It was great having Art and Leslie Erasmus join us for our Fireside on Friday.  I know of no Rotarians who can tell a better story about the Rotary Foundation that they do.  Art is a fountain of knowledge about our Foundation.  Not wanting to bog us down with details, he shared the reasons for his personal commitment, also highlighting the accomplishments of Polio Plus.  Of course, Lesley brought the personal touch to the story, the joy of seeing water spouting from the water well, the children’s love generously given, and more. 

Eleanor Kendell started off the evening with a PowerPoint slide show tied into Rotary’s history.  This involved a good deal of research for Rotary historical fact of interest.  There is a vast amount of information on Rotary’s History website.  Art also suggested our checking out the Rotary International website for information about Foundation.
