Past District Governor Art Erasmus joined us for our November 5th meeting as we began Rotary Foundation Month.  We learned about ways to make a difference through the Rotary Foundation.  



We learned that Rotary International serves over 33, 000 Rotary clubs Worldwide. Rotary Foundation serves by giving, collecting and dispersing funds in six areas to serve the world. They are: Promoting Peace, Fighting Disease, Providing clean water, Saving mothers and children, Supporting education and Growing local economies.  We also enjoyed hearing about a Bee Project, Bee Keeping in Ethiopia. This is being championed by Art with the support of  his club, the Rotary Club of Terrace.  The goal is to receive financial support by partnering with other clubs in our District in an application tied into this project for a Rotary Foundation grant.
