My fellow District 5960 Rotarians - Welcome to November. Where did October go? I could swear I just wrote an ATD intro last week. Maybe it's because it still feels like October but with fewer leaves on the trees. November is Rotary Foundation month and a month of Thanksgiving. Please spend a little time contemplating all you have to be thankful for - food in your belly, clean water in your house, a roof over your head - and then remember those that are less fortunate. Our Rotary Foundation is there to help those in need around the world and in our backyards. If you have never given to the foundation, now is the time. If you give occasionally, it's time to pledge to give every year, and if you are already an "Every Rotarian, Every Year," my heartfelt thanks. Together we are making the world a better place.

Around the District - November 2022 

Yours in Rotary,
Dayle Quigley MD (she/her/hers)

INEXPENSIVE ADVERTISING - Would you like to support this effort? You can do this by being a sponsor or advertiser. You can "buy" a 30-60 second slot for $50 a week. You write or let the radio people write it for you. Read it yourself, have a host read it, or the radio station will have one of their readers record it. Either way, you get your name out there for a pittance. - Contact DG Dayle Quigley for more information. 

Shoreview’s first pollinator and rain garden planted.

2021-2022 District Grant

The city’s first pollinator rain garden has been planted. Located at McCullough Park, the garden is a cooperative effort between Arden Hills-Shoreview Rotary Club, partnering with the Shoreview Parks and Recreation and Public Works Department and the Rice Creek.

Fast for Hope is now LIFT

Fast for Hope has been a district program for over 20 years.  Over the last 10 years, FFH has been focused on addressing extreme poverty in Nicaragua by building community leadership and capacity.  FFH has been working mostly in one community, El Corozo, and has had success by bringing children’s reading programs to the community, as well as a community pharmacy.
For the last two years, and with the help of District and Global grants, FFH has been building a community water system in El Corozo.  When completed, the sustainability of the water system for this small community of about 120 families will be assured through metering and payments by the community for water usage and overall management of the system by a local water governance committee.

We are delighted that Alex Johnson will be our speaker on Grow Rotary Through Service.  All Rotarians are invited to attend. 

Rotary Club of Plano West comes in. As Johnson, the club’s president, explains, Plano West always stands ready to help. The club partners with churches, schools, and the city on an average of more than six service projects a month, engaging in a hands-on way with virtually every part of Plano. But it was the work done in Douglass during the COVID-19 pandemic that helped transform Plano West into the thriving, diverse Rotary club that it is today.
