WEEK 13 - BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 26, 2016
BE SURE TO MAKE YOUR ALL STAR CONFERENCE HOTEL RESERVATIONS
The response from Rotary District 6970 for the All Star Conference and 2017 Rotary International Convention has been incredible!
Our district is ranked 5th out of 538 districts globally for paid registrations. We are also very fortunate to have our very own block of hotel rooms at the Atlanta Sheraton Downtown. If you have not yet made hotel reservations and plan to make the trip to Atlanta, it is very important that you do so in the next few weeks. As of today, we have booked 80% of the rooms provided to us by Rotary International.
Any rooms not been reserved or rooms we have not received deposits will be released back to Rotary at the end of October. On the All Star Conference website you can register for the conference and/or the convention, reserve a seat on a chartered bus and book your hotel room.
Don’t miss this once in a lifetime event as we celebrate the Centennial of the Rotary Foundation next June. www.allstarconference.org
ROTARY DISTRICT 6970 SERVING HUMANITY
This year, the clubs of Rotary District 6970 will serve humanity through service projects, fundraisers, socials and a variety of other special events.

We will be compiling these materials so we can celebrate in Atlanta the incredible achievements made by the clubs of District 6970 during this exciting Rotary year.
Only 254 days until the All Star Conference in Atlanta!
