The Orphan Train Project is made possible by the Madison West Towne-Middleton Rotary Foundation, Inc.  It seeks to assist children living in foreign orphanages in a variety of ways, and has been doing so for twenty-two years.  Over the past two decades, more than fifty children’s homes, in ten different countries, have been helped. Some of the assistance has been for a number of years. However, help has sometimes been given once, with a single goal in mind.

Calling All Projects: Undesignated Funds FINAL NOTICE!
 

 

At our November foundation board of directors meeting we reviewed our funding and commitments.  For fiscal year 2018-2019 we funded all approved projects and still had a total of $5,635 available.  In one instance we did not receive a district matching grant for Jefferson Middle School.  Further, we did not have approved projects to use all the community service funding.  Due to high demand all district matching grant funds have been committed already. In keeping with our mission, we would like to find a way to best utilize these undesignated funds.
 
We will accept applications for such undesignated funds no later than December 31,
2018.  If anyone from the club has a project that requires funding, they should complete the Undesignated Funds Request (available on Club Runner) and submit it to the appropriate Avenue of Service Chair as follows:
•    Community – Kevin Welton
•    International – Steve Aune
•    Vocational – Roxanne Brazeau
I attached the Undesignated Funding Request form to the email carrying this Bulletin. Funding requests will be reviewed by the chair, who will make final recommendations to the board of directors.  The board will review all recommended projects and vote to approve any such projects at the regularly scheduled board meeting on January 15, 2019. Applicants will be notified of the board decision shortly thereafter.  If you have any questions, contact Matt Loch at matthewloch26@gmail.com.

What is Rotary Friendship Exchange?

Posted by David Clemens, District Friendship Exchange Chairman
The Rotary Friendship Exchange program gives Rotarians (including a spouse or significant other) the opportunity to host and visit Rotarians around the world. In addition to experiencing other cultures and making lasting friendships, an exchange provides a strong foundation for carrying out other international activities and service projects.
 
The primary goal of a Friendship Exchange is to build greater international understanding and goodwill. In addition, exchange participants can learn how their vocations are practiced in other parts of the world, observe new customs and cultures, and promote an appreciation of cultural diversity worldwide.
