Rotary is never at low tide. Club Foundation Chairs, Foundation Advocates, and Area Governors have been working with their clubs’ Presidents and Presidents-Elect to achieve 2014-15 giving goals and to set, then document, 2015-16 giving goals.
This report published last week shows which clubs had entered those goals. It would be very helpful if the Foundation Advocates would follow up with their clubs who need help. You might remind clubs that, while the President-Elect is involved in setting Foundation giving goals those leaders in designated positions such as Secretary, Executive Secretary, Membership Chair, and Club Foundation Chair can actually input the goals into Rotary Club Central.

Personal: Congratulations to Bob and I who are celebrating our 46th wedding anniversary today (June 8th). As Indiana Jones said in Raiders of the Lost Ark … ‘It’s not the years … it’s the miles.”
