In accordance with the provisions of Rotary International Bylaws Article 12, Rotary District 5340 created a Nominating Committee to review and interview candidates recommended by their respective clubs to serve as District Governor during the Rotary Year 2023-2024. 
This year’s committee included seven past, current and future District Governors and was chaired by Immediate Past District Governor Marta Knight.

Rotary International and District By-laws require the Immediate Past District Governor to provide each club an independently reviewed annual statement and report of district finances within one year of serving.  The attached statement and report will be discussed and adopted at our 2020 District Conference.
Just a reminder that time is running out!  If your club wants to propose an enactment for the 2022 Council on Legislation, read the following.
The time has come for your club to make an impact on the entire Rotary world!
Every three years our legislative body, The Council on Legislation, meets to consider impactful changes to our constitutional documents: the RI Constitution, the RI Bylaws and the Standard Rotary Club Constitution.  While this event takes place in the spring of 2022, the time to propose enactments for that council is now!
The Del Mar-Solana Beach Rotary Club will be holding a Blood Drive on Halloween, Saturday, October 31, 2020 from 11:3am - 5:00pm, in conjunction with the San Diego Blood Bank. 
The Rotary Club of Del Mar announced today that although 2020 has seen cancellations of many events, the popular CHILI AND QUACKERS and DUCKY DERBY events will bring the community together once again. This year, the format will be a Quadruple Crown, four race event. On Monday, October 26, 2020, at 5:45pm, the 8th annual Ducky Derby will be virtual for the first time ever. Prizes include cash (up to $300) and a Ranch 45 dinner and wine pairing (valued at $500). 
Jessie Case
I would like you to meet and get to know Jessie Case. Who, you might ask, is Jessie Case? Let me do my best to introduce you. First, Jessie is the co-chair of Rotaract for our District. Next year she will chair Rotaract all by her lonesome. But, there is more to Jessie than that.
Join us for an exciting Rotary Foundation Seminar.  The seminar will be held via Zoom.  Everyone is encouraged to attend.  Invite your friends and family to join in.  They will walk away with a deeper appreciation for all the good work Rotary does locally and world-wide.  
Plan a fun event for your Club to celebrate the AMAZING success of Rotary International’s very successful program to eliminate polio from the face of the earth.
In September, all of Africa was declared Polio-free after four years without a case.  We are down to just two countries—Pakistan and Afghanistan—and World Health teams are going into those areas again to give the precious drops to children to save them from the scourge of Polio.  
If your club is participating in World Polio Day events, either club-sponsored or in the District's Virtual Polio Walk (see flier in this edition of NEWSBITS), you can pick up End Polio Now pins and wristbands to distribute to those who are participating in celebrating World Polio Day (Week)—October 24—31.
