Presidents Message for 4/29/2015

What is Rotary and what do we do? Well the truth of the matter Rotary is a lot of things and each of us may think of it in different ways. Rotary is a Service Club, we are involved in local community Youth activities including the Dan Stover Music Competition, “RYLA” the Rotary Youth Leadership Award, the 4-Way Test Speech Competition, Interact Clubs for High School Students, plus Rotaract for Collage age and above up to about age 30. We also provide mini-grants to local community teachers and help with other literacy and teaching projects.
On general community involvement we support several local charities such as Opportunity Village a group that trains mentally challenger adults and provide work programs for them. The Salvation Army which provide a wide variety of services including food, shelter, vocational training and substance abuse recover support. The Candle Lighters a group that supports the families of children with life threating illness. Cure 4 the Kids Foundation a group that provides treatment to children with Cancer free treatment if their family is underinsured or does not have insurance at all. We also provide books free of charge annually at the Homeless Connect Community Service project which is supported by the city and county service agencies. We also are involved in the Adopt a Highway program for litter control on the Mount Charleston Road.
Then there is the international Health, Hunger and Humanities projects around the world, Group Study Exchange of adults from various countries, the Ambassadorial Scholarships for post graduate education, Polio Plus Champaign, and a host of other services offered including Peace Conferences.
The reason I bring all this up is to help our newer members realize how much our small club is involved in the community plus help them realize where their donations in support of worthwhile causes go. It takes your donated time, labor and money for all of the projects and services our club supports. Besides your direct donations to the club it is our Fundraising Raising Activities that provide the cash flow to our Foundation, so please support any and all of our efforts in raising funds to support our projects to the best of your ability.
