We are pleased to invite you to participate in a COVID-19 #RotaryResponds one-hour Telethon to raise critical funds for disaster response. This Facebook Live event will be simulcast on the Rotary International page. The goal is to raise more than $1 million dollars. (the link is now live)

Rotary’s 1.2 million members across the globe have taken swift action to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. More than $3.4 million in Rotary Disaster Response Grants have already been put into action on the frontlines to battle COVID-19. Additionally, millions more have been raised by our #PeopleofAction - they have responded quickly and are truly saving lives. Now, we need to do more and the need for additional funding is a priority.

Join this live event to hear stories of hope, inspiration and gratitude from Rotarians, Rotaractors and friends of Rotary from across the globe as they share what they are doing to help their communities. The telethon will also showcase how our polio eradication infrastructure is helping to combat COVID-19.

How can you participate:

1. Participate in the telethon on Facebook Live on 2 May at Rotary International's page (facebook.com/rotary). The live stream will be simulcast in eight languages.

2. Share this event & spread the word through your social media channels.

3. Invite friends, family, and members of your community to watch and see first-hand what Rotary's People of Action are doing to combat COVID-19.

4. Post on social media during the broadcast and on the day of the event using the hashtag #RotaryResponds.

5. Donate as an individual or as a club at http://on.rotary.org/drf [Note: Be sure to login to your My Rotary account to receive your Paul Harris Fellow recognition points.]

6. Encourage your Rotary District to donate District Designated Funds (DDF) at https://on.rotary.org/ddf-donate. (Note: DDF received between April 22st and May 3rd will be considered part of the telethon fundraising total.)

Warmest, Jen

Ross Blaha, Two Rivers Water Utility Director, spoke at our meeting this morning. He taught us so much about how we get our water, and more. What an operation they are running here in TR. Here's a link to find our more about the forward strides they are taking to continue the improvement of the water department in our town. They are doing great things there.
Thank you for your time Ross. It was fascinating information.

Thank you to the donor for the flags, but more importantly thank you to the Two Rivers Police, and all the other law enforcement that risk their lives daily to protect us.
These look beautiful.

Thank you to Jeff Dawson, Director – Lester Public Library (12 years and counting) as our speaker on July 23rd, 2019.
Jeff is well known to our Club and community, Jeff thanked our Club for the long-standing support and the most recent District Grant award, which provided funds for expanding the Dramatic Play area. Jeff stressed the importance of creative space in the early development of children. This will be a vital part of the library’s mission as an educational component of our community.

Jeff concluded by outlining plans for a $350,000 capital campaign.This will provide funding to replace aging carpeting; expand the electrical infrastructure and open up access to the lake/garden views.

We hope to have you join us again soon Jeff. And another big thank you for the beautiful photos of TR that you post on the TR City Hall FB page..
