Happy Independence Day!  
WHR 2020-2021!

Dear Fellow Rotarians,

I wish to congratulate Jeff Pang on officially assuming the helm of our Club, today . I am especially pleased that despite the physical adversities that he recently faced as well as the troubled times in which we now live,  Jeff has accepted the challenge to lead our Club for the rest of 2020 and on into 2021.

I also wish to congratulate Naomi Masuno who will be sworn in as our next DG for the new Rotary year at 5 pm. (i.e. online). She is more than capable of handling the office of the DG as we all know having worked and played with her as a fellow Club member for all of these years.  I am really looking forward to working with Naomi and Jeff as we forge new paths and take on new challenges in the face of the COVID-19 Pandemic. I am confident that the rest of the Club members will do their best to make this Rotary year a productive one.

I salute Mike Kato who now happily wears the “PP” designation after his name.  I always knew you’d make a great President when you joined our Club.  I can only hope that you continue to be an enthusiastic supporter of our Club’s governance and activities as you have been in the past.

I wish all of you the warmest Aloha as we begin the new Rotary Year.

Richard A. Ing

RI Convention 2021
From: Randy Hart <>

Subject: RI Convention
All D5000 Rotarians,
Wanted to send out a gentle reminder to encourage everyone to sign up for the first ever virtual Rotary International Convention.  Can't beat the cost, it's FREE.  RI President Mark believes we will set the record for the number of attendees at an RI convention.  He's very excited about the convention, so come be a part of it.  Easiest way to sign up is just go to the D5000 website.
Speaking of conventions, as your DGND I get the dubious honor of chairing the D5000 sign up for the RI 2021 convention in Taipei.  Started doing a little research and put together an info sheet, attached, that I hope is helpful.  First up though is to register for the convention.  As most of you are aware the best time and most cost effective time to sign up is at the current year convention, 2020.  Of course there is no physical RI convention this year so wanted to send out a heads up so folks can start planning.  In summary, more detail attached and much more at the website:
-  Best rate 20-26 June during the Virtual RI Convention
-  RI will totally refund your registration fee if the convention is cancelled
-  Hotel information is not available at this time.  However I would like to get a feel for how many are interested in a group reservation?  Will send out more information as soon as Experient and RI open up for registration.
-  Host Hospitality Night seems to always sell out, so sign up early.
-  Lot's more info to follow as we move forward.
Looking forward to a great time in Taipei with a bunch of D5000 Rotarians.
