Darrell and Peg Blue

Fellow Rotarians,

We had a great District Conference!

Peg and I invited you to join us in Yakima, May 1-4, 2014 for the District 5060 annual conference. This year, we combined my theme of "The Magic of Rotary" with RI President Burton's theme "Engage Rotary Change Lives." We know that many of the seemingly magical accomplishments of Rotary have indeed changed lives across the globe. At this conference we learned of how Rotary has changed lives and continues to do so.

Our committee planned lots of fun activities and some surprise events. Thanks for having joined us in Yakima to celebrate "The Magic of Rotary." If you didn't make it, please consider attending district conference in Kelowna in June 2015 and returning to Yakima May 12-15, 2016.

See you there.

Yours in Rotary,

DG Darrell Blue and Peg

Come join us in Yakima

Rotary District 5060



The 500+ members of Yakima’s three rotary clubs are very excited to welcome you to the District 5060 Conference May 1-4, in Yakima, WA. 

Every Rotary District Conference has something uniquely wonderful about it. We’re hoping that there is a special appeal, curiosity perhaps, that will bring you to Conference in Yakima. Have you SEEN our welcome rap video? Hopefully you recognize our DG Darrell Blue in the Illinois orange hoodie, along with a few other of his fellow Downtown Rotarians. 

Like many other clubs in District 5060, we can brag about our scenery, our abundant sunshine. And we will! Not to mention our world-famous Yakima Valley wines. Our gorgeous Convention Center is the perfect venue for all Conference sessions. 

Naturally there will be great activities lined up for you to enjoy the area: golf, spa, hiking, biking, fishing and more, plus a Mexican themed BBQ (Thursday May 1) in honor of Cinco de Mayo at the newly built Rotary Pavilion.
