A message from President Derek:
 
During the 2018-2019 Rotary year, the fifth Monday meeting date in a month will become a “Merry Monday”. On a Merry Monday, the lunch meeting will be replaced by a social "happy hour-and-a-half" at Maceli’s from 5pm-6:30pm featuring appetizers and beverages. The first Merry Monday of the Rotary year will occur this coming Monday, July 30, 2018 from 5pm-6:30pm at Maceli’s. We will not meet at noon on that date. This gathering is for club members and prospective members.  You do not need to RSVP and there is no separate charge for Merry Monday attendance; the lunch meal fee for that day will cover it.
 
In the most recent Rotary International survey of over 28,000 members, “fun, social activities” were ranked as important in an ideal organization. Please join us at Maceli's on Monday, July 30, 2018 at 5pm. (NOT 12pm) for this fun and social happy hour.

Besides this being our club's centennial year, we are also celebrating the 100th birthday of The Rotary Foundation.  Created in 1917 with the $26.50 left over after paying the costs of that year's International Convention, the Foundation received just under $269 million in 2014-15 from Rotarians around the world.  Cumulatively The Rotary Foundation has advanced $1.2 billion toward the eradication of polio and $2.2 billion to support Rotary programs of humanitarian service.  Because of generous and sustained Rotarian donations, The Foundation fulfills its mission "to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty".  Rotarians are "Doing Good in the World", through our Rotary Foundation.
