Former D.G. Karen Oakes - Rotary Foundation Speaker - June 4th Meeting
A BIG reminder that this week Former District Governor Karen Oakes will be our Thursday Lunch Speaker.
Karen will be informing us on the inner workings of The Rotary International Foundation!
The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary, we tap into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact

GREAT IDEAS COME FROM CONVERSATION! Some of my best ideas came to light over lunch. The main idea of Rotary is to get local leaders together to talk about and realize a problem and plan to solve the problem. We need you a community leader sitting at our table. Come out enjoy a great meal, talk about our community and the world. Believe there is Good in the World and Be The Good in The World.
HAMILTON OF THE WORLDS BOOK.
In addition to our yearly Dinner- Auction event, our main tool to earn funds which will support many community projects, assistance to school meal program’s and many other programs that benefit those that require community assistance, a second program has been the sale of Entertainment books.
This year this has been replaced with a project initiated by a Hamilton, New Zealand Rotary Club; “Hamiltons of the world” book.Jeff Schall wrote the section on our Hamilton, which includes many facts and bits of information about our Hamilton that are possibly new to many.Commissions earned from the books sales will benefit our community fund.
The book is very suitable as a gift item from Hamiltonians or Hamilton businesses for any occasion or as a display in business waiting areas. Contact Paul Crossman to purchase your copies today for only $35. Bulk Sales discounts available 905-512-2451 firstname.lastname@example.org
THE STORY OF HAMILTONS ACROSS FIVE CONTINENTS
The inspiration for a book about Hamiltons of the World came about because Hamilton East Rotary Club needed a major fundraiser and I felt there had to be a way of utilising the other Hamilton Rotary Clubs around the world, especially as Hamilton, New Zealand is about to celebrate the 150th anniversary of its formation and current name. http://www.hamiltonsoftheworld.com/book/ Tim Brooker
