November is Rotary Foundation Month

November in the Rotary calendar is Foundation month! It's a good time to reflect on the great Rotary Foundation sponsored programs we support and on how each of us can contribute to make sure these programs continue.  Thanks to everyone who participated in raising awareness on World Polio Day and other events in October, because of your efforts we contributed $89,691 to Polio Plus! The plus in Polio plus has provided $29 million in grants to clubs around the world to help with Covid 19 projects! This year we are asking each member to consider being a "Every Rotarian Every Year" which means you make a personal commitment to give to the Foundation because it is the best possible investment we can make! The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. Strong financial oversight, a stellar charity rating, and a unique funding model mean that we make the very most of your contribution. Thanks again for giving and being a part of Rotary’s life-changing work! District 6330 Foundation Chair Martin Ward and our District International Service Chair Jim Thomas are available to help clubs answer questions clubs regarding the Foundation or service projects that are available please reach out! It is a great time to be a Rotarian with our communities focused on helping others and looking for ways to have fellowship while staying within our “Stay Safe” guidelines! Helping others and fellowship, two components of every Rotary club. (copied from D6330 new letter the Bridge).

Many “Thanks” to Jim Swan for uploading these videos.  

To celebrate 100 years of service to the London community, Rotary clubs in London are donating $100,000 to install a 14-foot illuminated clock in the tower at Covent Garden Market.  

Highly visible to patrons of Budweiser Gardens and the Market, the clock will enhance the area known as Rotary Square that is home to the Rotary Skating Rink and numerous community events.

Construction will begin in late fall with the official grand opening in March 2015. The same clock builder installed the clock in the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill in Ottawa – The Verdin Company.  

The clock will be a spectacular enhancement to the existing Market structure and beautify the area while raising the profile of Rotary Square.
