At our General Assembly meeting on December 5, five new directors were elected to serve the 2017-2019 Rotary year.
In an effort to create a broader and deeper field of potential charity grant candidates, the Projects and Screening Committee of the club's Rotary Charity Foundation has extended the 2016-2017 grant application deadline.
If you are aware of eligible Duval County non-profit organizations who may be interested making application for charity funds, encourage them to review the qualifications and submit an application no later than December 16.
TEAMING UP TO DEFEAT POLIO
Another successful Rotary Day with the Jacksonville Jaguars is in the books! It was a gorgeous day and a terrific time of fun and fellowship. While the home team was not victorious, the real winners are the millions of children who will not have to worry about polio because of your generosity. Thanks to all who participated, and a special thank you to PDG Cynde Covington for her coordination with the team.
UPDATE FROM ROTARY DISTRICT 6780 GOVERNOR FRED HEITMAN
There have been many calls to ask how to help our fellow Rotarians and others in Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. The club presidents have asked Rotarians to wait until they can better assess what they really need once everything settles down. The Red Cross has asked for a "pause" in sending food, water and other supplies to the rescue workers and others who have lost their homes or otherwise are displaced as they have been overwhelmed by the support from the local communities wanting to help. Donations for the Wildfire Fund are currently being accepted in care of District 6780 Treasurer, Jenifer Campbell, 12515 Choto Mill Lane, Knoxville TN 37922.
