Our Foundation is celebrating its 100th birthday this year. During this year-long celebration, we want to make sure all Rotarians realize that our Foundation is the life blood of Rotary.

 
Most of you have been contributors to the Foundation since you joined this organization. Your support helps Rotary promote peace, fight disease, provide clean water, protect the health of mothers and children, support education and grow local economies in our District and throughout the world. I would now like you to consider making our Foundation one of your prime charities and join the Paul Harris Society.
 
Currently there are 32 members of the Society in District 7470.  We are looking for others who wish to join this elite group of Rotarians.  A Society member is one who gives to our Foundation at the level of $1,000 per year. By committing yourself to an $85 per month, tax exempt gift you too will become a member.  
 
 
To join the Paul Harris Society contact me at jra188@aol.com or 201-213-6382 and I will add your name to the list of Society members. You can then meet your commitment by contributing online at www.rotary.org/contribute  or by sending a check through our District Annual Fund Chair, Roland Basinski (201-454-0501; roland@empbenguy.com ).
 
I would like to thank you for your consideration, and for your continued support of Rotary.
 
Sincerely,
 
Jim Allison, PDG
Paul Harris Society Chair
