Dan Nash used his  Rotary Minute to take a brief journey back to the founding of the Rotary Foundation in this its centennial year   He reminded us that at the 1917 international convention, outgoing Rotary President Arch Klumph proposed to set up an endowment “for the purpose of doing good in the world.”  In 1928, it was renamed The Rotary Foundation, and it became a distinct entity within Rotary International.

Show you a bit about Australia 
Convince to RFE a "shot"
Share through pictures and stories the fun they all had 
It was an excellent presentation, with so much more detail and images that can be shared here. .  Great Details & Pictures 
It is an excellent PPT;   maybe we can put on our web site. ?? One tidbit   shared as we looked at a field of tea plants: Green teas and black teas come from same plants.   You figure it out!   Respectfully submitted, Dan Affeldt

Pres Kevin received a request from the Roteract club at Norwich University to assist them further with their work in Pommerin, Tanzania.
Donations have enabled the creation of a very impressive master campus plan. The next step is the building of a barn within the complex.
Students from the Roteract club will be going to Pommerin again in August 2017.
Details of their progress and their plans are contained in a PDF file available in download files on the webpage and from the spoke.

Rotary vision: To train men in every community for strong, unselfish service.
