116 Years!  That's a lot of candles


Recently, 6690 Rotarians should  have received an email detailing a PHF District 6690 matching points program.  There message; "We’re excited to announce that we are once again conducting a February Matching Points Campaign to increase your points towards your next Paul Harris Fellow recognition or to donate them to another individual.  The District will match your contributions to The Rotary Foundation Annual Fund (SHARE) or Polio Fund through February 28th with up to 1,000 points (on a one-point-for-each-one-dollar basis). 

Here’s How it Works"

Soon spring will be here, and fate willing, we can resume in-person meetings.  While Rotary is a service organization, let’s face it, we like each other’s company.

Do YOU know a person who could benefit from the Rotary experience, the service, the networking, the comradery, the information?  Do YOU know of a person whose skills and talents would benefit our Club, our mission?  We bet you do!
The Membership Committee is asking EACH member to give us one name (with company, contact info—phone/email) of someone YOU are willing to contact, and/or we contact mentioning your name. Members generally come through other members, and no one forgets the person who nominated/sponsored them.
Let us ALL spring into action.  Your nominee with thank you!
