Our Rotary year is now begun, and Officers are busy working with their respective Rotary Club boards, and Rotarians are engaged in Club Projects.
As each of you guide your clubs this year remember good planning and execution yields great results. That is especially true in Rotary Foundation giving. 
We have been blessed with generous contributions to The Rotary Foundation in past years and under DG Carolyn Franks we again exceeded goals.
Our year end numbers are 
Annual F- $206,516.39
Per/cap- $143.61
PolioP- $119,969.63
Other- $2,350.00
Total- $328,836.02
It was a great year!  But, this next year we can do even better; it all begins with your understanding of how our Rotary Foundation works  and the good we can accomplish from the newest club member to the Club President.  We need more clubs to commit to being 100% Giving Clubs and more Rotarians to aspire to being Paul Harris Society members.
Changing the world begins with each of us and everyone of us truly can make a difference.
