Around the District
Rotary Legislation 
Have you ever wondered how Rotary International constitutional documents are determined or changed?  Each Rotary district selects a representative and an alternate to serve a three-year term on the Council on Resolutions/Legislation. These representatives assist clubs and districts with composing resolutions and legislation to be proposed and then these representatives vote on any proposed items.

Lumpuma Rural Health Centre Project
The Raytown Rotary Club is working with the Kitwe-North Rotary Club in Zambia to bring water supply to the GG 2238560 Lumpuma Rural Health Centre in rural Zambia.  Recently the Rotary Club of Kitwe North visited the Lumpuma Project to monitor the progress.  Direct water supply to the health centre is critical for their operations.  
A Moment For Peace
In this month following the start of the Israeli/Hamas conflict, focusing on children seems an important topic for A Moment for Peace.  It seems to be a good time to think about Conflict Resolution activities and programs for schools.
A goal of conflict resolution programs in schools is often managing the conflict that arises in everyday life.  Conflict Resolution concepts cover principles of dignity, trauma and resiliency, empathy, emotional regulation, conflict choices, perspective and identity.    One program in Missouri, the Center for Conflict Resolution, uses TALK as an acronym:
T-take a breath
A-ask for a person's perspective and share your own
L-list the options to move forward
K- keep it real; make a plan

Rotary District Grant Series
Part 1

District grants give Rotarians freedom in determining how to best spend funds donated to The Rotary Foundation in their district. Each Rotary year, districts may apply for one district grant, which can be used to support one or more projects, based on that district’s interests and needs.
The Rotary Foundation funds district grants with District Designated Funds (DDF). Each year,
your district may request up to half of your available DDF, which in turn represents half of your district's Annual Fund donations from three years earlier. This system, known as SHARE, enables Rotarians to benefit from the short-term investment of their donation dollars.
In part 1 of our 3 part series we will look at grants around Rotary District 6040 from the 2022-2023 grant cycle.  We hope this series will give clubs ideas for future grant projects.
