|MAUI NO KA OI - MAKING A DIFFERENCE IN HAWAI'I
MESSAGE FROM MARK MERRIAN, DISTRICT GOVERNOR
August 9, 2023 was a tragic day for our Rotarians, families and friends on the Island of Maui. The fires across the island have changed lives forever. Truly devastating. Our sympathy, thoughts and prayers are with everyone impacted.
As people of action, we can take immediate action. As we come together to recover and rebuild, we need to support each other. We need to Create Hope for Maui.
Through our Rotary District 5000 Foundation, a relief fund has been established. Foundation President Dave Hamil and Treasurer Sharon Amano will handle all donations. A committee will be organized shortly to find the greatest needs for distribution of monies. A single fund will be the most helpful over time to provide the most significant benefits.
Please consider donating to this special fund, Maui Fires Relief Fund. Mahalo to the Rotary Club of Waikiki for collecting monies at their lunch meeting today. These are the first contributions to the fund. Please also widely share this opportunity to help.
Stay safe, take care and mahalo for creating hope.

|SAT., SEPTEMBER 9TH - ROTARY LEADERSHIP INSTITUTE IS IN-PERSON
KEISER UNIVERSITY MIAMI
As Rotarians, you are all leaders, some in your community, some in your profession, and some in life in general.
At RLI, our purpose is to give you the necessary tools and skills to be better Rotarians. As in every endeavor, the more you know about anything, the more interesting it becomes. Rotary is most assuredly one of those areas that the more you put into it, the more you get out of it. RLI can make that possible for you. Graduates of RLI are more likely to remain in, and be a bigger part of Rotary, than any other demographic.
A Note for In-Person Attendees: You should arrive around 8:30 AM for registration sign-in, material pick-up, and breakfast gathering. Classes begin promptly at 9:00 AM and will be completed by 4:30 PM.
Parts 1, 2 and 3 will be offered. Also, the graduate class for membership breakfast, lunch, and all materials for $100.*Special Note for Online Attendees: You must complete all sessions in a 'Part 'to register for the next level in person! Check your profile!
