Rotary International has announced a major initiative of “Peace through Service.” The basic action units for the initiative are Peacebuilder Clubs. I ask that your club consider becoming a Peacebuilder Club by assigning a Peacebuilding committee of at least 2 club members. The committee will be asked to read a short paper called “Your Piece of Peace” and help to build the impact of peace in your club. The purpose is to more powerfully implement RI’s Peace and Conflict Resolution area of focus in your club. My goal is to have every club in District 5710 become a Peacebuilder Club! 
As part of our Peacebuilding initiatives, our District has partnered with the Kansas Attorney General’s office in a program to fight sex trafficking. I hope your club will also join us in projects to combat this form of modern day slavery. 
There is information about both of these programs on the District website or contact the District Peacebuilding chair, Patti Mellard at to learn more or schedule a program on the “War against sex trafficking.”
