District Govenor Aruna Koushik thanked individual members of the Club for what they have done: Kim Towar for helping with the District Directory, Dave Colton, for being a “hope champion” following her theme of “illuminating hope” by giving water/Gatorade to sanitation workers, and Ted Everingham for becoming a Major Donor. Money received from those like Ted have just provided 45 artificial limbs for those in need in India.
The District’s goal for donations to the RI Foundation is $275,000. The District recently raised $10,000 through a skydiving event for Polio eradication, which turned into $30,000 with matching funds.
Each Club is being asked to submit an essay describing a service project that “illuminates hope” that will be put together in a magazine format for the District Conference. The Conference will take place from May 5-12, 2022 at the Grand Hotel. To show support for the District Governor and to learn more about Rotary, please register for two upcoming virtual events. On 10/30, from 9:00am to 11:00am, is One Rotary Summit, where Rotarians will share their successes with increasing membership, supporting the foundation, and launching service projects. On 11/9 at 7:00pm is Together We Grow, a foundation and membership event which will feature Jennifer, Jones, the RI President for 2022-2023.
