1. If you need to complete the District Grant training, we have an easy option for you. Simply visit the District website by clicking here. There are three short videos for you to watch, and an easy test to complete once you have watched all three.  There is a lot of information covered, including some new info, and I’m sure even the most experienced Rotarians will learn something interesting.

2. We are under 70 days away from the end of the Rotary year! This is the busiest time of year for Rotary fundraising and Rotary International has put together Five Great Ideas for Year-End Fundraising that you can use to close out the year strong! Click here to see them. 
3. A quick request for club presidents and Foundation chairs. Last month, the Imagine Challenge team sent a link for this survey. We still have a number of clubs that we haven’t heard from, and need to know which clubs completed the PolioPlus Imagine Challenge last fall.  Those clubs that completed at least three of the activities are eligible for a Paul Harris Fellowship to award to a club or community member.  Please complete the survey or reach out to Brenda Cressey via email

4. Hello Fellow Rotarians, as we head toward June 30, the end of our fiscal Rotary year, I just want to send a BIG shout-out to all of you for what you contribute and have accomplished. Whether it be your time or your dollars, it all makes a difference in the lives of others you may or may not ever get to meet. Click here for this year's Summary Statistics, or here for RI Finance Facts. With that said, let us please keep in mind that the year is not yet over and your continued good deeds, as well as your donations, are needed more than ever. Our membership numbers are down from last year by 48 members and as a result, so are the annual giving totals at many of our Clubs. The funding you provide today will make a difference to future local projects for our Clubs. We can still reach our Club goals for EREY and sustaining donors. Donate here. Again, thank you for all that you do and please know that by combining our giving with so many others we can truly make an impact and continue to do good in the world.
With all our gratitude,
Your District 7780 Annual Giving Team

Thank you, Jeff
5. A good time was had by all at the recent District Training Assembly, and a suggestion was made to share the link to the Jeopardy Game, Rotary Edition that we created for one of the breakout sessions at the DTA. Use it at an upcoming club meeting or social event.  Click here and enjoy!
