A new Rotary year beckons for Foundation Advocates

In less than a month the class of 2015 -2016 Foundation Advocates will complete their duties in that role. With the advent of the 2016-2017 year there will be a new Foundation Advocate structure and a newly defined role for Advocates  as Past District Governor Chuck Arnason assumes the role as the District Rotary Foundation Committee Chair.  There will be more published in the near future about the newly designed Foundation Advocate program.  For now it is provident to recognize the 2015-16 Foundation Advocates and thank them for a job well done.
