Presidents Message June 18, 2014

In this week’s message I would like to talk about the legacy we can leave behind after we depart this world. But before I start on that topic let me thank those of you who were able to attend the Memorial Service my family and I had for my Mother this past Saturday. I would also like to thank the club members who donated to the Rotary Polio Plus campaign and other charities in her name, through your generosity other people will benefit from her passing. Mother was always amazed at how few people knew about Rotary and the services and programs it provides around the world and to our local community. But she was always ready to tell them about all that she knew about Rotary from her attending all of the events and our board meetings at my house; she was always a cheer leader for Rotary.

Now let’s talk about the legacy you leave behind after we pass on, it’s as easy as falling off a log to do. Rotary has several programs for giving from your estate, your will or your life insurance policy. The first program is becoming a Benefactor and this only requires you to pledge to give Rotary $1,000.00 after your death. The pledge is normally through your life insurance policy by listing them as a recipient, or it can be done by listing them in your will also. As a benefactor you will receive a pair of what is called wing, this is a Blue & Gold ribbon looking item to be worn with your Rotary pin. The second program is becoming a Bequest Society Member an in this program you are pledging a minimum of $10,000.00 to the Rotary Foundation. For you pledge you will receive a special Paul Harris Pin with a diamond in it for each $25,000.00 you donate [pledge], to the Foundation through your gift. The pledges are through your life insurance policy or a recipient in your will. None of us will ever miss the money after we are gone and in most cases neither will our children, but it can do so much good for others. See your Foundation Chairperson for help in signing up for either of these programs.
