Sleep in Heavenly Peace     Bunk Bed Build Day

The 2020 District 6670 Conference will include a service project for Rotarians and their family members as well as District Rotaract and Interact members. Rotary District 6670 is partnering with Sleep in Heavenly Peace to build bunk beds for children who do not have beds. Sleep in Heavenly Peace is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization with the mission that “No Kid Sleeps On The Floor In Our Town.” Our goal for the 2020 District Conference is to have the BIGGEST Bunk Bed Build Day in Southwestern Ohio but we need your support! Beds built on the morning of April 25th will be delivered to children in need in Butler, Clinton and Warren Counties on another day after this event. Our goal is to build 150 beds (75 bunk beds) in just a few short hours.

Service Commitment
Over 150 volunteers are needed to help build beds from 8 AM- 12 PM on the campus of Wilmington College. No experience is necessary however volunteers must be age 13 years old or older. There is a job for everyone no matter the skill level. Unable to help all four hours? Split your Rotary Club into two shifts. Over 50 Wilmington College students will also be joining us a part of their Service Day on campus. We will measure and cut wood as well as sand, drill, and stain. Let’s roll up our sleeves together and demonstrate the Rotary mission of providing service to others during our 2020 District Conference!

Joslyn and The Sweet Compression

SATURDAY EVENING ENTERTAINMENT

After growing up singing in the church choir, and cultivating her dynamic voice and performance skills in backup roles and stage plays, Joslyn Hampton teamed with her stepfather, Marty Charters (a touring guitarist and songwriter who has shared the stage with legends such as Junior Wells and Van Morrison), to compose a captivating set of tunes and assemble an ace band. Joslyn & The Sweet Compression (including Steve Holloman - keyboards, Smith Donaldson - bass, Rashawn Fleming - drums, Joe Carucci - saxophone, and Chase Fleming - trombone and trumpet) combine to deliver a hook-filled mix of funk and soul on their self-titled debut album, released in May, 2019. A headlining favorite at regional clubs and music festivals, they are poised to engage fans across the country with widespread touring in 2020.

"Magical...gives everybody the joy." — Billboard Magazine
"A refreshing take on the neo-soul / funk sound, unbound by modern cliches." — Glide Magazine
"A marvel...an instant classic!” — Soul Tracks

"I've never seen a band come up more quickly...with more immediate skill and swagger than Joslyn & the Sweet Compression. Joslyn's vocal command and stage presence is special, and her band is brick-sh**house tight." — Travis Young, Moonshiner's Ball
