The Rotary Foundation

May 31 Update from Chair Cliff Kuhlman

As of May 31, 2022, the Rotary Club of Grants Pass had recorded $17,186 in contributions received from donors to The Rotary Foundation Annual Fund, well over Club President Ann’s goal of $15,000 for the Rotary Year 2021-2022, which will end June 30. As of May 31, the Annual Fund was 115 percent of goal.

PolioPlus giving exceeded President Ann’s modest goal of $3,000 with donations of $5,485 by May 31, 182.8 percent of the annual goal originally set for it.

Club membership continues at 119 active men and women Rotarians, third largest of clubs in District 5110. There are now 66 clubs in the District.

2022 Track Meet

The 72nd Annual Rotary Track Meet will be held on Apr 30. Hopefully, this will be a return to the original format. We will be hoping for full support of our club members.

Tim Quinlan and Marty Bauer will be co-chairing the event. We will hold our first committee meeting on Thursday, January 20 at 5PM at Tim’s house located at 381 Espey Road, Grants Pass. The meeting will be held on his outside patio and his wife will prepare some snacks for the attendees (she has experience as they have had several other committee meetings during the virus here-please let him know of any dietary restrictions, so she can prepare accordingly). We will discuss the various tasks that will need to be accomplished and set up subcommittees to handle these tasks. All club members who wish to join the committee are welcome, please RSVP to Tim by January 13 so we can plan accordingly.

Date: June 10, 2022

When: June 10 at 5:30 PM.

Where: Dennis Webber’s home at 1120 NW Starlite Place

Who: All Red Badge members and spouses or special “others” and any interested “seasoned” Rotarian

What: To chat about the meaning of Rotary and why it is an important organization in the world

Why: Because we want to be sure all new members get to ask whatever questions they have and to get to know each other much better.
