Yep, that's how much our club has contributed to the International Rotary Foundation in the 47 years since we were chartered.  Nice job Rotarians!  We hit this milestone last month!

Last week Don Leu and Jason Currie served as Greeters. Aaron Gunderson gave the invocation. Roxy recognized John Ryan  as the "Light Up Rotarian".  We had several announcements. Nick Jasa featured "Cowboy" Eric Dawson as the "Rotarian of the Day".      Edna Brooks-Pittman introduced our outbound exchange students who talked about themselves and the countries in which they will be studying.  The RISK bag was at $33 and Holly Hollenbeck won a free lunch.

Last week Jeff Bakewell and Julie Livingston recognized Lyle Sapp, Jim Leslie, and Tom Adams for their donations to the Rotary Foundation.
Tom Adams was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow,  which means he has donated at least $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation Annual Fund and/or Polio Plus.   Tom states that he supports the ongoing work of Rotary International because it furthers the providing of good to mankind through its various programs that benefit those who need help.
Jim Leslie was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow +2.  This means that Jim has donated at least $3,000 to TRF.
Jim states that he supports The Rotary Foundation because it embraces and underwrites the concept of “Service above Self”.  Its' record in that regard is one to be praised and emulated.
Lyle Sapp was recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow +7.   This denotes that Lyle has donated at least $8,000 to TRF.
Lyle informed me that he made his initial donation to TRF because Charlene Tierney (our long time Executive Director, and predecessor to Jennifer) asked him, and you didn’t say no to Charlene.  He has continued to give since that time because the money is used for worthy projects in the world that are being developed by Rotarians from good clubs.


Last week Terri Greenwood recognized Scott Hahn for 1 year of perfect attendance.   Congratulations!
