A great fundraiser event that you don't even have to leave your home for! For every $10.00 donation you will have a chance to win this beautiful framed painting by Rotarian George Lewis, the Waterman. George spoke at our recent District Conference. 

This painting is only available during Foundation Month, with funds to be donated to the Rotary Foundation to assist with future projects.  The winner will also become a Paul Harris Fellow.  You must pay by credit card on the district website, www.rotary7040.com check out Events, so that we get your name in the draw.  You can enter more than once and you will get an individual Foundation credit for your donation.

Winner will be drawn on November 29 - you do not need to be present! We even have a Rotaractor as one of our contributors now. The November 30 district bulletin will announce the winner.
 
 

 
 
Rotary Friendship Exchange (RFE) is when a group of Rotarians from one Rotary district in the word travel to another for fun and fellowship.  It is usually reciprocal. Rotary Friendship Exchange (RFE) is a great way to travel. Learn about how the locals live in their land and make lifelong friends. Discover cultures and communities in a unique way. And of course enjoy Rotary fellowship.  Often you share Rotary projects and ideas.
 
Do you like to travel? Enjoy meeting Rotarians from other countries? Want to get more out of touring? Want to learn more about Rotary in other regions? A Rotary Friendship Exchange (RFE) program may be for you.
 
Exchange Participants
Only Rotarians and immediate family members (partner and children) are eligible for the visitor exchange. For the team exchange, only Rotarians and their partners are eligible. For either type of exchange, both districts should agree on the participants in advance.
 
 
 
 
WEEK 20 ROTARY’S POLIO CHALLENGE
Rotary International and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation announced an extension of their existing fundraising partnership that could generate up to US$525 million in new money for polio eradication as the global effort to end this crippling disease enters its critical endgame phase.
 
Under the new agreement, announced before an audience of more than 20,000 Rotary members from 160 countries gathered in Lisbon for the humanitarian group’s annual convention, the Gates Foundation will match 2 for 1 every new dollar Rotary commits to polio eradication up to $35 million per year through 2018!
 
THANK YOU FOR SUPPORTING ROTARY AND LEVERAGING YOUR GENEROSITY!
