You may have heard that The Rotary Foundation is celebrating its 100th birthday this year.  We are planning many celebrations commemorating the occasion throughout the year.  Our largest party is just a few weeks away, Thursday, November 10th, 2016, 6:00pm at the beautiful Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan.  We are thrilled and honored that Rotary International President John Germ will be our very special guest during this gala event, which will be black-tie optional.
 
In the first phase of our efforts we sought “new” donations to The Rotary Foundation, to help build the Foundation’s future through bequests and for us to gain three-year pledges with annual gifts.  These gifts help us to plan ahead for dollars that will directly return here as District Grants in the coming years.  Rotary Foundation contributions are used to fund District and Global Grants, Vocational Training Teams (formerly GSE), Peace and Global Scholars and so much more.  We were extremely successful during this fundraising effort and exceeded our Million Dollar goal.  Thanks to many generous Rotarians, we can now open the MillionDollar Legacy Dinner celebration to any and all Rotarians, regardless of whether or not they have made contributions to The Rotary Foundation!
 
Invitations have been mailed to Club Presidents along with a club Group RSVP form, so that all members can attend!  Attached to this email you will find a copy of the invitation and an individual RSVP card if you would like to respond directly.You may have heard that The Rotary Foundation is celebrating its 100th birthday this year.  We are planning many celebrations commemorating the occasion throughout the year.  Our largest party is just a few weeks away, Thursday, November 10th, 2016, 6:00pm at the beautiful Inn at St. John’s in Plymouth, Michigan.  We are thrilled and honored that Rotary International President John Germ will be our very special guest during this gala event, which will be black-tie optional.
