Dear Rotarians,
 

Despite the inclement weather last Saturday spirits were high at the District Conference in Clear Lake!  I am thankful for all the opportunities the conference provides to highlight the work of the Rotary Foundation, and to provide much-needed training to help your clubs strengthen your support for the Foundation.  Lots of excitement is being generated in our District for Global and District Grants.  That’s great!  Our District Foundation Team is here to help you turn that excitement into reality.
