Did you join Rotary to SERVE? Serving means more than just giving money.
Our District Grant this year includes giving $6,000 in campership money to Easterseals for youth and young adults who want to attend a week of summer camp at Camp Fairlee.

E-clubs accepting members

Did you know you are not restricted to belonging to only our Rotary club? Any Rotarian  can also be a member of any e-club.E-Clubs are time-efficient, typically more affordable and extremely flexible. Membership is not limited to a local area. For example, the E-Club of Arizona has had members from all over the world including Mexico, France, Minnesota, Arizona, California to name a few. Joining our E-Club is a fun way to immediately connect with those Club members who live in faraway areas in different countries, with different cultures, who share your passion for doing good.

By joining an E-Club, you can attend the weekly Rotary meeting on any day, and at any time of your choice. You’ll make immediate and valuable connections with community leaders around the world, in places with big challenges.

As a member of an E-Club, you will network with other professionals, use your current skills and learn new ones. Mentorship is one of the greatest benefits of Rotary s you will interact with people like Bill Gates, and leaders around the globe. You can choose your degree of involvement in creating projects or in helping run your Club. You can even learn new skills, such as public relations, social media, or fundraising. You’ll spend time at your computer or smartphone connected with new friends and community movers and shakers, worldwide.

Find a list of e-clubs at rotary.org.

WELCOME OUR NEWEST MEMBER, LYNN MEY!

Disaster Relief – Ukraine

WOW! Our membership voted to donate $10,000 to Disaster Aid USA for Ukraine relief. The money will be specifically earmarked for Ukraine and is being spent on specific immediate needs of the people, both those who are refugees into Poland and those still remaining in Ukraine.

Robin just received news that the 100 stuffed animals she made have been shipped by Disaster Aid USA to a Rotary club in Warsaw for distribution to refugee children and those in orphanages.

If you want to make a personal donation, you can do through The Rotary Foundation at rotary.org under the link specifically for Ukraine disaster. OR you can donate through Disaster Aid USA, run by Rotarians with headquarters in our district. This is a Rotary sponsored organization. They are in direct contact with Disaster Aid International and their contacts in Poland and Ukraine to determine immediate needs. You can donate through their website at disasteraidusa.org.
