News Around District 5840
Dear Fellow Rotarians,
 
I hope this message finds you all well and in great health. During March, Rotary Water and Sanitation Month, we celebrate our commitment to creating healthier communities by supplying clean water and sanitation facilities to prevent the spread of infectious diseases. Last month, Winter Storm Uri presented many challenges to both clean water and proper sanitation for many residents throughout South Texas. This was only a glimpse into a much dire situation around the world. 
It's been an unimaginable week for all of Texas residents due to the winter storm. Here in District 5840, many are still without food, power, and safe drinking water. Some have even experienced structural damage to their homes (collapsed ceilings, busted water pipes, etc.). We are currently gathering information to support those Rotarians in need. If you need support, complete this form. 
Did you know that February is Peace and Conflict Resolution Month with Rotary and that the first week of March is considered "Peace Corps Week"? Connections between the two organizations do not end there.  As you may know, Rotary and Peace Corps have an official relationship where Rotarians can sponsors Peace Corps projects and much more. On March 1, the Peace Corps celebrates 60 years since President John F. Kennedy established the agency in 1961. The anniversary of the Peace Corps commemorates international peace and friendship, volunteerism and service. Discover the benefits of Peace Corps service from a panelist who share their stories of how John F. Kennedy impacted their lives.
