Minutarian Update, Week 44

Rotarians of 6970,   

Our Gainesville Sunrise Club, has been creating a butterfly garden at the Ronald McDonald House, since 2008. It is now complete. What a great example of what Rotary Clubs can do, and the impact they have in their community. With the assistance of a small district grant, funds from the club, other local contributors, in kind work and donated materials, the project is now complete. It is a beautiful park where family members can take a break from hospital visits and treatments, impacting their ill child. Visit our district website, and see the great six foot Rotary Wheel brickwork, embedded on the parks paver pathway.    

Two reminders, sign up for District Conference. Don't wait, don't be left out. Secondly, last call for District Grant applications, due April 30th. 

I can happily report the results are in, 13 of our Interact Clubs, and 6 of our Rotaract Clubs have received Zone Award recognition. Of the 14 total Districts in our Zone, our Interact Clubs made up 25% of all those recognized. 6970 Rotaract Clubs were outstanding as well comprising 18% of the total. Congrats to those clubs, their advisors and club sponsors. 

Keep doing those wonderful things you do! Have a great week!
