Some of you may recall ‘voting’ at the last District Conference to help select a short list of activities that Rotarians may be found doing while NOT doing Rotary.  This was the start of a District wide fund raising effort to help DG Zoe reach her 17-18 Foundation goal.  Evan Kurtz (Dryden Rotary, Area #6 FAD) had the initial idea and enlisted Barney Schug (Ithaca Noon) to help work out the details. Tony Salerno (Dryden Rotary) was dragged in to lend his insight and to help set up the online ordering.
 
We have all seen the 'Rotary at Work' T-shirts but Rotary is about more than working. To help promote the fun aspects of Rotary, while maybe attracting younger folks and new members, we need to let the world know what else Rotarians do. Evan had thought for several years that T-shirts saying "Rotarian xxx-ing" would be a fun way to do this.  These shirts could promote any one of scores of activities that Rotarian are involved with and, with DG Zoe’s ambitious Foundation goal in mind, might be a way to raise money.
 
The ’voting’ at the District Conference helped shorten a list of over 40 activities (including several write-ins) to 5.  The ‘committee’ reviewed the votes and added ‘Doing Good’ to; Walking, Running, Hiking, Canoeing, and Cooking.   The shirt design; color selection, logo, etc., was done with the hope that they would be worn out and about, not just at Rotary events.
For each shirt ordered, a minimum of $8 will go to the Rotary Foundation Annual Fund.  Foundation credits will go to the club of participating Rotarians.  If a club so desires they may distribute the credits to the individual members.
