 Minutarian Update, Week 49
 Did you know that June is Rotary Fellowship month on the Rotary Calendar? Currently, thousands of Rotarians and their guests, including over 60 from our District are making new friends and sharing fellowship in Sydney, at the International Convention. While we all understand the costs associated with International Conventions can be a bit high, they are well worth it. Often times they are life changing as first timers are exposed to the vastness of Rotary. Next year the convention will be in Sao Paulo, then on to Seoul. Still too far, but mark your calendar now for Atlanta in 2017. It will not only be the site of the convention, but the 100th anniversary celebration of the Foundation, our Rotary Foundation.

Want to share some fellowship and stay even closer to home? Get to know your local Rotaract Club, Interact and Early Act Clubs. Share a project with them. They are always eager to participate in service, and too often we forget to invite them.
The Rotary year is winding down. Please get those Foundation donations submitted. If you are a Paul Harris Society member, don't forget to get your final contributions in as well.
Keep doing those wonderful things you do! Have a great week!
