Weekly update, leaving December behind -- a brand new year ahead!
Here in the USA many folks make donations to their favorite charities as close to the end of the year as possible.
Please keep The (our) Rotary Foundation in mind. In addition to the extraordinary efforts being made to eradicate polio, we need to fund annual giving. Remember 50% of all the money given by individuals and clubs to the annual fund returns to the district three years from now. Contact PDG Karen for more information. Karen chairs our district's foundation subcommittee for annual giving.
Also, at the club level, remember ShelterBox USA, another 501(c)(3), where as always "The Need Exists, The Need Persists." Visit www.shelterboxusa.org for news about latest disaster relief efforts and how to make a contribution. . Locally, Peter Klock of the Rotary Club of East Hartford is the ShelterBox representative for our district; contact him for more information.
Two more dates as we head toward the beginning of January: (1) newsletter articles must be submitted before the tenth of each month in order to appear in the following month's district newsletter; (2) to be considered at this year's district conference, any proposals to amend the district bylaws must be submitted to PDG Ray before the end of this month.
Get in touch with me for more detail or contact information for anyone mentioned above.
See you around the district in 2010.
