Changes in Foundation Recognition Banners
Our primary topic today potentially affects every club in our district. The club banners for giving have been restructured, with possibly the biggest change being the merging of the EREY (Every Rotarian Every Year) and the Sustaining Member recognition banner. The District Foundation Committee Chair, Jim Probsdorfer, has communicated this information already to Club Foundation Chairs and to Foundation advocates, but it is of import to every member of every club. Many clubs and donors set benchmarks for their giving based on this banner recognition structure.
Foundation Advocate Dennis Wool of The Historic Triangle Club was kind enough to provide some comment to the Advocate Chair that it might have been helpful to have it take effect in the next Rotary year, rather than be a fiat accompli for the current year, but that change is change whenever it occurs.

And don’t forget the baseball …
July 7 (Squirrels) and July 27 (Tides) are the dates for our End Polio Now Baseball games. Each club has a point of contact through which club members can order tickets for themselves, families, and friends. The first game on July 7 at the Richmond Diamond Stadium is set to be a high achiever. The goal is to sell 1000 tickets. More questions … give Stan Wall an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tickets for the Tides game $10 bucks each with $2 of each ticket donated by the Squirrels to End Polio Now. 2016 Rotary Night Flyer Richmond Flying Squirrels_2. Stan asks that Rotarians and guests were a red tee shirt or an End Polio Now shirt if they have one.
