Opportunity to Participate in Fox River Clean Up Day
In collaboration with the Friends of the Fox River, our District 6440 is encouraging all area environmental lead members and clubs along the Fox River watershed to consider participating in this event. The more clubs and Rotarians participating, the greater our impact will be, and the resulting public image boost of Rotarians as community partners and environmental advocates.
 
Help clean up the Fox River on Saturday, September 19th with other Rotarians. Click here for more information. 
Martha Celebrates 21 Years in Club
I was going through old files, and found these articles that you may or may not be interested in reading regarding why I am a Rotarian.  We are all facing challenges now keeping connected and energized about our volunteer activities when we are restricted so much by the COVID-19 virus.  Just a reminder to myself and maybe to others about why we are committed to Rotary, an amazing international service organization.
 
Here is the LINK to Martha Weiss in Up Front in Rotary Magazine 2006
 
And the LINK to Why I Am a Rotarian in District 6440 Newsletter 2009
 
If anyone would like to write why they are a Rotarian and send it to me, I would be glad to include it in the newsletter.
