Rotary Moment:
Our Rotary Moment today was done by Michael Alty. The Rotary Foundation as of the 2015-2016 Financial Year had over $1 billion in assets invested. However, like many Rotary projects, the Rotary Foundation had a humble beginning. It was an initial contribution of $26.50 in 1917 which set in motion a powerful force that has transformed millions of lives around the globe!
