Rotary District Newsletter- August 2011

Governor Bill’s Thoughts….

Hello fellow District 7430 Rotarians, each month I will send a short paragraph of our district happenings to be included in your club newsletter.  If you want more information, please see our District Newsletter at www.rotarydistrict7430.org.

My wife and I have begun visiting our 7430 clubs and are learning about the fantastic things you are doing.  By mentioning a few, I hope all of you will join me in “Catching the Rotary Pride”!   We  recognized seven Conrad Weiser members who have a combined 275 years of Service above Self, enjoyed an evening  picnic at the Lehigh Gap Nature Center in a pavilion built and furnished by the Slatington club, congratulated two scholarship recipients at the Hamburg club and accepted a $2000 donation to the Polio Plus Fund from the Harleysville club.  WOW!

Now to important dates for your calendars….First is the opportunity to apply for a District Simplified Grant (this is a portion of the returned Foundation funds from Rotary year 2008-9).  Please see the application criteria in the District Website Foundation tab.  The applications are due on October 7thSecondly, clubs have the opportunity to apply for up to $250 from the District Marketing/Membership/PR pool of $5000.  Please mark your calendars for Rotary Leadership Institute on September 17th which is an important venue for club leadership and newer members.  Your Foundation Chair is encouraged to attend the Foundation Seminar on October 1s t which will give important information for funding.

Have a GREAT month ahead and share your pride of Rotary with others!
