Thank you to our February Cabinet meeting sponsor, Integrated Financial Benefits Network.

District Governor Susan Valenta invites you to join her in Monterrey, Mexico, March 30-April 3, 2016 for the culmination of the Governors Wheelchair Project. Since July 2015, clubs in District 5170 have donated over $100,000 to purchase wheelchairs for those in need.  This trip will provide an opportunity to meet those who will directly benefit from the generosity of the clubs in Rotary District 5170.
