RI Birthday Foundation Matching – Foundation Chair Gary Vihauer reports that 7 members took advantage of the double matching opportunity on  February 23. The club will continue to match donations up to $200. It would be great if every member would participate in Foundation giving every year at some level, the amount is secondary.

Can you help? – The Alamo club, who has been a huge contributor to the success of the new “Rotacare” free clinic in Pittsburg, has asked our club to see if there is someone who would be willing to donate a couple of hours a week to do simple data entry. If you can help, please let Pres Tony know.
