Happy November my Rotary Family!
We have had a whirlwind start to this Rotary year with so many events, projects and social activities! I’ve officially completed my visits of our 55 Rotary Clubs, and have met with 2 of our 6 Rotaract Clubs I am so grateful to all of you for your participation and hospitality as I’ve made my way through the District, it is an experience I will never forget and will cherish forever.
During October we celebrated World Polio Day in a big way and had our 1st Annual Run, Walk or Ride to End Polio Now! It was a super successful day and we all had so much fun together as we raised awareness of Rotary’s efforts to eradicate Polio.
November brings us into Rotary International’s Foundation Month. The RI Foundation is a 4-Star organization awarded by Charity Navigator, and is a great support to our clubs when participating in District and Global Grants. Donations made to the RI Foundation by our members and District to the Annual Fund are returned to us at 50% three years later. That is how we were able to provide $55,500 in District Grants this year to our clubs and $80,000 in District Global Grant funds to support the Thailand Water project.
I encourage all of our members and clubs to give to the Annual Fund as you consider your year-end donations. The lives you can touch, of people you may never meet, are incredible and so rewarding. Go to Rotary.org – Donate, to give. Thank you in advance for your generosity.
November is also our District Wide Blood Drive. Giving blood saves lives, and I expect each one of us knows someone who has been touched by this. Please register at your local blood center, provide the name of your Rotary Club and share the gift of life by donating during our “A Pint for a Paul” event.
This is also the month of Thanksgiving, one of my favorite holidays. Thanksgiving is a time of reflection and an opportunity for us to be grateful for everything and everyone we have in our lives. I am grateful every day, and a part of that is Rotary and how each of you recognize your blessings and are willing to give of yourself to help others.
Again, thank you for all that you do. You make me proud to say I am a Rotarian. Enjoy your Thanksgiving!
Yours in Rotary Service,
Becky Moser, DG
