Dear District 5170 Rotarians,
The last several months have been fun, inspirational, and extremely busy.  Those of us that visited Monterrey, Mexico last month for our District wheelchair distribution and service trip had a truly terrific experience.  We handed out some 250 wheelchairs.  We also assembled some prefabricated houses, and helped out at four schools by assembling, planting, painting, and performing various other tasks while enjoying the friendship and Rotary camaraderie of our Rotarian hosts from Monterrey.  
And I hope you all had a wonderful time at our District Conference!  I think Conference Chair DGN Jeff Orth and his committee did a terrific job – my grateful thanks to all of them.
At the district conference, I had the pleasure of announcing that, of all the 23 districts in RI zones 25 and 26, our district had the largest increase in membership.  Hat’s off to our club presidents, and to membership committee chair PDG Joe Hamilton and his membership committee for their excellent and effective work to strengthen our clubs and district!
And the year is not over!  Our last district cabinet meeting of the Rotary year on May 13 will feature popular Rotary historian and author, Linda Hamilton.  That evening Linda will treat us to a multi-media presentation she researched and wrote featuring some key events in Rotary history.  Her presentation will include some rare and treasured photos.  The cabinet meeting, to which all Rotarians are invited, will be at the Embassy Suites in Milpitas at 6:30 p.m.  Reserve now by calling District Administrator, Brittany Overbeck, 408-273-4577.
Finally, rumor has it that plans are already underway for our district’s annual Roast and Toast the evening of Wednesday, July 15.  I hope to see you there.

District 5170 

Many Rotarians in our district have inquired how they can help the victims of the recent earthquake in Nepal.  There are several ways.  First, Rotary District 3292 in Nepal has set up a disaster relief fund to help victims in the hardest hit areas. Immediate funds will go towards food, water, medical supplies, and shelter.  District 3292 is also working on long term support plans.  If you wish to contribute to this fund, you may send a check payable to the Rotary District 5170 Foundation, marking your check “Nepal Earthquake Relief.”  Such checks can be mailed to the attention of Dennis Young, District Foundation Treasurer, 2570 W El Camino Real #150, Mountain View, CA 94040.  The District Foundation will then send the funds on to Rotary District 3292’s disaster relief fund.  Dennis’s telephone no. is (650) 209-1811 and his email address is if you need to contact him. 
Additionally, Rotary International partner ShelterBox has sent a response team to the affected areas to determine immediate needs. Because of previous disasters in Nepal, the group already has tents and other nonfood items ready for deployment.  ShelterBox has advised us that it cannot accept donations restricted to Nepal,  but that your support will help it provide emergency aid to families affected by the earthquake in Nepal as well as survivors affected by disaster across the world.  For more information about ShelterBox, you may visit  If you have questions, you can email
