I was the Governor for Rotary International District 5370 for a year starting July 1, 2012.  I had heard about a “Million Dollar Dinner” in District 5360 (which includes Calgary, Alberta, Canada) that raised over two million dollars in 2011.  I thought – “If they could do it – so can we.”   District 5370 includes 62 Rotary clubs in northern Alberta,  northeast British Columbia,  Northwest Saskatchewan and Northwest Territories.   There are over 2300 Rotarians in the District.    While my contact details are below,  key members of the Million Dollar Dinner team are also below.
