A message from DG Debbie High

“June is The Rotary Foundation’s 100th Anniversary”

Rotary All Stars – this month we continue our celebration of The Rotary Foundation’s 100th Anniversary at the Rotary International Convention in Atlanta, Georgia.
Rotary All Stars – together -  our Rotarians, clubs and district have far exceeded our total combined club goal contributions to End Polio Now! Thank you and congratulations. 
The Rotary Year 2016-2017 combined club / district goal for the Annual Fund is $265,000.
We have NOT met this goal yet - but together we will if we ACT soon. 
We will set a new High on ANNUAL FUND contributions with your help. 
High Notes from the First Dude

Yesterday (Friday, May 26th) Debbie and I were honored to be part of our Rotary Family to celebrate the life of Past District Governor Everett “Ev” Driskill. PDG Ev spent most of his life in Minnesota building and maintaining a grocery store chain. One of his sons described his Dad’s usual 80-hour work week was only part of his life as he wasn’t satisfied with just dominating in his business, but also strived to be active in “doing good”.

When and Where Do Clubs Send Their Rotary Foundation Annual Giving
From Rotary International to District Rotary Foundation Chair
Hi Ellison,
Please encourage donors to send in their contributions per the instructions on the contribution forms and encourage them to make gifts online. Sending donations directly to staff slows down the processing of contributions. If a club is sending in one check that needs to be credited to multiple donors, club officers should make sure to include the multiple donor form to ensure the gifts are credited appropriately.
For your information, here are the year-end contribution deadline dates. I will be sending these out to all district leaders today or tomorrow. Last year, I also sent these to club leaders and plan to do so again this year.
Let me know if you have any questions.
