Please consider donating today online to the Annual Fund of The Rotary Foundation on myrotary.org and have your individual donation up to $500 matched with Recognition Points. If you give $100 more than last year, that $100 will be matched 2:1 with Recognition Points. You can just see that Paul Harris Fellow Recognition around the bend, can’t you? Or maybe that next Paul Harris Fellow + level.
Remember you must already have an account set up at myrotary.org as it takes a couple of days for a new account to become active.
An aside-COVID is no match for Rotary
Rotary is beating Polio. We can beat COVID. Take care, be safe!

By now the whole world must know that the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, many countries, companies, nonprofits, and nongovernmental organizations have pledged up to $1.2 billion to continue the work of eradicating the transmission of polio.
This pledge was unveiled in Atlanta and there is live video of the announcement on the Facebook pages of Rudy Lee Garcia, our district development chair, and on the Rotary District 7600 page. Enjoy.
Upon their return please commend our hard -working district Rotarians who served in Atlanta
