Group brings out good in communities

News

Crime, cruelty, and corruption are all over the internet and on our television screens. One international group is working to bring out the good in our communities.

“We need more people doing more good in this world,” says Kevin Black, Co-Chair of Rotary District 5580 Conference.

And that is exactly what these Rotarians plan to do with their annual District Conference: more good.

“This is a time for us to get together, share our experiences and talk about how we can make a broader impact on our state, on our country, on the world,” says Black.

The conference is a chance for members of Rotary Clubs to exchange project ideas and spark positive changes.

“We actually set aside time during this conference to go out and serve our community. We tied blankets for the Domestic Violence Center, we painted murals at Ramstad School,” says Black.

Speakers like Clinton Romesha, who received the Medal of Honor for his actions in the Battle of Kamdesh, shared their stories of hope and encouragement.

“He was an incredibly inspiring guy and to get the caliber of these sorts of speakers at a conference like that is something that’s really, truly worthwhile,” says Evan Burrell.

They are working to change old perceptions about the club.

“People think that we’re still just old men and that there’s not women involved. It’s not just a boring club that people go and eat lunch at anymore,” says Burrell.

They stress the value of working as a team.

“I think there are a lot of people in our communities who want to get involved and the first step is always the hardest,” says Black.

Always on the lookout to do more good.

The conference also included family sessions to discuss conflict resolution and peace, literacy, and disease prevention in communities.
