Every District 5890 Rotarian is invited to attend the new "Eat and Educate" events throughout the coming Rotary Year.  Each monthly meeting will examine a different area of The Rotary Foundation.  Starting with an overview of our Rotary Foundation and it's purpose on June 13, 2011, they will go into more detail about Grants, Fundraising, Scholars, Polio Plus, Future Vision, understanding the TRF reports, and more as the year goes on.

These meetings will be the perfect venue for new Rotarians, Club Foundation Chairs, current and in-coming Club Officers and Board Members, as well as veteran Rotarians who wish to keep up-to-date on all of the ways our Foundation has changed through the years, to have have all of their TRF questions answered.

See the list of meeting dates, times, and locations below.  Please invite your new members to come with you and distribute these dates to your members who do not receive their information by Club Runner email.
