2018 Rotary Foundation Dinner

If service is the beating heart of Rotary, then the Rotary Foundation is its very lifeblood. It is in and through the Foundation that we are able to support projects locally and throughout the world. It is through the Foundation that Rotary is made real in the lives of millions: working for peace, supporting clean water and sanitation projects, providing for maternal and child health programs. This is all a result of Rotarians throughout the world generously sharing their resources.
Join us Thursday, November 8, 2018 at the Country Club of York (1400 Country Club Road, York, PA 17403) as we celebrate our Rotary Foundation and our achievements during the past year. Cocktail hour from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. Dinner and speaker from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Cost is $50 per person. Registration deadline is November 1, 2018.
You don’t want to miss our speaker Dr. Anne Mathews! She is a member of the Rotary Club of Columbia East in South Carolina and has served as Vice President of Rotary, a Trustee of the Rotary Foundation, trainer for District Governor elects, chair of the elections committee for the Rotary International President and many other positions. Her own service work includes projects in Kenya, South Africa, India and Ghana. She is by profession an educator, having taught at all levels from High School to University and has spoken in all 50 states and 35 different countries about the Rotary Foundation.
