Dear Rotarians and Guests,
 
The time is certainly speeding by as we now enter the third month of our Rotary year 2015 - 2016.  September is celebrated throughout the world of Rotary as Basic Education and Literacy Month.  So conveniently done; to tie in with the new school year generally celebrated in many countries.  We look forward to the launch of our Signature Project – Butterfly Storybook in this month and the wonderful stories that will be written by our young authors throughout District 7020 over the next couple months.  The volunteer judges look forward to reading each and everyone of them
 
We look forward to a month of activities coordinated by Rtn. Keturah as she takes the lead at our first meeting in the month.  We ask that you all continue to make an effort to support and participate throughout the month with your presence at our meetings.
 
We continue to remember our Dominican sisters and brothers whose lives were lost during the passage of TS Erika and those who were otherwise displaced.  Our prayers are with the families and friends at this time.   
 
Stories
Just past the anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and heading into the month of literacy and basic education, this video seems appropriate.
 
 
 
As last month was about membership, see what you have learned by this little test, the first of two.

WHAT IS THE ANNUAL FUND

Through our annual Sustaining Member contributions of $100 or more, the Rotary E-Club of the Caribbean, 7020 has been a 100% EREY contributor since we were chartered in 2013.  Let us continue to support The Rotary Foundation (TRF) through our annual donations.
 
We have been and continue to “Be a gift to the World”.
