District 5470 Conference was held in Pueblo Colorado last weekend.  Kim Moore and Shellie Peterson along with Laura Delgato, and our out-bound exchange students all attended.  The students had great fun catching up with the other exchange kids and going on a trip to the Royal Gorge.  Doug Secrist was also in attendance from the Pagosa Mountain Rotary Club.
There were Roundtable Discussions regarding RYE, Rotaract, Membership, RYLA, Grants and Scholarships as well as a very motivational key note speaker, Mike Forney, the Zone Regional Public Image Coordinator.
Our very own Laura Delgato did a fine job in the Flag Ceremony.  It was quite impressive to see so many fine young people from so many different countries!  These ambassadors are learning about other cultures and sharing theirs.  They are learning how to promote peace and understanding in our world.
There were displays like the one shown above from many of the Rotary Clubs represented at the Conference.  It was very interesting to walk around and see some of the projects that other clubs are doing.
