Another great meeting this morning. Assistant Governor Bill Tobin was very busy. Not only did he officially introduced Valentine, our Rotary Exchange Student, but he also presided over the meeting in the absence of President John Knight and was our featured program.  Bill's presentation was about “Every Rotarian Every Year,” which is a Rotary Foundation program that asks every Rotarian to contribute to the RI Foundation each Rotary Year.
When a Rotarian contributes $100.00 or more each year to the Foundation’s Annual Fund (AF), he or she becomes a Foundation “SUSTAINING MEMBER.” Every member in our club is a sustaining member.  Contributions enable Rotarians to work together across oceans and vast terrain to find innovative solutions to complex problems that plague villagers in remote areas, as well as city dwellers.

There are thousands of charitable organizations working throughout the world that make a positive impact on people in need. However, the Rotary Foundation is the only charitable organization funded by contributions from Rotarians, for programs and projects identified by Rotarians, and administered by Rotarians at the project site.
