December 2020 Newsletter
Dear Family of Rotary,
I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving!  Even if it was smaller this year, we are all connected by our Rotary family, and I am thankful for each and every one of you.  I posted a Thanksgiving Greeting on our District Facebook page from our Interact District Governor, Ashton Bialek-Kling.  If you didn’t have a chance to see it, CLICK HEREto watch.  It’s for all of you.
Being District Governor is such a wonderful role in Rotary because I am blessed to hear about all the wonderful things you do.  The list is endless, and the projects are too many to count!  I wish there were a way that I could capture each club in a bottle and send it out to the world!  I will work on that! 😊
December is going to be a busy month for our District.  Our Interact Ambassadors program is in the final stages of sending a 45 ft. container of used wheelchairs, walkers, and mobility equipment to Mexico.  This is going to benefit rural areas and the Enchulame la Silla (Jazz my Chair) program and Global Grant.  We should all be so proud of our students.  I want to give a special thank you to American Furniture Warehouse, specifically Lauren Lukas and Brian Winn.  AFW has been so generous in serving humanity and have expended massive amounts of employee hours to work with Crutches 4 Africa and our Interact Ambassadors program.  It is almost impossible to quantify their support of our students and Rotary.  Thank you!  We will let you know once the container has shipped and provide updates throughout the year and as we begin work on our Kenya shipment.
