October 2022
Fall is in the air. As I drive around the district, I have begun to notice some leaves beginning to
change color. While I’m sad to see the warm, sunny skies of summer on their way out, I do love
the changing seasons.
I visited 12 clubs during the month of August: Howland, Sugarcreek, Perry Township, Louisville,
Bolivar-Zoar, Struthers, Poland, Canton South, North Canton, Wooster, East Liverpool, and
Youngstown. I continue to be amazed by the amount of good work that the Rotarians in our
District are doing. If you haven’t gotten me on your schedule yet, please email me! I really want
to try to get to every club before the end of October!
A few updates on my goals:
Membership: We are currently up by 12 new members as of August 31. Keep working on
caring for the members you have and bringing in some new and diverse ones!
Annual Fund: We are just barely 10% of the way to my goal of $200,000 to the annual fund at
The Rotary Foundation. Please encourage 100% participation. No gift is too small - every dollar
matters. And remember 50% of what we donate to The Rotary Foundation returns to our district
for district grants!
Polio Plus: We are only at 1% towards my goal of $25,000. Please plan an event around World
Polio Day on October 24!
Night for Ukraine: Our “Night for Ukraine” website is now live! Please check it out here. We are
currently soliciting sponsorships. Tickets are on sale now for only $60 per person. Reminder! I
am asking each club to donate or raise a minimum of $2,500 for this event. Every Club
who does so will receive a Paul Harris Fellow to give out as they see fit. My goal is to raise at
least $100,000. Proceeds from this event will be split in half: Half to directly benefit Ukraine
relief, and half will go to The Rotary Foundation.
Have an amazing September!
Yours in Rotary,
DG Michelle

The Perry Rotary Club is selling wreaths for this year’s Wreaths across America event on Saturday, December 17 of this year. Although it’s still summer and winter seems to be in the far distance, it’s time to order your wreath(s) today! Wreaths are 15.00 each. Please buy one for a relative, a friend, or a veteran’s family. Our goal is to be sure that all 2500 veterans buried at Calvary Cemetery receive a wreath upon their headstone this December.
