OUR NEXT MEETING
"Crimpson Cup Coffee Story"
Greg Ubert
Founder & President

August 29, 2016

Greg Ubert was not happy. The recent Harvard graduate had everything the world expected him to want. A high profile first job in Chicago. A handsome salary. A bright future in computer software. A big city at his feet. Yet just when it seemed he should be on top of the world, he had come to the stinging realization that he just could not fall in love with computer software. What’s more, many of his colleagues were similarly uninspired.

Was this his future?

That’s why, at the tender age of 23, Greg Ubert had his first aha moment and made a decision that would change his life. He decided to find a career that inspired and energized him. Then he acted on it.

STATEMENT FROM CLUB BOARD
On August 17, 2016 the Club Board met for its regularly scheduled monthly meeting.  An item was brought to our attention and the Board voted to provide our members with the following information.

Several weeks ago a number of members of Columbus Rotary received in the mail a copy of the publication "Visions: Charitable Estate & Financial Planning Ideas from The Rotary (International) Foundation."

This publication presented claimed tax benefits of making charitable gifts from both traditional or Roth Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs).

Unfortunately, the information regarding the tax benefits of charitable gifts from Roth IRAs was fundamentally wrong.



As the publication states in its fine print: "For assistance in planning charitable gifts with tax and other financial implications, the services of appropriate advisors should be obtained."  We recommend that Columbus Rotary members not rely on this publication of The Rotary (International) Foundation with respect to gifts from Roth IRAs.

We do encourage our members to consider gifts of appreciated property and gifts from traditional IRAs to both The Columbus Rotary Foundation and The Rotary Foundation.  
MEMBER GUEST GOLF
GOOOOOOAAAAAALLLLL!
 On August 10, 2016 we delivered 140 backpacks to Franklin County Children Services for their foster program.  We received the following email from FCCS.

"We were able to give out the backpacks on Saturday and they were a HUGE hit!  The kids loved them and were so proud to have them.  Thank you so much!!"


Thanks to everyone that made this first time project such a success.
