June 2022 Edition
News From Around District 5840
DG Kristy Vandenberg's June Message
Hello District 5840,
I am writing this message from Houston, the site of the 2022 Rotary International Convention.  How appropriate it is that June's theme is Fellowship.  I have just spent 6 days with Rotarians from throughout the world united in fellowship.  These members are diverse, smart, of varying ages and backgrounds and have shown compassion for others and passion for Rotary.  All have displayed a united theme and it is "Serve to Change Lives."  
Uvalde Community Relief Fund
The horror of the May 24 shooting at Robb Elementary School in the community of Uvalde has been felt around the world, and Rotarians everywhere have reached out to the Rotary Club of Uvalde and District 5840 asking where they can send donations which will go towards healing.
In response, and in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Uvalde, our Rotary District 5840 has set-up a Uvalde Community Relief Fund within our 501c3 foundation. The purpose of this fund will be to assist and comfort, where possible, those who are grieving and who are most affected by the shooting as well as to aid in the restoration of the shattered world view of  the children, families, educators, and first responders of Uvalde.
