June 6, 2019      Be An Inspiration!


May 30 program:

The international, non-partisan citizens Climate Action Committee for Global Change is working at the local, state and national levels to impose solutions that will combat the effects of climate change due to increased greenhouse gases. The Delaware group, under Beth Chajes,is working on a solution that will drive large scale change quickly, use incentives that support choices, and be healthy for the planet and the economy. Their proposed solution is to impose a fee on carbon content at the source, return 100% net revenue to households as a dividend, have a carbon border adjustment (allows added price to imports), and limit regulatory adjustments. The benefits will reduce carbon emissions by 40% in the first 12 years, deliver dividends to individuals, create a healthier environment, and produce more jobs.

Outstanding Invoice?

Last chance to get your invoice paid before the end of the Rotary year. Shawn needs to have all funds paid shortly in order to close the books for the Rotary year. Also, any additional donations to The Rotary Foundation should be made BEFORE June 29 to get credit for this year.


FYI. There are still 11 advertisers that have not paid for their advertisements in the 2019 Report to the Community. See Cindi Viviano for  the current list. If any of those are your ads, PLEASE get payment arranged ASAP.


Close to being a Paul Harris Fellow, or one step higher?

See Fred Dawson if you want to become a Paul Harris Fellow or make an additional contribution to move one step up before this Rotary year ends.


What’s a Paul Harris Fellow, you ask?

We all make voluntary contributions to The Rotary Foundation with our quarterly invoices. When you reach $1,000 cumulative, you will be a Paul Harris Fellow. It can be done in one contribution or over a number of years. Ask Fred.


Board Meeting last week

There were no major actions taken at the Board meeting held on May 30. Unlike in past years, we have no left-over funds to be distributed to non-profits this year.


JA Coordinator Needed

At a previous meeting we discussed having a volunteer program with JA’s Biztown to help students understand what Rotary is about and how community service fits into our daily lives. A club coordinator is needed. Are you interested? See Robin for more details.


Meal packets distributed

Rise Against Hunger has delivered our 10,000 meals in a shipping container holding 285,120 meals to their partner Family Legacy Missions in Zambia.  Since 2005, volunteers like us have helped to distribute more than 455 million meals worldwide!


Rotary Foundation gets highest rating – again!

Again, The Rotary Foundation (TRF) has received the highest possible score from Charity Navigator, an independent evaluator of charities in the U.S. For the 11th  straight year, TRF has earned the maximum 100 points for both demonstrating strong financial health and commitment to accountability and transparency. Also, TRF received its 11th straight 4-star rating. Only 1% of the charities the organization evaluates have received at least 11 consecutive 4-star evaluations, setting TRF apart from its peers and demonstrates to the public its trustworthiness.
