This week at Rotary - 2 for 1 Special
Another 2-for-1 special tonight! 

First, we'll be joined by our area's 4-way speech contestants Kishan Patel and Madison Carberry.  
Their speeches will be judged and hopefully move them on to regional and then district competitions.

After the 4-way speeches, Michele Barrett from Colebrookdale Railroad will join us by Zoom to tell us more about the recently revealed "Ride the Rails" railbike experience and update us on other educational programs. 
The Rail Bike Explorers program will provide a unique chance for people of all ages and abilities to appreciate the natural beauty of the region. 
You can see more about the railbike experience by visiting
This week's meeting is a hybrid event - with a chance to have dinner with your associates at Brookside Country Club at 6:00 or watch the guest speakers via Zoom meeting at 7:00 pm.

Rotary Foundation Annual Fund - SHARE
Help support the Rotary Foundation Annual Fund-SHARE Fund by sponsoring me as I complete the last 110 miles of my Appalachian Trail adventure so that we can fund even more of your club's projects!  
As many of you know, I've been section hiking the nearly 2200 mile Appalachian Trail for the past 15 years and have completed over 2050 miles. Last spring, the pandemic forced me to delay completing the trail for a year, but this upcoming Spring, I plan to hike the last 110 miles in North Carolina and Georgia. 
The Rotary Foundation has enabled our district’s 46 clubs to work on many local and global projects through district and global grants. Thanks to your generosity, each year, our district receives over $100,000 in District Designated Funds for these grants. During the past few years, nearly every club in our district has received one or more grants to help their local communities and also to do amazing global projects.
You can sponsor me for any amount.  As an added incentive, our District Foundation team has created the TRIPLE 110 challenge!
  1. I complete the last 110 miles of the Appalachian trail.  (30 miles to go!)
  2. You support the Annual Fund by contributing $110 or more to the Annual Fund SHARE through the link below.
  3. The district matches your donation with 110 additional Paul Harris points (in addition to your donation) to get you closer to your next Paul Harris Fellow recognition level.
Please consider sponsoring me with a donation to the Rotary Foundation Annual Fund through the following link:
Thank you!
