Random Acts of Kindness Day Feb.  17th

Imagine 70 Rotary Clubs, 40 (or more) Interact Clubs, and our Rotaract Club all performing Random Acts of Kindness on the same day – Saturday, February 17, 2018. That’s National Random Acts of Kindness Day and District 6440 will be on board. Post photos of your kind acts on your personal and club Facebook pages with #District6440KindAct.

President Ryan will be distributing the Random Acts of Kindness cards at our meeting on Thursday.  Start thinking of your random acts now!

Donations Needed for  Ak Tenamit
 
Dan Wolf and Stephen Legge received the following message from  Steve Dudenhoefer re Ak Tenamit needs.   Donations can be given to either Dan or Stephen. Thank you !
"It’d be great if you guys could put the word out for collecting pencils, pens, white-board markers, regular and permanent markers, tylenol, antibiotic cream, cold meds, allergy meds, and band-aids for our students - All are in very short supply 🙂"
District Vocational Scholarship Applications are Available
District 6440 has announced that the 2018-19  Vocational Scholarship Application and Information forms are available.  15 Scholarships will be awarded in May and paid in July during 2017-18 Rotary Year.  All applications are due by April 6th.  District Interviews will be conducted the first or second weekend in May.  Awards will be announced within the week following the interviews and the funds will be available to the award winners starting July 1 2018.  The 6440 district website is not currently updated with the application, but please contact Martha if you have an interested candidate.  Martha will be sending the information and applications to both BG High School and Stevenson High School and will assist in the interviews, etc.  Last year our candidate was chosen!
