Remember - when signing up to click on the name of your favorite Rotary Club in the information page! All the money donated in the name of that Club (minus about 3% transaction fee by the website for processing the funds) will go back to that Club to buy gift certificates from local restaurants to then be given to local Covid-19 heroes of  the Club's choice.  Donors can even suggest names of local heroes for a Club to consider!

 

The Masters and The British Open may have been canceled this year, but a premier Rotary sponsored golf tournament is rolling forward – the 26th annual Milford Rotary 100 Holes Of Golf In One Day Tournament.
 
We are not unmindful of the fact that, at this writing, the country, and the world, is in the midst of a horrifying pandemic and that our country is in the throes of an economic upheaval. This is precisely why we have chosen to roll forward and why we are reaching out for your help. Milford Rotarians are in this for the long haul!
 
In spite and in light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, the Milford Rotary Club has chosen to carry-on with the 100 Holes of Golf Tournament.  Each year this event raises considerable funds that are distributed to local, regional and international community and non-profit organizations, and are used to provide $30,000 in scholarships to area students. In just the past two decades, the Milford Rotary Club has donated well over $1,200,000.00 in charitable grants and scholarships. Over two-thirds of that sum has been raised by the 100 Holes of Golf In One Day Tournament.
 
Given the tremendous impact that the Covid-19 crisis is having on all of our hometowns, we anticipate that community needs for assistance will be far greater in the coming year than ever before. And we expect to be called on to do more – perhaps at unprecedented levels to help meet needs directly related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Proceeds from the 100 Holes Tournament will help us meet our commitment to the communities we serve and will support COVID-19 relief efforts. The Rotary motto is "Service Above Self" and  the Milford Rotary Club is committed to meeting this challenge, but we need your help and the help of other civic-minded residents and businesses.
 
For now we are still on for June 26, 2020 at the Amherst Country Club.  If possible, we want to take advantage of the longer daylight and cooler weather of early summer. Precautions will be taken to keep golfers and volunteers safe. We are monitoring directives from Governor Sununu and will re-evaluate the plans at the end of April, but this tournament will still take place in some manner shape or form this year. And the raffle will still occur!!
 
How can you help? Become a sponsor, come play golf, and/or buy a raffle ticket! We have around 50 golfers already committed to playing! For more information, please visit www.golf100holes.com.
 
Raffle tickets are ONLY $20 each, with 10 chances to win on each ticket -
1st Prize is $5,000   
2nd Prize is $2,000    
3rd Prize is $1,250 
4th Prize is $1,000
5th Prize is $750
And 5 other prizes for $500 each
 
Each raffle ticket has six valuable coupons on it, including a $20 off coupon to anyone of the three Giorgio's restaurant - which itself will pay back the price of the ticket!
 
Raffle tickets can be purchased online at  https://golf100holes.com/online-raffle-ticket-payment/  When purchasing a ticket online, you will be asked to provide the name of the “Ticket Seller”.  Enter the name of any Milford Rotarian you know or please feel free to enter our Club President's name (Janet Langdell) as the "Ticket Seller".  After the transaction, your “Ticket Seller” will make arrangements to get your tickets and coupons to you.

"Rotarians across the United States and Canada are gearing up to volunteer and encourage volunteers via our social,church and business networks. Those who are in good health and low risk can train to join the front line workers while those who need to stay further from the fray can train to help via telehealth support."

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 – “It was a blossom in our Spring of Social Distancing.”
 
The fine masters’ theme for next week is “April Fools Pranks - ones you pulled, or ones where  you were the recipient, or even just a bystander.” Get ready for some laughs!
 
Update 3/18/20: The 100 Holes Committee had a remote chat today thanks to the assistance of Paul Wydra. 
 
Golfers - As of today we have 50 golfers signed up but there’s still room for more!
 
Sponsors – The committee really needs the help of the Club.  We have many different levels available  including: $10,000 Event Sponsor, $2,500 Tournament Sponsor, $1,500 Bridge Sponsor, $1,000 19th Hole Closest  to the Pin Sponsor, $1,000 20th Hole Longest Putt Sponsor, $750 Photo Cart Sponsor, $500 Hole Sponsors and $500 Pro Shop Credits Sponsors.  If you, or your business, would like to help us with any of these levels please contact Doug Knott doug@knottslandcare.com or call/text 603-689-5030
 
Tickets – The final draft of the ticket is going to the printers tomorrow (3/19)!  The committee will work out, and share with the Club, the logistics of getting tickets in the hands of all golfers and Club members soon!
 
 
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, we’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 Foundation’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.
