Be there … Richmond … The Diamond!
Yes, we were rained out in May. The whole idea had been to have our Richmond area game earlier in the year to beat the heat of July. Well, we did, but what had not been anticipated was the rain, not a polite, respectful rain, but a deluge of a rain. The Squirrels, rightfully, called the game and helped us reschedule for the June 14th date.
District Secretary Debbie Wall and Past Assistant Governor Stan Wall are recognized as the End Polio Now Rotary Night at the Diamond organizers. These two amazing Colonial Heights Rotarians have full corporate careers, but also make the time to be active regional and District Rotary activities. This last weekend they were front and center at the Zone 33 Training in Greensboro, North Carolina. A real perk of that event was the opportunity to meet the Rotary International President Elect (RIPE) Barry Rassin and his lovely wife, Esther.
On June 14th they’ll put their red End Polio Now tee shirts back on and greet all comers in the name of Rotary. Check in with your club Rotary Night representative to get updated on the plan to replace your previous tickets or buy tickets if you hadn’t already.
Tickets are $10, $2 of which goes to Rotary’s End Polio Now … but wait, there’s more. The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is matching that $2 by a 2:1 ratio meaning that your ticket will actually result in $6 being donated to End Polio Now in the name of your very own club. How cool is that?
