The 2010 District 5400 Conference held May 21st and 22nd at The Sun Valley Lodge was a well attended affair. There were more registered participants than in many years passed and folks from as far away as Ecuador, Nigeria and Brazil were at hand. The Hailey club hosted a GSE reception the night before at the Sweetwater Grange and over 100 folks turned out from up and down the valley. The weekend conference proved valuable both in terms of educational breakout sessions as well as after hours revelry. The Hailey club representatives were duly noted from the podium as the responsible party for keeping our Nigerian and Brazilian guests out til the wee hours at The Cellar Pub. If you missed it this year, be sure to join us next year!

Chulalongkorn celebrates 10 years of equipping leaders to build peace
Bobby Anderson was helping former freedom fighters in Aceh, Indonesia, adjust to life after combat when he heard about the Rotary Peace Center at Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok.
