Students with the Lakewood Service Club will helping with the Lakewood PTA Family Night on Monday, February 27th at Freddy's on West Adams from 5:00 - 8:00.  A portion of all sales will go towards helping the Lakewood Elementary PTA.  The Service Club members will be helping with handing out orders at the window, calling names for the orders, and greeting and serving customers.  With our Rotary Club sponsoring the Lakewood Service Club, Rotarians are encouraged to eat at the restaurant on Feb. 27th between 5-8 to interact with the Service Club members and show them your support.  A flyer will need to be presented when ordering for the students to get credit for your purchase.  The flyers will be handed out at the Thursday Rotary meetings over the coming weeks.   
Jonathan Tingle, our Global Scholar, sent us the attached pictures.  The photo of the Potluck has almost all of the students in the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine Epidemiology course. Jonathan brought Macaroni and Cheese, which was a hit. The other photo is Jonathan and two friends at the Christmas concert at which the King’s College Choir performed.

Dear Rotary Club President,
By now you hopefully know of the special arrangement by which a portion of the revenue from selected eBay Live Auctions comes to Rotary. What you may not know, however, is that recently the Board of Directors of Rotary International decided to donate this revenue from eBay to The Rotary Foundation to fund Global Grant projects in the Area of Focus Economic and Community Development.
Below is the list of upcoming eBay Live Auctions in December that will benefit Rotary. We encourage you to browse the catalog of items available for bid and to register for those auctions that are of interest to you. The more items sold, the more Rotary benefits!

Lakewood Service Club Christmas Party









The Rotary Foundation, the charitable arm of Rotary—a global network of volunteers committed to improving lives and communities around the world—has been named the 2016 Outstanding Foundation by the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP).

From its first contribution of $26.50 almost a century ago, The Rotary Foundation’s assets have grown to approximately $1 billion, and more than $3 billion have been spent on projects that promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, support education, save mothers and children, and grow local economies.

The Rotary Foundation’s top priority is the global eradication of polio. Rotary launched its PolioPlus program in 1985, and in 1988 became a leading partner in the Global Polio Eradication Initiative. Since then, Rotary has contributed more than $1.6 billion and countless volunteer hours to protect more than two billion children in 122 countries from this paralyzing disease. The Foundation’s advocacy efforts also have resulted in another $9 billion from world governments and foundations, increasing its impact.

To mark the Foundation’s centennial year, Rotary members aim to raise $300 million by July 2017. The Rotary Foundation will receive its award at AFP’s 2017 International Fundraising Conference in San Francisco, April 30 – May 2, 2017.
This is the final week of the Rotary Foundation November Matching Campaign.  The club will match up to $250.00 of your contribution. Cash, check, credit cards, adding it to your quarterly billing are all acceptable.  Contributions will be accepted thru our meeting on Thursday 12/01/16.  As we have heard over the past few weeks, the Rotary Foundation supports many great causes either on an international or local level.  Your contribution enables the Rotary Foundation to continue its work.  Be generous!
