All four area Rotary clubs  will jointly host the new District Governor, John D.

Please take this opportunity to join the other clubs at Kingsmill for a different venue and different menu.  This meeting on July 18 will be in place of our usual meeting on July 20.  We will need a head count, so please respond to Wade Quinn at WGQwork@gmail.com by July 6th to indicate if you will attent and if you are bringing a guest. 



Mike D'Alesandro, our  Club Treasurer, has indicated that email quarterly dues notification have been sent.  If you have not received it or would like to change your email address, please email Mike.  Please pay dues as soon as possible so our cash flow is balanced.  Dues are due within 30 days of the invoice sent.  Thank you. 


Foundations Supported Annually by Club Members:

(1) Williamsburg Rotary Foundation (WRF) - The WRF is building an endowment that will deliver an annual funding for our club's local grants that our members request in support of local charities.  Club members are encouraged to voluntarily donate at least $25 (minimum) each quarter with their dues invoice ($100 a year).  

(2) The Rotary Foundation (TRF) - The mission of TRF is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, support of education, and alleviation of poverty through District, Global, and packaged grants.  TRF awards grants from funds that have accumulated from donations.  The funds are returned to our district after three years to support annual grant requests, whether local or global.  We also encourage donations annually to TRF of amounts no less than $25 per quarter (minimum).
