Rotary & Veterans:
International Fellowship of Military Veterans:
Did you know there is an International Fellowship of Rotarian Military Veterans? It is now an official Rotary Fellowship. One may join even if not a veteran, but simply one who is supportive of those in service. The annual cost is $10 and a life membership is $100. For more information you may visit the Rotarian Veterans site or their facebook page.
Wreaths Across America:
This nonprofit is not Rotary affiliated but our District Newsletter Editor, JoAnn Meaker, is active in this organization which urges involvement in recognizing the sacrifices of our military dead, by remembering those who lie beneath the stones. Learn more about how you can be involved by visiting Wreaths Across America.
JoAnn is a published author and historian and has raised awareness of this grassroots effort to honor the country’s fallen.
We hope everyone’s Memorial Day Weekend has been enjoyable, memorable, and respectful. Now this writer is going to go hug her favorite veteran.
