President-Elect Norma presented an overview of the new website, and advised that both the Rotary District sites (http://rotarydistrict7450.org/ and the older website at http://www.rotary7450.org/) both link to this website. A link was also placed on the older Wix website for the club so anyone going to that page would be directed here.
Lyn Church, current Treasurer and the Rotary Foundation Chairperson for next year then presented an great overview of the Foundation and it's impact in the world. Thanks to all the club members who have donated so far. We only have a few members who still need to donate before next week so that we can be an EREY club - "Every Rotarian every year". While the Foundation asks for $100 per Rotarian, members are asked to donate whatever they feel is appropriate for them. This is a charity that the club can use to obtain funding for our service projects. For more information go to: https://www.rotary.org/about-rotary/rotary-foundation
Rotary Foundation is a Star Charity, with a Charity Navigator rating of 4, the highest rating possible. Know that your money is being used for service rather than salaries.
