November is Foundation Month, highlighting the amazing impact that donations to the Rotary Foundation can have around the world. At our next meeting on Nov. 5, our own Val Tibbets will give FIR members important information about The Rotary Foundation (TRF), including insight into the grant process, the importance of the foundation and more. 
Each year, Rotary Clubs pledge a certain amount in donations to the Foundation. In order to fulfill the club’s commitment, a raffle will be held for a beautiful piece of handcrafted jewelry, designed by our very own Charles Yousling, set with emerald stones donated by Steve Miller (and beautifully modeled by Kandy Dubuque!) Click to learn more about how you can come to own this amazing piece!
This necklace would make a perfect gift for someone special - or even for yourself!  
Raffle tickets may be purchased at meetings on Nov. 12 and 19 for $5 per ticket. The winning raffle ticket will be drawn during the Nov. 19 meeting. Remember, without your donations, the Foundation cannot continue to accomplish its worthwhile work throughout the world.
In addition, our TRF committee is asking all members to think about a community member they may know that has made special contribution to the Anacortes community, as we would love to honor a community member with a Paul Harris recognition. If you have someone  in mind, please write up your choice and reason(s) why this person should be considered for a Paul Harris recognition.  These suggestions may be  returned to Jan Vigre, Chr., TRF committee, or any of the following committee members: Susan Guterbock, Walter Guterbock, Steve Miller, Pam Putney,  Bill Rabel, and  Val Tibbetts.
Thanks for your commitment to Service Above Self, and always Doing Good in the Neighborhood!
