The Youth Exchange committee is seeking help to update our website and keep things current. Someone out there must be good with websites...  It's not a huge commitment, but someone needs to take time to see how it works, update it and then keep dates, names, happenings current.
 
For more information on this, please contact Vera Sosnowski at veraski@yahoo.com
 
 
 

 
 
I am writing this update after just finishing the half-way point in my club visits.  I am truly enjoying my visits with all of you and hearing about your unique strengths and plans for the future.  In this update, I want to focus on the 100th anniversary of the Rotary Foundation.
 
The 100th anniversary of the Rotary Foundation is a major milestone for one of the best humanitarian organizations in the world today.  This entrepreneurial journey began with a small meeting of fellowship in 1903.  Today we are an organization of over 1.2 million in over 200 territories and countries.  Our results are measured in lives saved, gallons of clean water, conflict resolution and hope for the future.  The Polio Plus story alone is a testament to the power of sustained focus and collaboration that is achievable.  The skills we have honed in this journey can be applied to some of the greatest challenges we face here at home and across the world.
 
I feel truly blessed to have the opportunity to serve as District Governor.  To have this honor during the 100th anniversary is truly special and I am committed to making our District, bigger, better and bolder.
 
 
 
Foundation Minute for Week of November 28th
The Rotary Foundation is often mentioned as having been given the highest rating by Charities Navigator - an American independent charity watchdog organization that evaluates charitable organizations in the United States. And this past November 15th, it joined some of the boldest names in American giving – Kellogg, Komen and MacArthur  - as it was recognized with the annual Award for Outstanding Foundation by the Association of Fundraising Professionals. 
 
Jason Lee, its president and CEO, stated, “While almost everyone is familiar with Rotary, not everyone may realize just how much of an impact Rotary and The Rotary Foundation have had on countless people and communities across the globe.  On behalf of the entire charitable sector and people around the world, all of us at the AFP are honored to be able to recognize The Rotary Foundation as our 2016 Outstanding Foundation. “
 
AFP’s committee of judges cited Rotary’s comprehensive campaign to eradicate polio as a major driver of the selection. They also mentioned that Rotary applies a methodical, purposeful approach to support a wide variety of causes, from providing clean water to educating the next generation of peace professionals. 
 
Your continued support of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation enabled this to happen.  Thank you.
