A One Rotary Summit (ORS) is all about the synergy among Membership, Public Image, and Humanitarian Service.
Those attending the ORS will jointly develop creative ways to achieve and sustain membership growth and retention, to increase Rotary Foundation giving and project engagement, and to gain enhanced public image in their communities. 
This year’s ORS places emphasis on the synergy described above, People of Action, this year’s Rotary Theme: Be the Inspiration, and “Why Rotary?”  That synergy is explained in Welcome to ORS - a two-minute video by Jennifer Jones, past Rotary International Vice President.


This is for ALL CLUB MEMBERS – new and experienced members.  It is suggested that all club president elects also plan on attending as the second part of their PETS training.  Since this is replacing Assembly this year, be sure to also invite your committee chairs and board members.  We also recommend that anyone who is a member of your club's membership committee to attend (And we all know we are all on the membership committee, right?)
There is no cost to attend this interactive event!  But we do need you to sign up. Go to the District Page to do so HERE.
Once we know about how many people we are expecting, we will send out the location in the Omaha/Council Bluffs area.
Use the comments box to detail how many people from your club will be attending if you can't take the time to register individual people.

Dear Rotarians,
As a Rotarian we are sure you are aware of the recent flooding in eastern Nebraska and southwestern Iowa. It has impacted many of the communities our clubs serve. As a district,  know we are here to help in any way we can. We have had several Rotary districts outside Nebraska contact us to make donations. We have decided to direct cash contributions directly to the American Red Cross as they are best suited to respond to help those most in need. If you or your club would like to make a cash contribution to the relief effort, donations can be made payable to and sent to:
American Red Cross - Nebraska Flooding
2912 S 80th Ave 
Omaha, NE  68124
These donations will stay locally and benefit the communities most affected in Nebraska and SW Iowa. 
As the waters recede and recovery efforts begin we will begin coordinating efforts in the district to help our clubs most effected serve their communities as they recover from this devastating event. We will be reaching out to all of the members of District 5650 to enlist your help to help our fellow Rotarians and their communities recover from this monumental disaster. 
Yours in Rotary,
Julie O'Hara
District Governor

We have taken this policy for the safety of our members and the staff at German American Society. We appreciate your understanding.

Monday, December 17th we will be having our 7th Annual Millard Rotary White Elephant Gift Exchange.  If you are not familiar of what a white elephant gift exchange is, here is a brief run down.

Participants will draw a number from a hat when you arrive to determine the gift choice order, starting with one, up to the total number of participants.  Each person takes a turn choosing a gift.  The first person picks a gift, opens it and shows it to the rest of the group.  Then the person that drew number two can either pick an unopened gift or “steal” a previously opened gift.  If the gift was “stolen,” the person who had their gift taken from them gets to choose another gift and then the turn passes to the next number.  The gift exchange continues until all gifts have been opened.  The person that drew number 1 also gets to go last.


Here are a couple of simple house rules:  Please bring a wrapped gift with a value of no more than $20 to participate.  A gift cannot be “stolen” more than two times.

***NEW*** Anyone wearing an ugly sweater/ holiday attire at this meeting will get an additional attendance credit. There may even be a prize.
