Governor’s Column (October 2019)
As every Rotarian knows, November is Foundation month.  The November theme is designed to remind us of the importance of Rotarian’s support of our Foundation.  Worldwide Rotarian contributions go to the Foundation's Annual Programs Fund, which provides grants and awards through Foundation programs. It also funds the Permanent Fund, an endowment from which only the earnings are spent in support of Foundation programs, ensuring the long-term viability of the Foundation. Every dollar contributed by Rotarians funds humanitarian and educational programs and program operations. Clubs and districts apply for and receive Foundation grants to carry out worthy projects worldwide.  Your generous supports our focus in our 6 areas:
Disease and its prevention
Education and Literacy
Growing local economies
Mothers and Children
Peace and world Conflict
Water and Sanitation
Thank you for your amazing support of our common desire to help make our world a safer, happier and wealthier place to year.  
Have fun with the wine Auction. Please remember to fill out the donation form and return it with your check to Lauri Coy at the Canton Office. We will proof read, tally and then process to the foundation.
This is a very special month for a second reason.  Thanksgiving will fall on November 28th.    What a special holiday.  This occasion causes us to pause and think about how blessed we are.   When we join Rotary, we join a very powerful Family.  Our Rotary Family accepts you for who you are.  They will cheer you on in the good times and support through you through the bad times.  Our Rotary Family, working in unison, does change the world.  I am so grateful for each and everyone of you.  Every club is so special and impactful in the world, their communities and to each other.  Remember to the world you are one person, but to one person you may be the world.
