The Tri-Town RotaNews - August 3, 2005

 

File Photo by Joe Long

President Peter dinged the bell at 12:17 PM and Joe Carroll provided the blessing using Rotary's Four Way Test. "Of the things we think, say or do:

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?"

Gary Sinclair's daughter Elizabeth was his guest today

PDG Dave Drislane tells us about the five “Whys of Rotary Service”.

Sure we all know about the Foundation, but do we realize how great it really is? The Foundation provides a means by which we as individuals can touch people's lives in a positive way, all around the globe. Wells providing clean water in Africa, polio vaccine ensuring a life free of the dreaded disease for thousands in India, wheelchairs enabling the crippled to be mobile in China, medical equipment distributed to a hospital in Yugoslavia. Just a few ways we as Rotarians truly make a difference.

Every dollar infused into the Foundation goes to where it is most needed. Dollars must be spent and used by Rotarians.

Annual Giving programs are the backbone that supports RF. Be proud as Rotarians that we share in all that the Foundation allows Rotarians all over the world to accomplish great deeds. The program surely saves and changes lives.

Think about making your contribution early this year, make a difference.
