Our CR Foundation is now led by Sandy Knoesel as President.  Sandy is a Past President of CRC and also serving as an Assistant Governor in our District 6690 to several clubs.
 
Thank you Bill and Sandy.

ROTARY PHISHING BEWARE
Rotary.org

Dear Rotarian,

Rotary recently learned that scammers have created multiple communication and social media accounts that impersonate RI President Barry Rassin, RI President-elect Mark Maloney, General Secretary John Hewko and perhaps other Rotary leaders. The communication accounts include or involve email, WhatsApp and Viber.  The social media accounts have been on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.
