 April Foundation Greeting from Michelle Bell
I must say I hope the snow is done for the season. Spring brings new beginnings and continued traditions. We have just finished the Grant Management Seminars and are preparing for a great District Conference and Foundation Duck Race!  Find the Duck Race flyer here.
 
We are also looking for Silent and Live Auction items for the conference. It’s important you let us know what you’re bringing so we can prepare bid sheets in advance of the auction.
Find more auction info here.
 
All of this fundraising goes to fund programs of The Rotary Foundation. The rest of this newsletter highlights the great work our District is doing in the world. I couldn’t be more proud to serve you as you do this great work!

Rotary International is launching a campaign called, “Countdown to History.”  Goals were set and pledges were made, and we can’t do it without you, as Rotarians. We are asking for Rotarians across District 5970 to give a minimum of $40 to End Polio Now. This will get our District to the goal set by Rotary International.
