The ACTUATOR is your new District Newsletter
Welcome to the new District 6420 Newsletter! We are excited to resume the great work of sharing what's happening at every level of the Rotary with you! Look for news that can assist you at the international, national, district, and club levels. We felt like this refresh needed a new look and name to give it a boost of energy and so the newsletter has a new name, The Actuator. This name was chosen because we hope that it serves the purpose of actuating our clubs and membership, converting inspiration and energy into action for the mission of the Rotary.
October 1 World Series of Giving Status
Good afternoon again, Rotary baseball fans.  We’ve completed one inning of play and several of our clubs have achieved some major successes so far.  The standings by division follow:
Clubs Work Together For Literacy
Three Local Rotary Clubs Support LIFE Literacy Program in Whiteside County.
Three Rotary Club Presidents and Grant Chairs presented a check for $8,000.00 to the L.I.F.E. literacy program of Whiteside County which distributes a book/month to children aged birth through age 5 through the Dolly Parton Imagination Library.

Do you find your club REACTing to the monthly topic of Rotary instead of being proactive and having something planned ahead of time?
