Rotary International’s focus this month is The Rotary Foundation.  Our Every Rotarian Every Year fundraising campaign is almost over, and our winners will be announced in a few days.  At the end of September, our District ranked 39th in the world for overall giving $203,991. Our District ranked 9th in the world for per capita giving to the Annual Fund.  Thank you, fellow Rotarians, for your wonderful and ongoing generosity in supporting our Rotary Foundation’s great work!

Congratulations to our District Rotarian of the Month for October, Richard Swart with the Rotary Club of San Francisco Chinatown.

November is the time to be thankful, a time to remember and to embrace those who enrich our lives.  I’m thankful for a lot of things, but I’m most thankful for all the Rotary service you provide to your community and the world. May this year’s Thanksgiving be a Celebration to remember.
