GUESS WHO'S COMING TO DINNER!
Participants will be notified Monday, that's tomorrow! If you haven't heard from me by Monday evening, please let me know! Prepare to be surprised! We have 21 people signed up for the dinner on May 4th. BUT, you won't be notified of your assignment until Monday April 29th. Please don't ask me ahead of time....we won't tell!
GREENBELT FUNDRAISING - WE ARE THIS CLOSE-ALL ROTARIANS PLEASE STEP UP NOW!
Fund raising for the Rotary Park on the Greenbelt is underway! Last week, we "sold" the last bench for $2,500. (We have three interpretive signs that are "for sale" at $5,000). We have set up a GoFundMe account which is already attracting attention.  We'll have a display table set up at District Celebration.  There are TWO things you can do right now:
 
  • Buy a Rotary Brick. Leave your name to posterity by having a brick engraved in the plaza.
  • Make a contribution on the GoFundMe page and be sure to share it with your social media contacts.
     Buy a Brick     Make a contribution
We put a "Project Update" sign on a sandwich board so speeding cyclists might be more likely to see it! 
YALI COMING IN JUNE
Last week Cornelia provided more information about the Young Africa Leadership Initiative happening in June.   The Department of English at BSU won a managing grant from the Mandela Washington Fellowship. There will be 26 young professionals from all over Africa visiting Boise for six weeks  starting in June. June 25th has been scheduled for "Home Dinners". We can volunteer to assist in a variety of ways: drivers, mentors, one-on-ones, etc. They'll be living on Campus but we don't want them to tire of student union fare!
