The Youth Exchange committee is seeking help to update our website and keep things current. Someone out there must be good with websites...  It's not a huge commitment, but someone needs to take time to see how it works, update it and then keep dates, names, happenings current.
 
For more information on this, please contact Vera Sosnowski at veraski@yahoo.com
 
 
Foundation Minute for Week of May 29th
The end of this centennial Rotary year is near – one more month to go before we enter our next 100 years - one more month when you can continue to make a difference in the world: 
 
The Rotary Foundation is grateful for its donors, whose support makes life-changing projects possible, both locally and globally. Your gift to the Annual Fund brings about those impressive projects and grants, which are presented weekly at your meetings as a Foundation Minute or you read about them in your club or district newsletters.  If you’ve already made your gift this year, the world and your communities thank you. If not, please consider doing so at rotary.org/give before June 30 to help us reach our $300 million fundraising goal for our centennial year.  No matter how big or how small, your financial support does make a difference.   You can do it – it is as easy as “goggling” Rotary’s Contribution Form!  OOOO it will feel so good to do so.  Thank you.
