Subsequently there is no meeting the next morning (Friday Jan. 25th). Please come and participate in this endeavor. If it is popular it could become a recurring departure from our normal routine.

The check presentation below was done at our Jan 11th meeting:












Rotarians, please post things to these sites, and when doing so to "hash tag" #RACINEROTARY.  This will connect all of our posts to each other.





 If you have speaker duty please let me know two weeks in advance who your speaker is or what your program is so I can get the info to the newsletter. If you have any difficulty finding a speaker please attempt to reach out to other club members for assistance and let Claire Weslaski or Tom Leuenberger know what the program will be.

Racine Founders Rotary Blood Drive -  Thursday January 17th, 2019. THIS WEEK!!!!!

Every pint of blood donated helps to save at least three lives..............


On Thursday, January 17th from 3:30 to 7:30 at the Racine Donor Center, 1120 Sunnyslope Drive, the Racine Founders Rotary Club will host a life-saving blood drive.

There is always a great need for blood products, but especially so around the holidays, and during the summer months. Much of the blood donated in Wisconsin comes from school based mobile drives, and there are not enough alternative sources to maintain proper inventory levels, hence the blood drive we host in June.

This blood drive is open to anyone with a pint of blood to spare, and that's about 90% of the population! Rotarian's, friends, family, co-workers, employees, neighbors, anyone with that spare pint.


Please share this opportunity with all- 

Signing-up is as easy as calling: Phil Hagemann at 262-939-1900, or emailing: philhagemann7@gmail.com: or going online to:

www.bcw.edu/racinefounders. If you can't make it during the drive you can schedule your own donation by calling: 877-232-4376 or online at: www.bcw.edu.
