A New Year's Resolution You Can Keep (for a lifetime!)
As we approach the end of 2019 and start a new year and a new decade, it’s a great time to reflect on your commitment to OUR Rotary Foundation and create your Rotary legacy. In March of 2019, DG Joan & DGE Betsy, with the blessing of then DG Bob, announced our district’s Million Dollar Journey to support the Rotary Foundation.
Now you might be asking, “what is a Million Dollar Journey?” The idea originated in District 5110 in Oregon in 2014 with the goal to raise a minimum of $1 Million in new donations for the programs of The Rotary Foundation with minimum donations of $10,000 from each donor in cash or a bequest. Our journey started in March 2019 and will conclude on October 15, 2020. We will celebrate our Million Dollar Journey on Thursday, October 15, 2020 by unveiling the exact amount of money we’ve raised for the Rotary Foundation during this time period. Our guest speaker for the evening is Past RI President and Trustee Chair (2020-21) Ravi Ravindran.
