In 2016-17, The Rotary Foundation turns 100. That's a century of helping Rotary members change lives and improve communities all over the world.

Throughout the year we're posting excerpts from "Doing Good in the World: The Inspiring Story of The Rotary Foundation's First 100 Years." You can purchase the book at shop.rotary.org.

To learn more about the Foundation's centennial and find tips and resources for celebrating, visit www.rotary.org/foundation100.

Rotarians we are just $4,000 from our goal of $45,000 to purchase a new van for the Schatz Branch of the Boys and Girls Club. The online link for donations is https://www.commitchange.com/wa/tacoma/boys-and-girls-clubs-of-south-puget-sound/campaigns/rotaryvan and I encourage you to share it on social media and via email to help us close the final gap and get that van on the way!
 
On Oct. 25 Gary Klein and I presented to the Rotary Club of Tacoma North about the project. We will continue to hit the road to raise the last few thousand dollars, but if you have anyone who wants to help us get there please let us know!
Tacoma #8 has challenged us! The Rotary Club of Tacoma #8 has challenged our club to raise $10,000 in our raise the paddle event at the mini-golf fundraiser on Oct. 21 and they will match our funds raised (up to $10K)! I am certain we can meet their challenge! Please let those you invite to our mini-golf event that this is an opportunity to make a new van for enrichment, intramural sports, and higher education tours a reality for the Henry Schatz Branch of the Boys and Girls Clubs in South Puget Sound (Tacoma)! Let's do this!

November is Rotary Foundation month and a great opportunity to consider joining the movement. The Rotary Foundation transforms your gifts into projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary, they tap into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money, and expertise into our priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.

Strong financial oversight, a stellar charity rating, and a unique funding model mean that they make the very most of your contribution. Give and become a part of Rotary‚Äôs life-changing work!

Governor's Message
Rotary Serving Humanity is the theme that Rotary International President John Germ has chosen for this Rotary year. I very much like the theme because it speaks to everything we do in Rotary. Each club is very different in their focus and projects, but everything we do serves humanity in one way or another.
The July Rotary Club of Tacoma South Board meeting will take place on July 18th at NOON at the Blazing Onion, located at 4502 S Steele St #1510, Tacoma, WA 98409, near the Tacoma Mall. Our meeting agenda will include discussion of our upcoming events, review of planned activities, and preparation for the mini-golf tournament. All members are welcome to join us!
In our first meeting of the 2016-2017 year we designed four fantastic fellowship events to ensure our club stays engaged and connected with each other. The first event, a Seahawks Viewing Party, will take place on July 25th at Brink and Sadler. More details to come.
 
Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in the club's first fellowship-focused meeting. It was fun to see everyone engaging in conversation with each other. We were a lively bunch!

District Conference is in Olympia 24-25 June.  Join Governor Rose Bowman for this great event, and help celebrate with Joanne Croghan as she starts her year as Governor! Registration and hotel information can be found here:
