Featured Speaker
 
David Buuck – TITLE, CASS Housing
 
CASS Housing exists to help answer the big question for parents with children who have developmental disabilities: What’s going to happen to my child when I can no longer care for them or when I pass away? The housing model provides an option for people with developmental disabilities to live independently. More information about the housing model can be found online at www.casshousing.org
 
 
David shared a virtual tour of one of the CASS house. This video tour can be viewed at this link:  https://vimeo.com/279903846
 
How can you help CASS?
  • Spread the word to continue growing the waiting list for residents
  • Connect CASS with people that can help
    • Trades
    • Suppliers
    • Land owners (for future expansion)
  • Brainstorming (help refine and evolve the model)
  • Donate

Price Increases
Effective July 1, 2019, annual dues will be increased by $10. Also effective July 1, 2019, the cost of lunch will also increase for the first time in nine years from $10 to $11.
 
Fundraising Update
There are two weeks left to give to the Rotary Foundation in this Rotary Year to help our club reach our annual goal of $35,000. We are currently behind the Anthony Wayne chapter in total giving this year, but if every one of our members gave $25 before the end of this month, we would surpass them and reach our chapter goal.
 
Our chapter has a history for being one of the most generous in our districts and we hope you will consider supporting the important work of Rotary International through a financial gift of support before the end of the Rotary Year on June 30.
