Giving Tuesday is November 29th
We need your help, as a Rotarian, to raise funds and awareness for The Rotary Foundation this Giving Tuesday, November 29th. This global day of generosity is an opportunity for all Rotary members to make a big impact with a gift of any size to our Annual Fund-SHARE. Last year, we raised more than ever before — over US$1 million! We’re asking you to help us surpass that this year, so that we can do even more good together.

The Foundation will again recognize the top three clubs in fundraising, donor participation, and online giving. Find out which clubs made the list last year and set a giving goal for your club this year. Just make sure that the gifts are made on November 29.

Thank you for your leadership and support. We know that with your help, Giving Tuesday will be a bigger success than ever.

Robert C Wood Memorial Heroes Celebration a smashing success
We are happy to report that our Robert C Wood Memorial Heroes Celebration this past week was a very successful event for our district and for raising funds for The Rotary Foundation. In addition to honoring community heroes nominated by our Rotary Clubs with a Paul Harris Fellow recognition, we also conducted a PHF Points Balloon sale and a silent auction. The total raised through the balloons and silent auction, which was directly promised to the Foundation, was $4,050. In addition, our current financial projection shows that the event actually produced a net profit - thanks to the many sponsorships we had received this year and thanks to all the advertisers in the program book. As a result, our district will be making a total donation to the Rotary Foundation in the amount of $11,000!!
Here's a huge thank you to all the Rotary Clubs who participated and nominated community heroes, to all Rotarians who attended, to the sponsors and advertisers, to everyone who bid on auction items or bought balloons, and especially to the event organizing committee, who had worked on planning this event since July: DG Aide David Deutsch, DRFC PDG Joan Arsenault, IPDG Terry Curran, DGE Lori Karas, DGN Tom Hankard, and District Treasurer Arthur Schwartz. A big thank you also to Liz Cullen for the balloon sales, and to Bob Arsenault for assisting with the balloons as well as organizing the bell and backdrop. Last, but no least, a big thanks to all the Assistant Governors for helping with the running of the event, including setup, check-in, etc.
Lynn Club Fills Bags of Hope
On Thursday November 3rd 2022 the Rotary Club of Lynn gathered at the Old Tyme restaurant to fill Bags of Hope with personal care items. The collection of bags is for the Jasmine Grace Outreach program, the items are primarily for women.
Women who are living on the streets or in programs throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire are given Bags of Hope filled with basic items that we take for granted every day. In collaboration with programs serving women affected by trafficking, prostitution, addiction and homelessness, Bags of Hope is driven by the community. Many different groups of people are donating the items, filling the bags and handing them out! By doing this we let the women know there is a better way, they are treasured people, and that we
are here to help.
Members of the Club donated enough items to fill 40 Purple Bags of Hope. And there were enough items left over to fill four large shopping bags, which were given to the woman running the program in Lynn. The Purple Bags are sort of a trademark for the program. One of the Club members was checking out at a local store and she was asked why she was buying 5 each of a multitude of items. When she explained about the Purple bags, the cashier told her that several years ago she received one of the bags and she was most grateful for the items in them. You never know who you might be helping when participating in something like this.
