no lie … it is time to register for the District Foundation Awards Banquet!

In last week’s blog, we promised to feature one or more of the district economic & community development grants and, in due course, we will do that, but …

We are only one week away from the registration deadline (November 2)  for the District Foundation Banquet at which stellar Foundation giving clubs and outstanding Foundation leaders will be recognized.  Thirty plus clubs will be receiving banner awards and a number of individuals will receive praise for their dedication to The Rotary Foundation.


The dinner is the World Famous Americana Buffet dinner with a large variety of food to satisfy individual tastes. There is also the opportunity, for those who wish to be more civilized, to purchase wine, by the glass or by the bottle, for their tables.  We need not mention the cash bar and appetizers prior to the dinner.

Attire is business formal, but you know Rotarians.  This is not a stuffy event, though.  Register your spouse while you are at it and, voila, instant date night at the Colonial Heritage Golf Club in Williamsburg. And/or register one of your younger or newer club members as your guest, so they can get a chance to see how friendly, warm, and encouraging District activities can be.

David StovallThe keynote speaker, is David Stovall, the Rotary International Director-Elect from Zone 34.  David is an aviator, long-time Rotarian, and avid funster. You will enjoy meeting him as he prepares to begin his term as a Rotary International Director in 2018. Hope he wears that hat.

All of you know the drill to register.  Pull out the credit or debit card.  Go to the dacdb.com calendar.  Scroll down to the date, November 9, and register for the Banquet by November 2nd, please.  Don’t like doing it that way, call the District Executive Secretary, Maryann Tetreault, before 12:30 a.m. any weekday morning and she will help you out.

Hope to see everyone there.  We have a lot to “crow” about.
