First, an update on Irma & Harvey relief

Those hurricanes just keep coming.  See this updated relief message from the District Rotary Foundation Chair, Chuck Arnason:

“With the devastating results of Hurricane Irma to the Caribbean and Florida, the District 7600 leadership has decided to send the funds collected in our current hurricane disaster relief drive to both areas. The Rotary Foundation has two Donor Advised Funds to support the hurricane relief efforts for Harvey and Irma. District 7600 funds collected through the month of September will be divided between the two areas.

Please continue to make checks payable to “Rotary 7600 DAF” and mail them to:

PDG Bill Pollard
4140 Duke of Gloucester Drive
Chesapeake, VA 23321

If you would like information about a specific Rotary district’s efforts, please contact me.”

Yours in Rotary Service, Chuck
