‘Leadership is not communicating what we need. Leadership is communicating what we can contribute.’
The Rotary Foundation does enormous good throughout the world. It transforms gifts into service projects that change lives both close to home and around the world. During the past one hundred years, the Rotary Foundation has spent $3 billion on life-changing sustainable projects.
Currently Diamond Creek Rotary members are working together to ensure that our members are able to contribute to the Rotary Foundation.
Thanks to Greg Paull for the donation of delicious honey from his hives. Auctioning these jars of honey at our meeting last week raised almost $400, which will all go to the Rotary Foundation. Almost everyone in the room left the meeting carrying their special honey pot! There are still a few jars left, so if you weren’t at last week’s meeting or you have already consumed your jar, come along to this week’s meeting ready to donate.
Gary Hennessy is producing some Rotary pens, which members will be able to sell. These pens will carry the Rotary logo and be available soon. Gary plans on bringing the prototype to this week’s meeting so that we can check them out.
Honey and pens may seem like small offerings but they are a great way to for the club to make some extra cash that we can donate to the Rotary Foundation. If you have an idea for a small fundraising project that the club can complete this Rotary year, please let me know or bring it up for discussion at our meeting.
After all, as the song says: ‘From little things, big things grow.’
