Latest News and Announcements

The annual Rotary Foundation Celebration was held November 8, 2014 at the historic Biltmore Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. District Rotarians stepped back in time for a 1920s-themed evening. Chaired by Westchester Rotarian Cozette Vergari, the Rotary Foundation Celebration included both a silent and live auction to benefit The Rotary Foundation, dinner, 1920s entertainment and a special address by Terence Winter, creater of the HBO drama, "Boardwalk Empire". He was honored for the show's portrayal of a child diagnosed with polio. To see photos from the event, click here.
 

 
The Global Grant Scholar Program is designed to award college graduate students $30,000 to study abroad. Our hope is to provide an enriching experience of study and humanitarian service, encouraging students to adopt Rotary International's motto of "Service Above Self" as a lifestyle. Applications are due February 13, 2015. For full details and application, visit our Global Grant Scholar page.
 

 
 
All grant applications requiring an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) must be submitted on or before November 30, 2014. Any questions should be directed to District Rotary Foundation Chair David Moyers.
 

 
The season of celebrations is beginning! We look forward to gathering together for The Rotary Foundation Celebration, and later in the month with our families for Thanksgiving. Check out the newsletter. Learn about the wonderful work taking place around the District and beyond. At any time or day, there is a Rotary service project taking place somewhere close to home or around the world. There are no borders, there is no calendar, when it comes to “Service Above Self”. There is only the opportunity to serve, and for us to grasp. Enjoy the November Newsletter!
