1 WEEK LEFT

The Rotary year is coming to a close and I want to thank you all for a great year in District 6690. When you add up all the projects we’ve done, all the causes we’ve supported and all the problems we’ve tackled, it really equals something very special.

President Barry Rassin has asked that we put out one last request for donationsCurrent projections estimate that our fundraising efforts will fall short of our $50 million annual goal. If this occurs, we will miss out on the full 2:1 match from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

In addition, we are extremely close to a all-time District 6690 record for the Annual Fund.

I would like to encourage anyone who has not yet made a contribution or can make an additional contribution to The Rotary Foundation to do so this week. All contributions for the 2018-2019 year have to be written and postmarked by June 29th.

To make it easy, you can sign into your My Rotary account and give on-line. If you would like to mail a contribution, you can do so on the attached TRF Contribution Form. You can either send a check or pay with a credit card with this form.

I have also attached a listing of the clubs and their ID numbers for your reference. You member ID can be found on DACdb, My Rotary or on the label of your Rotary magazine.

If you need any help whatsoever, please reach out to your Club President, Club Foundation Chair, Assistant Governor or me. I would be happy to help to help facilitate your contribution.

Again, thank you for the great work you do for others. Each and every one of you should beproud to be a RotarianI know I am!


All the best! Be the Inspiration!


Yours in Rotary,

   

Craig Maxey. District Governor
