Compounding Goodness: Global Grants in District 7780
By: Dave Underhill,  District Chair for Global Grants
Pop quiz: take a guess.  What is the total number of draft + pending + active Rotary Foundation Global Grant Projects involving Rotary Clubs from Southern Maine and Seacoast New Hampshire?
A: Five
B: Twelve
C: Nineteen
D: Twenty-nine
E: Fifty-three
The answer to the quiz is (D): as of the date this article was written in mid-March, we had a total of twenty-nine global grants, of which ten were in draft or pending status, and nineteen underway with active-approved status.  That’s a lot of international service!
Surprised?  Our District Rotarians are hard at work around the globe on projects funded by you.
Your Rotary Foundation dollars are doing the work you choose.  Our Foundation is supported by your Club and personal donations.  
What To Know About Social Media
By: Juliana L'Heureux - (
By its nature, social media is a short attention span media—you have to catch attention quickly while readers are scrolling through dozens of posts at a time. 
  • Social media is a highly competitive venture with a short attention span – in other words, get to the point!
  • Always attach images with your posts- many links from websites will automatically attach an image.
  • Be consistent. Post content related to Rotary as often as possible
