Dr. George Heitsch, Superintendant of Farmington Public Schools and Diane Bauman presented details about the state of the School District and the details of the proposed Bond Issue which is to be voted on in the April Election.  Changing population and enrollment in the district have declined over the last decade and the school buildings have grown older as well.  The funding is needed to maintain the high level of education that the community has come to expect and need in order to maintain the desireable position it has enjoyed.  Funds would be used to improve the condition of the educational environment to be up to date with the electronic world we live in as well as assuring graduates of being prepared to move into current employment types that are available in the community and world today.
 
A very interesting presentation, appreciated by all in attendance.

At the Annual General Membership Meeting of the Greater Metropolitan Association of REALTORS, Lynn T. Morgan was awarded Recognition of REALTOR  Emeritus status.  Among several others who were given a similar award, the achievement of 40 years of dedicated service and to the profession of Real Estate is indicative of the commitment that Morgan carries in all of his professional and community endeavors.  This is also expressed in his involvement in Rotary, which he has also been a part of for over 40 years.  He has served in nearly all capacities available to an individual Rotarian in club leadership, district leadership and as an officer of Rotary International in 2002-2003 as District Governor, plus serving as the Rotary International President's Representative to a Rotary District in Kansas in 2013.    

 

 
 

An interesting presentation for the members present today.  The subject of contributing to the Rotary Foundation done in a couple of methods gains recognition for those contributions, both as individuals and as a club.  Our club has assured each individual be credited with contributions of $100 each year for several years.  That has met out criteria for EREY for those years.  It has also qualified each member as a sustaining member of the Rotary Foundation.  What may not have been known, is the club has also been recognized as a 100% EREY club as well as a 100% Sustaining Member Club.

Phil presented 2 Buck Chuck as a method of meeting with Governor George's announced goal of raising $225,000 for the Rotary Foundation from District 6380.  Using our club as an example, if each member would sign up for automatic payment, by credit card or bank withdrawal, monthly of $10, it would represent a contribution of $1920 for a year to the Rotary Foundation.  This would satisfy the EREY criteria and also would assure sustaining member status.  With 50 clubs in the district representing approximately 1800 Rotarians, this method would raise well over $200,000 of George's goal of $225,000 for this Rotary year.  Think about it, what a way to Light Up Rotary.
