Dave Simon receives Paul Harris +2 from Dave Ring

Making a Difference in 178 Countries with the Rotary Foundation

Last week, we had a Club Assembly meeting featuring a presentation about the Rotary International Foundation. Dave Ring, Jeff Weinrach and others explained how the money we donate is available to our club for district grants.  The NM Ramp Project has received two district grants and we are applying for the 3rd grant this year. 
Did you now that Rotary Del Sol is the top club in per capita giving to the Rotary Foundation?

Dave Simon was awarded his Paul Harris x2 for donating $2000 to the Rotary Foundation.  Want to be a Paul Harris Fellow? There are many members who will match your $500 donation with points to get you to your first Paul Harris.
If you donate $83 monthly -you'll get a Paul Harris every year.  Sign up for Rotary Direct here. (Editors note - I just did this - it was easy and took less than 5 minutes).
Ron also updated us on the Rotary Del Sol Foundation.  The grant cycle is starting, if you know of any New Mexico organizations focusing on children - send them to our website for the application and more information.

Upcoming Changes to Club Meals and Dues

The Club board has made two important changes to meal charges and club dues.  Beginning April 1, we will pay for our meals individually at club meetings (the server will bring us each a bill and take payment).  This will save our Treasurer time and make sure we are not eating (no pun intended there) excess meal costs in our budget.

We are also changing the dues structure to add $10 a month club dues.  The total does will now be $330 a year - billed quarterly ($82.50 a quarter). This would give our club money to use for non-Foundation projects, RYLA, exchange student fees, etc. 

Youth Programs News

Annunciation Catholic school will be participation in the 4 way test essay contest again this year.  We are still looking for a RYLA student to send... if you know any current high school Juniors, please have them apply.
