We had a very nice turnout this week considering who our guest speaker was. We had 8 Rotarian’s and 2 guests. It is always a pleasure and inspiration when I hear Carole speak. With the many obstacles she has had in her life and she still has such a positive attitude. She is always looking to help the less fortunate instead of looking the other way. Carole is on the Paul Harris Foundation committee and is trying to encourage all to participate in donating to the foundation. She wants everyone to think how they can give whether it can be just donating the change you save or doing a weekly contribution. Any donation can help so many people. There are several ways to donate. You have the option to do a weekly contribution or yearly. You can decide how much and how often. There will be additional information provided in our future meetings. Tom Riley and Kathy Castro donate $2.00 per week. It’s very simple and you do not even notice it coming out of your pay check each week once it starts.
Kristine David our visiting District Governor Elect presented Carole with the 1st pin she has given out for her year “be a gift to the world” and she gave it to Carole because she is a gift to this world.
