CART Buckets Challenge

CART Total is now at $4,224.23 for our Rotary Year.
Our Challenge Goal for the end of this Rotary year is $5,000.
On May 9, CART awarded 6 research grants for a total of $700,000.
It is apparent we are participating in something very big!

On May 8, we collected $167 (about $1.40 per member).
If we donate at least $167 at each of our remaining 5 meetings 
in May and June, we will reach our goal of $5,000 by the End of the Year.

Our Challenge Days were great:  Aug 5 = $661;    March 6 = $1,142.
So. let’s make a big splash this Monday with coins and paper money!

Flags of Rotary Clubs Worldwide

We can now be more aware of the International nature of Rotary, thanks to President BC’s goal of having international flags on our tables to represent the many countries where Rotary has clubs.

Sets of 7 international flags, 96 countries,
will be on our lunch tables.  And this is not all of the countries!
