Although most of the Rotary Dictionaries were distributed earlier in the 2015-2016 school year, as reported earlier, Linda and the teachers had suggested waiting until the end of the school year so each child had a book of their own for the summer. A story is always read to every class at the start of their library time so there was the opportunity to discuss the Dictionary and each student was shown where to write their name on the Rotary bookplate.

Emails were sent to all members on Jan 8, providing new givers the opportunity to have a TRF donation of $25 added to each quarterly dues billing from Dave Diggle. Let’s help President Mario increase our club’s giving amount beginning this first quarter of 2016.
Furthermore, what is donated to TRF in 2016 will be matched by Sushi Gawande’s Club Recognition Points to double your money! Thus, $100 given this year will give you $200 toward the $1000 Paul Harris Fellow recognition!
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your sign up commitment or see Dave Diggle or Sarah Baker at our Monday Meeting.

Past-President Jackie Collins obtained her bachelors degree at Ohio University's Fall Commencement Ceremony held on Dec. 12, 2015 at the Convocation Center. She is pictured with husband Cam and son CJ. Her dad surreptitiously brought Jackie's mom who had open heart surgery three weeks ago. It was a heart warming rendezvous that touched all of us who witnessed Jackie's tears of surprise and joy.

At an Athens Rotary Foundation Board meeting on July 17th the seven members attending the Board meeting (Diane McVey, David Diggle, Sheila Mark, Channing McAllister, Jerry Mollica, John Miller, and Karen Harvey) listened to an excellent presentation by Rotarian Bruce Wentworth and Jane Redfern, Executive Director of The Dairy Barn, concerning the Barn’s efforts to raise $1,500,000. Their $50,000.00 request was part of the Barn’s Building for a Second Century Capital Campaign.
The Second Century Project will significantly alter the main entrance area of the Barn; create a new Gallery Shop where visitors will have enhanced access to the works of local and/or exhibiting artists; create a new multipurpose room; add a catering kitchen; provide enhanced space for child and adult art-related activities; and create an endowment fund to help sustain the Barn over the next century.
In voting to provide $50,000.00 over a five-year period, the Rotary Foundation joined the O’Bleness Foundation ($100,000) and the State of Ohio’s Art Fund ($200,000), and many individuals and businesses/corporations in supporting this project.
Karen Harvey, President
