Greetings fellow Rotarians and guests!
Welcome to the
Rotary E-Club of One World!
 
 
 
In the spirit of Rotary which binds us together to serve above self for the betterment of humanity and the world, let us share the Rotary Four Way Test of the Things we think, say or do; for which in District 5240 (D5240), a fifth has been added:
 
  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concern?
  3. Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concern?
  5. Is it FUN?
 
Our Rotary Foundation Contributions
This is a report submitted by Our RF Director.
 
Here's an update as of January 31st, 2019 on our club's TRF contributions so far in RY 2018-2019: With 55 active members in January, our average per capita Annual Fund giving stood at $64.23. Our goal for the year is $5,000 and in total our contributions so far are $3,523.88 (71% of the goal).
 
Annual fund giving is important because it is used to calculate our share of District Designated Funds (DDF) that will be available to the club for projects 3 years from now. DDF make possible such worth projects as the Belize Fire Truck project planned for RY 2019-2020.
 
We will likely meet our AF giving goal when our club makes its contribution to the AF in April. But the more we give as individuals, the better as it will translate down the road into increased ability to take on our own projects and support those of other clubs.
 
In addition to our AF contributions, club members gave to Polio Plus and Other Funds earmarked for specific global grants or Areas of Focus. These contributions totaled a whopping $15,819. Unlike AF giving, these are not used to calculate DDF.
 
We currently have 65 members and many members - new and old - have not yet made a contribution in RY2018/2019. I will be sending out an email to those who have not to encourage them to do so.
Contributions to TRF are what make Rotary's world changing projects possible.
 
Next week we will come up with an even more interesting program, let us all endeavor to attend and register for our meeting.
 
Let’s all continue to BE THE INSPIRATION!!!
 
Yours in Rotary Service,
 
Amina Sammo
President 2018/2019
