The Rotary Club of La Grange earned two recognition banners from Rotary International for the local clubs support of The Rotary Foundation in 2016-17. JoAnn Ayres, club president that year, was presented them on Dec. 13, 2017, by Rich Kaye, Rotary district foundation chair. The "100% Giving" banner was for every club member contributing last year to The Rotary Foundation; the larger "Every Rotarian Every Year" banner recognized that every club member's contribution was $100 or more. During the past 100 years, the foundation has spent over $3 billion on humanitarian projects around the world.
