   DISTRICT 5520
    “Inside Passage”

The purpose of this project is
 to significantly increase the
amount of money raised by RI
 District 5520 for The Rotary
  Foundation which, in turn,
 will ultimately increase the
money available for grants in
          this District.
        Benefits of the Raffle

•   Individual club members who sell the raffle tickets can become
    Paul Harris Sustaining Members (every Rotarian every year)
    and potentially do so without spending their money.
•   Individual members that choose to purchase the raffle tickets
    themselves are being Paul Harris Sustaining Members and have
    the added bonus of winning two cabins on the District cruise.
•   All club members (especially those selling tickets) can use this
    program to create excitement about and interest in Rotary.
•   Actively participating clubs will have far more of their
    members become Paul Harris Fellows and thus more involved,
    vested members.
    Benefits of the District Cruise

•    Participating Rotary families (and their friends) have the
     opportunity for a great cruise experience at the best fare
     offered by Princess Cruises.
•    Participating Rotarians build good will and better friendship
     through a shared experience and often advance the causes of
     Rotary by sharing ideas and concerns in a non-competitive
•    All club members can use this program (especially those going
     on the cruise) to create excitement about and interest in Rotary.
         How the raffle works
•   Each club member is given one (or more) booklets of ten
    tickets in an envelope with their membership # (or some
    means of tracking the $).
•   $ from the sale of the tickets, completed ticket stubs (and
    unsold tickets) are to be returned to the appropriate club
    officer in the tracking envelope.
•   The clubs are then responsible to get the $ and the stubs to
    the District Raffle Committee prior to the District Conference
    and to assist in tracking the individual members donations.
•   At the District Conference, the wining ticket will be drawn
    with the person that bought and the person that sold the
    ticket each being awarded the following prize:
  A cabin on the District Cruise (or another
  Princess cruise of their choice) at a value
  not to exceed $1000.00/person including
   NCF’s (non-commissionable fees), gov’t
               fees and taxes.

Airfare and transfers between the ship and the port’s
     airport are the responsibility of the winners.
  Booking is to be done within 30 days of the raffle
 and the cruise is to be completed on or before the
        completion date of the District Cruise.
 How the District Cruise works
• The District Leadership determines a cruise date and
• SOUTHWEST PASSAGE will reserve the appropriate #
  of cabins, negotiate group rates, etc. for the District
  5520 group.
• Cruise participants would contact SOUTHWEST
  PASSAGE directly to reserve their cabin on the cruise.
• SOUTHWEST PASSAGE then makes the bookings,
  collects the money and distributes documents and
  information as needed.

                                region. I cannot think of better people

The “Inside Passage” of Alaska has the most extensive coastal
                     forest in the World
This is a land with a fascinating native
culture and a remarkable history.

Henry Gannett, a member of the Harriman Expedition, which
named most of the glaciers in Prince William sound may have
had is tongue slightly in cheek when he wrote:
        “There is a word of advice and caution to be given to
those intending to visit Alaska for pleasure or for sightseeing.
If you are old, go by all means, but if you are young … Wait!
The scenery in Alaska is much grander than anything else of
its kind in the world, and it is not well to dull one’s capacity
for enjoyment by seeing the finest first!”

       “… but can’t you hear the wild? It’s calling you.
Let us probe the silent places, let us seek what luck betide us,
            let us journey to a lonely land I know.
             There’s a whisper on the night wind,
              there’s a star agleam to guide us,
          and the wild is calling, calling … let us go.”
