Update! Our club has virtually travelled over 14,000 miles to attend Rotary meetings in 6 other districts! If you’ve visited another club recently, please be sure to tell Cornelia so we can get credit for it. And remember that you can also bring guests to our club for points. Have you invited anyone to Rotary recently?

Ramadan is the holy month of the Islamic calendar. It’s a month-long period of fasting, followed by a feast day celebration that’s also a day of giving gifts and doing acts of kindness. For you Christians, you might think of like Lent, followed by Christmas Day! 😊 To acknowledge our local refugee community, many of whom are Muslim, our club will once again support the Ramadan Grocery Project this year. You can help in two ways:
  1. Donate food (or money for food) to Cornelia who heads up the annual service project. Details are here. You can find her on Venmo and PayPal.
  2. Deliver a completed gift bag as part of our club’s Second Tuesday day of service. Sign up at that same link. You’ll be picking up a bag at 3600 N Trail Circle between noon and 1:00 on May 11 and making contactless doorstep that afternoon or evening. We will have at least 30-50 bags to distribute so your help is appreciated!
For more information on either of these opportunities, or about the Ramadan Grocery Project in general, reach out to Cornelia at
Shiloh has sent you a book of tickets. The stubs have to be back to her by May 10th. This is an annual tradition of our District 5400; its the major fundraiser for the District; some of the money comes back to the clubs. It is the expectation that every Rotarian will sell ten tickets, either to friends and family members or to themselves!
It is district raffle time! Your chance to win!
We are having our annual triple grand prize raffle. Your club's President Elect (or another officer) has been mailed the tickets. Make sure your club is actively promoting the raffle. If your club isn't promoting the raffle, please email
If you are inactive Rotarian; hopefully you still have enough Rotary in your heart to support our raffle. 
It is the only major fundraiser of the District. Every club and every Rotarian is obligated to participate. The purchase of least one $10  ticket (or a book 10), isn't too much to ask from every Rotarian. 

We love Charlene's purple hair!.......Shiloh's bees are in the fridge, she'll let them out soon........Carrie is feeling good about travelling to Baltimore for a work conference......congrats to Bret - his son just got his MBA.........We look forward to spotlight on Roger thist week.....Cornelia reports that her Ramadan drive is going gangbusters.......The Stonehouse, like so many businesses, is having staffing stay tuned.......
