APPLICATIONS FOR THE 2019-20 ROTARY YEAR      Please look for these applications:

Hugh Archer  Awards –    2020 award is now complete

Inventor, engineer, executive, humanitarian, scientist, businessman Past RI President (1989-1990) and Dearborn Rotarian Hugh M. Archer was all those things and more, making him one of Rotary’s “Renaissance Men”  Hugh Archer died on July 15, 2005 in Dearborn Michigan, and his legacy to Rotary lives on in the hearts and minds of Rotarians worldwide. Hugh’s great belief was that Rotarians enjoyed their meetings, enjoyed service, enjoyed informality  and enjoyed getting to know one another.  The RI theme for his year was pure Hugh Archer:  “Enjoy Rotary” Rotary District 6400 and his home club established these award to honor Hugh during his year as Rotary International President.   

This is for a New Project either for an individual club or collaborative with 2 or more clubs.


Hedke Awards      Deadline has passed

There is a survey monkey where you will complete all questions and some free form areas for response.  We recommend that you do the questions on the worksheet and then submit all items thru Survey Monkey.  All applications must be done through Survey Monkey Link.

Please note that this year’s Hedke is different from past years. Questions that required a subjective response have been eliminated. In their place are several questions at the end of the survey to which your club can submit a “free form” response. Please make sure you read those questions carefully and prepare your answers as directed. Failure to upload that document could result in a significant loss of points and penalize your club’s score. 


COG Awards 

The Council of Governor’s (COG) award is the premier award of District 6400 and it is designed to recognize individuals for their exemplary past and continuing service to the District and to their Club.  Just as the cog represents an integral working part of the Rotary logo wheel, the individual represents a vital moving part of the Rotary Wheel of Service.  The COG Award is designed to recognize an individual, currently active, for outstanding service in one or more of the five avenues of service including continued service to the individual’s club.   Please consider nominating one of your club members for this award.  With the member’s name, please highlight their contributions to the club and to the District.  Please email  DG John Chambers with your nominations by May 3rd 2020.
