BELL RINGERS ROCKED
From the Salvation Army...

Thank you
to the Rotarians that rang the bell for The Salvation Army at this busy time of year.  
 
Your kettles collected a total of $1,867.23 in donations in two hours at the Blue Jackets Game...WOW!!!
 
For the hungry, homeless and unemployed, every drop in the bucket counts!  Thanks to bell ringers like you, over 10,000 children will wake up on Christmas morning to find new toys under their tree and all the fixings for a holiday meal.  The Salvation Army will serve over 123,000 people through our many assistant programs throughout the year.
 
On behalf of The Salvation Army, I hope you have a blessed holiday and thank you again for your gift of time and support to help those in need.
ANNUAL SERVICES CAMPAIGN
 

LAST CALL MOST IMPORTANT
I am writing to you today to make one last plea for your assistance in Columbus Rotary's Annual Campaign.  Each year we rely upon this campaign as the bedrock for all of the service projects, activities and scholarships that are planned for the next Rotary year.  

We've yet to reach our goal of $70,000 this year and that is because just over half of our members have provided support to the campaign.  As a Rotarian, supporting us with your time is just as important as supporting us with your treasure.  I am asking that you join me in making a donation that will help a student, build a baseball diamond, empower women in Africa, to name but a few of our projects.  

As we end the year, please consider helping others who are less fortunate.  Every dollar counts and no donation is either too large nor too small.  

To join me and your other friends in Columbus Rotary you can,
- Donate online at www.columbusrotary.org on the right side of the page, 
- Swipe your card at our Dec 19 meeting, or
- Email Scott with your intent to participate.   

With your help we can continue our 104 years of service to Central Ohio and our International partners.
