District Conference is being held in Coos Bay this May 3-5 at the Mill Casino. Registration is now open for the event, hotel, and RV reservations.  Many great speakers are lined up and you can't go wrong with the coast.  For more information on speakers and accommodations go the events tab on www.district5110.org.  DG Bill sent an email with the full brochure of events and really do recommend that if you can go.  So far over 300 people have registered for this event and the Mill Casino has been booked full but other accommodations are still available with a special Rotary rate for the event.

Downtown Coos Bay Wine Walk on May 3rd is kicking off it's 12th year and has contributed $280,000.00 for local non-profits.  Though the event is every First Friday of the month, the May event is going to benefit the Dolphin Players that operate a theater in Empire and produce six plays a year and the really nice part is that they are expecting the tall ships to visit on the downtown boardwalk and the Dolphin Players have participated in Pirate costumes before.  The Walk will have about 2 dozen businesses that host and starts at the Visitor Information Center at 50 Central Ave at 5pm and runs till 7pm with guest donations of $10 to join and get a map of the participating businesses.  More information is available on Facebook at facebook.com/CoosBayWineWalk.

Peace Literacy Symposium will be on May 5th after the District Conference from 8am to 3pm at the Southwestern Oregon Community College in the Empire Hall.  This is a free event, brought to us by the Rotary Club of Coos Bay-North Bend and First Community Credit Union, that will include breakfast and lunch.  The keynote speaker is Paul K. Chappell, a West Point graduate, Iraq War veteran, and Peace Literacy Director of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation.  His topics will cover our human needs and the tangles of trauma, understanding and healing aggression, recognizing and applying the power of respect, and building realistic hope in challenging times.  This event is designed by Interact, Rotaract, Rotarians, and educators who work with youth in the hopes that peace is not merely the goal but to learn practical skill sets that will bring increased respect, empathy, happiness, and self-worth into our homes, schools, workplaces, and our local and world communities.  Reservations are required for this event no later than April 29 with Mary Hoskins.  Please email your name, e-mail address, and phone number to mhrotary5110@gmail.com to RSVP.
