Help Fight Polio & Provide Relief from Hurricane Harvey 2
As you might recall last year a group of Rotarians and Non-Rotarians, rode our motorcycles 850 miles around our district and raised $10,500 for Polio Plus.  This year we are doing it again, but we need your help to surpass last years results.  This year half of the proceeds will go to help with Hurricane Harvey relief.  There are several ways your club and individual members can help.  
BE A RIDER, sign up to ride the event.  Fill out the attached participant form and send it back to me with your registration fee.  You are also encouraged to raise funs You can ride the full ride starting in Laredo, or you can jump on the ride as we make our way around the district.  Either way we need your form and waiver.
BE A DONOR, fill out a donor form and agree to support our cause, as a club or individuals.
BE A SPONSOR, fill out the sponsor form and send us your forms and logo so we can put you on the t-shirt and shout out on social media.
BE ON THE ROUTE,  come out to the route to see us and help us create a photo opp at the different stops.
I hope you will spread the word to your clubs and get behind this FUNdraiser.  Thank you.
Best Regards

The 911 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit

The 911 Never Forget Mobile Exhibit is a tribute to all those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001, including, of course, the 343 members of the FDNY who made the ultimate sacrifice. The high-tech, 53-foot tractor-trailer, which transforms into a 1,000-square-foot exhibit, is a tool to further educate citizens throughout the country about the events of that tragic day.

National Awards Services Inc.
Our 1.2 million-member organization started with the vision of one man—Paul P. Harris. The Chicago attorney formed one of the world’s first service organizations, the Rotary Club of Chicago, on 23 February 1905 as a place where professionals with diverse backgrounds could exchange ideas and form meaningful, lifelong friendships. Rotary’s name came from the group’s early practice of rotating meetings among the offices of each member.

You are invited to visit us at an upcoming meeting.
