The Rotary Foundation

Latest Updates from Chair Cliff Kuhlman

As of January 1, 2022, another large donation lifted our PolioPlus giving to $2,460.00 at Rotary Midyear, 82 percent of Club President Ann Rusk’s goal for Rotary Year 2021-2022.

Annual Fund contributions were $4,830.00 at the end of December, only 32 percent of President Ann’s annual goal for 2021-2022.

All-Time Giving reached $1,178,872 from 383 Paul Harris Fellows over the past 40 years.

2022 Track Meet

The 72nd Annual Rotary Track Meet will be held on Apr 20. 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: Feb1, 2022

When: February 1 from 5pm – 7pm

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.
