Dear Rotarians,

Best wishes to each of you for a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year!  Thanks for all you have accomplished in your clubs, in your communities, and across the District during the first half of our Rotary year.  Local grant projects have been completed, fundraising events held, and new global grant projects have been submitted to the Foundation.  As we look ahead to the second half, we anticipate our clubs will be reaching their 2019-20 goals in giving to the Annual Fund and to polio eradication.  In that regard, we want to lift up two clubs who made notable progress in their giving to the Rotary Foundation.

Rotary International is launching a campaign called, “Countdown to History.”  Goals were set and pledges were made, the and we can’t do it without you, as Rotarians. We are asking for Rotarians across District 5970 to give a minimum of $40 to End Polio Now. This will get our District to the goal set by Rotary International.
