Guest Speaker Dave Drislane on “Sustaining Membership.”


Dave gave an excellent talk on the importance of the Rotary Foundation and sustaining membership. Dave emphasized the international work done by Rotary and the projects that the Foundation is funding. To help support these efforts, Rotary depends on sustaining membership funds. The goal of Rotary is for each member to give $100 per year, which amounts to $.30 a day or $2 a week. This year, Everett Rotary donated $1085 to the Polio Plus Campaign. Dave acknowledged the tremendous work of the Club.


Don't Forget....We will remain meeting at the Crimson Cafe-Everett High School-throughout the summer months. The room is air conditioned and the luncheon arrangements will be made by George and Janet.
