The complete October Foundation First Newsletter is here
For 100 years, The Rotary Foundation has been the charity of choice for Rotarians all over the globe. Why? Because your gifts to the Foundation change lives.
  • World Polio Day is Oct. 24, and we  encourage you to plan an event to increase awareness of Polio eradication.
  • November is Foundation Month. You will have an opportunity to hear Foundation Trustee Mary Beth Growney Selene speak about the Rotary Foundation at a noon event in Cedar Rapids on Monday, Nov. 6.
  • Students in an after-school program sponsored by the Fort Dodge School District are benefiting from seven iPads donated by the Fort Dodge Daybreak Rotary Club with help from a District 5970 grant.
    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.
