Greetings Fellow Green Bay Rotarians!
I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and spent time sharing thanks with family and friends. With the busy Holiday season coming upon us, balancing our personal and professional lives becomes even more difficult than at other times. Thinking about our ‘service above self’ commitment to Rotary can easily be put aside ‘until next year”. The last three weeks we have had wonderful testimonies from Tom Friese, Tom Hamilton and Paul Kendle as they have related how they have given to and benefited from the Rotary International Foundation. It is always good to hear the wonderful service Rotarians are doing around the world. It is also good to hear a specific action that can be taken. So, I was particularly impressed with Paul Kendle’s commitment to giving to the foundation four times per year. Sounds like a great plan and one that I would like to join in on. If you would too, please contact Tom Guyette and, I am sure, he can help with the logistics.
Yours in Rotary,
- Do you an idea for a Rotary club speaker for the New Year?
- Do you have an idea of a lunch activity that could get our group engaged?
- Please contact Barbie Patterson, or me. We would love to get new ideas!

Scholars must commence studies no earlier than the beginning of the academic year in the fall of 2019 and conclude no later than December 30, 2020 and expend the scholarship funds within 12 months of starting studies.
In recognition of The Rotary Foundation’s (TRF) 100-year anniversary in 2017, the TRF Trustees set out to develop a plan to move the foundation toward its second century of service. The plan, called the Future Vision Plan, focuses TRF-funded programs to specific areas where they will have the greatest impact by addressing priority world needs that are presently most relevant to Rotarians.
As a result, to be eligible for a Rotary District 6220 Global Grant Scholarship, an applicant must have a background, intended graduate studies and future career plans related to at least one of the following focus areas:
