WELCOME

Dear Friends and Rotarians,
Our club meets at Montreux Bar & Grill Restaurant, 127 West Richardson Ave, Summerville, SC Monday's at 5:30 PM. All are welcome!

I hope this message finds you doing well and having a great day.  Unfortunately, as you know, that is not the case for our fellow people in Texas.  Hurricane Harvey is taking a toll on that state and it is, sadly, nowhere close to done yet.  As you may know, I have already been in contact with Bill Palko, the District Governor in the Houston area.  It's way too soon to know exactly what they need but I'd like to get a head start on things.  Tonight we will begin collecting donations for Hurricane Harvey Relief efforts.  Although it will be a week or so until we know exactly where the funds are needed, there is no doubt every penny we contribute will be needed and more.  Please consider a donation tonight towards these efforts.  We will collect tonight at the meeting and through at least the week, possibly longer.
All donations will go through our club foundation.  Please make checks payable to the Rotary Club of Summerville Evening Charitable Foundation.  Also, please include a note on your check (or with your cash donation) that theses funds are marked for Hurricane Harvey Relief.  That will help on all ends and keep our records straight for the 501(c)3.  As this is a donation to the foundation, it is tax deductible - keep that in mind when writing that check!
Many of us know the devastation these storms can cause.  Please give what you can tonight and continue to pray for all effected by this storm.  Keep all of those responding in your prayers for strength as they work nonstop and pray that relief comes soon for everyone in Texas.
See you all tonight.
