Seattle Rotary Service Foundation Opportunity Grants

The Seattle Rotary Service Foundation (SRSF) has announced a new pilot program called “Opportunity Grants”.  SRSF is trying to be responsive to the preferences of our member donors and the needs of our community, recognizing that sometimes our usual structure of annual grants does not make funds available when special opportunities, emergencies, and unique needs arise.
All applications must be received by SRSF by December 1, 2017.

Wider World of Rotary

By Virginia McKenzie
More than 160 members and guests of the Rotary Club of Bellingham, Washington gathered in late September to celebrate the beginning of the club’s second century of community and international service.  The evening event dignitaries included 2017-18 President Teri Treat and Rotary District 5050 Governor Lindagene Coyle.  The club was founded on September 17, 1917.  It amassed an impressive list of service projects during its first 100 years, including innumerable projects for its home community, operating kettles for the Salvation Army during the holidays, and international projects to build water wells, eradicate polio, and deliver wheelchairs.  Another celebration lunch at Bellingham’s Leopold Hotel was attended by 190 Rotarians and guests. 
Congratulations Bellingham Rotary from your parent club, Seattle #4, and from 1.2+ million Rotarians around the world.
