Rotary Foundation Announcement
This year marks the 100th Anniversary of The Rotary Foundation.  The Foundation was formed in 1917 arising from Rotarian Arch Klumph’s idea to form an endowment fund dedicated to “doing good in the world”.
Bethlehem Morning Star has always been a supporter of The Rotary Foundation.  Over the past two years, our club has been one of the few clubs within the District to achieve 100% participation, as all club members have made a contribution to the Foundation each year.
The Foundation Committee asks that each Rotarian consider a minimum gift of $100 to The Rotary Foundation this year.  If you are unable to commit to $100, you may want to consider a contribution of $26.50 which was the original Foundation contribution. Any amount will be appreciated, and count towards 100% participation.
As the Rotary year ends on June 30, the Foundation Committee is asking that all contributions be made by June 1.  You can make your contribution by check or at the $2/week table when you sign in.  Checks should be made payable to “Rotary Foundation”, and given to Tom Hartzell at a weekly meeting.  Checks can also be mailed to Tom Hartzell, 1341 Biafore Avenue, Bethlehem, PA 18017.
If you are not sure if you have made a contribution during this Rotary year, you can check with Tom or Sue Burnett.
Why should you make a contribution to Rotary Foundation?  Because you are a Rotarian! 
Thanks to everyone in Bethlehem Morning Star for their continued support of Rotary Foundation.
