Rotarians and guests had the pleasure of hearing from Past District Governor, Garry Hollingshead, at our Rotary meeting this past Tuesday. Garry spoke to the Club about The Rotary Foundation and how it's Mission is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education and the alleviation of poverty.

Now is the time for all of us to think about donations to The Rotary Foundation! With your help, we can make lives better in our own community and around the world.
