Rotarian Jim Becker, District Rotary Foundation Chair, shared with us very important information on Rotary International. Jim showed very moving video of RI then and now. You can feel confident donating to RI as 4 Star Charity Navigator gives it a rating of 92% which is one of the highest in the county. RI sends money back to our community over time. For example, we recently received an International Grant for our Head Start program. Our donations help Rotary achieve global projects of polio eradication, clean water, literacy and entrepreneurship in economically disadvantaged areas. The discussion segued into recognition of Paul Harris Fellows. Karen DeMatteo, Clarence Murphy and Frank Herting were recognized for their Paul Harris award history. Arlene and John Frailey accepted a Paul Harris for distinguished Rotarian, the late John Frailey. Frank Herting gifted his to his wife, Rotarian Barbara who has been very involved and a steadfast supporter of Rotary.
