Minutarian Update, Week 46

Did you know that under the leadership of Past District Governor Ken Smallwood, our District led the way with the Paul Harris Society over ten years ago. This year, is the first that the Society based on giving of $1,000 or more per year, is being recognized as an official program, by The Rotary Foundation. We are making all those that have and are currently participating as well as those signing up this year charter members. All those past and new members, please get this years funds in soon. Only two months to go.

You may have received an email recently, requesting you to take a Rotary survey. They were sent out by Past District Governor Marcy Ullom. Marcy is in South Florida, and is doing this on behalf of all eight Florida Districts. Please take the three or four minutes required, to complete the survey. It's online, it's simple, it's fast!

Next Friday is District Conference. I look forward to seeing many of you there. We will start at 10:00AM and wrap it up in the evening.
There are still some seats available. Please sign up!
Keep doing those wonderful things you do! Have a great week!
