An event fit for the stars...

Roll out the red carpet! Move over Hollywood! District Conference 2022 will be an event fit for the stars. Our clubs will be the main feature as we celebrate a great year for District 5150. The event is open to all District 5150 members and guests. 


The Emcee: Jim Pelley

A former stand-up comedian and contributing writer for the original NBC Saturday Night Live show, Jim Pelley has left ’em laughing for more than 25 years.  Jim Pelley resonates with people. He’s the class clown, favorite brother-in-law, and helpful consultant all in one. Jim Pelley says the things the rest of us are thinking, but wouldn’t dare point out. Best of all?  Jim Pelley is a proud Rotarian and is sure to add a unique layer of fun to our program.
