Throughout the months of event planning, Club and committee members were concerned about the impact of Covid-19 on the logistics of the 100 Holes event, and, especially, on the willingness and ability of gofers and sponsors to participate. As it turns out, this will be a record breaking year for 100 Holes of Golf fundraising thanks to the tremendous outpouring of support  from all of the golfers and sponsors, and from everyone who purchased a raffle ticket! THANK YOU ALL!  BRAVO to the 100 Holes Committee for their steadfast perseverance and for leading the way!

And this is no April Fool's Joke.......
With 38 members joining in, the Milford Rotary Club held its first virtual meeting on 4/1/20! It was a great opportunity for sharing experiences, ideas and jokes, and sharing lots of much needed laughter. We heard from the Covid-19 front-lines  - Thank you Judi, Jane & Paula for the updates from your healthcare facilities.
 
As one member wrote โ€“ โ€œIt was a blossom in our Spring of Social Distancing.โ€
 
The fine mastersโ€™ theme for next week is โ€œApril Fools Pranks - ones you pulled, or ones where  you were the recipient, or even just a bystander.โ€ Get ready for some laughs!
 
The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. During the past 100 years, the Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects. With your help, we can make lives better in your community and around the world.
 
Why should I donate to The Rotary Foundation? Your donation makes a difference to those who need our help most. More than 90 percent of donations go directly to supporting our service projects around the world.
 
How does The Rotary Foundation use donations? Our 35,000 clubs carry out sustainable service projects that support our six causes. With donations like yours, weโ€™ve wiped out 99.9 percent of all polio cases. Your donation also trains future peacemakers, supports clean water, and strengthens local economies.
 
What impact can one donation have? It can save a life. A child can be protected from polio with as little as 60 cents. Our partners make your donation go even further. For every $1 Rotary commits to polio eradication, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has committed $2.
 
What are the areas of the Foundationโ€™s focus? Promoting Peace, Providing Clean Water, Saving Mothers and Children, Supporting Education, Growing Local Economies, and Fighting Disease.  Even the United States has problems in all six areas of focus, the reason for Global Grants, assistance going in all directions to help promote a better world.
