Last year, the Rotary Foundation awarded more than 1190 global grants for large-scale, sustainable projects; 470 district grants and raised an additional $15 million for the disaster response fund for Ukraine.  Our Club has a tradition of being an Every Rotarian, Every Year Club and I think we can be assured our contributions are being effectively deployed. 
In keeping with our membership goals of spreading the word about our Club and expansion of our membership, please invite someone you think should be a Rotarian to the Oct. 18th meeting with Rep. Fred Upton as our speaker.  This will be a great opportunity to showcase our informative programs.
