at the close of this Rotary year.  I hope each of us will embrace that mission, and share the gifts of Rotary with many others in the years to come!
