Generous Donors …

District 7600 has so many generous donors to The Rotary Foundation it is usually impossible to recognize them individually in District publications, though we try. Today, however, we take a moment to share the generosity of two couples from District 7600 who give, not only of their time, but also of their hearts and funds to meet needs now and in the future.

The couples are four Rotarians … Stan and Debbie Wall of the Colonial Heights club and Rudy and Catherine Garcia of the Fluvanna club.  These four Rotarians had the honor of being recognized at the District Conference by  Samuel Owori, the Rotary International President’s Representative to our conference and a Past Rotary International Director. Though it is no official yet, it is expected that he will be our Rotary International President in the 2018-2019 Rotary year.  Mr. Owori was assisted in his duties on this occasion by the District Rotary Foundation Committee Chair and Past District Governor, Chuck Arnason.

Stan and Debbie Wall received recognitions  for having received Major Donor Level 2 and Bequest Society Level 4. They have created named funds and have designated 50% of their funds to Literacy, 25% to Water & Sanitation, and 25% to the World Fund.  Stan and Debbie are both past presidents of their club and are active at Zone 33-34. They also serve in current District 7600 capacities, Stan as an Assistant Governor for Area 7 and Debbie is doing double duty as the District Communications Officer and District Secretary.

Rudy and Catherine Garcia are very active Rotarians.  Rudy is a past president of his

club and Catherine is the President-Elect.  Rudy is the Development Chair for the District Rotary Foundation Committee and Catherine is the Fluvanna club’s Interact sponsor at Fork Union Military Academy.  The Garcias have reached Major Donor status and Bequest Society Level 2. They created a named fund and designated their funds for the District’s Annual Fund – Share.

There will be more about these dedicated district couples and about the particulars of designation at various levels of giving in the near future, but if you have a chance before then to reach out to Stan, Debbie, Rudy, or Catherine, please give them a ‘Well-done’.
