On Wednesday, April 21st, the day before the official Earth Day, 17 Harbortown Rotarians, friends and family gathered at the Waabizheshikana segment of the Western Waterfront Trail.  Armed with trash bags, trash pickers, gloves and mud boots, we spread out in teams to tackle the clean-up of the various trails along the St. Louis River. Everything from bottles to plastic wrappers to an empty carton of goat milk and a creepy dirty doll body were removed from the lovely trail sides and packed up in bags to be picked up at the main parking lot.
It was a lovely sunset over the river and a chance for Rotarians to reconnect with friends and other members we've not seen in person in quite some time - all while doing a small favor for the planet and our community. Several Rotarians were even thanked by local residents for the help in keeping the trails clean and preserved for others to enjoy.
The event wrapped up with over 75 pounds of trash collected and representing over 12 acres of area impacted by the cleaning efforts. Thank you to all members who showed up in large numbers to make an impact this Earth Day!

For most of us, 2020 went down as memorable with some aspects truly challenging and other aspects richly rewarding in opportunities to serve and connect! As we start the New Year, our District Conference Committee, with the support of District Executives, has determined that due to the uncertainty of the safety of large group gatherings, the 2021 Rotary District Conference will be held virtually. We are hopeful that health officials will allow us to incorporate locally held in-person events in conjunction with the virtual district-wide meeting. 
Going virtual also allows a change of format using an approach similar to the Virtual RI 2020 Convention and makes our district conference accessible for ALL Rotarians in D5580. Our genuine hope is to have a very high percentage of our 2,550+ Rotarians joining in.  The plan is to expand the conference from three days to six days but limit the presentation and networking times to specific times each day, providing optimum opportunity for Rotarians to participate. 
Everyone on the planning committee is excited to deliver a truly outstanding conference and make it accessible to every Rotarian in District 5580. We already have some fantastic speakers lined up and cannot wait to share the agenda with you!
