District Governor's Foundation Moment

What is a Major Donor and Arch Klumph Society Member?
Major Donor – The Rotary Foundation recognizes individuals or couples whose combined giving reaches US$10,000, regardless of the gift designation. This recognition level can be achieved only through personal contributions. Major Donors may elect to receive a crystal recognition piece and pin(s) commemorating the gift at each new recognition level. Since Rotary’s Major Donor recognition began, there have been over 30,000 Major Donors.
Arch Klumph Society – Donors whose cumulative gifts total US$250,000 or more are recognized as Arch Klumph Society members. Recognition includes an induction ceremony and your picture and biography in the Arch Klumph Society interactive gallery at the Rotary International headquarters in Evanston, Illinois, USA. Members also receive invitations to society events, along with membership pins and crystals that commemorate their giving level. Since the society’s creation in 2004, there have been over 700 Arch Klumph Society members.

President Elect's Report
Passport Club Vision Exercise – Step 1 again.
I mentioned that we would be bringing a discussion for all Club Members to our Tuesday gathering for fellowship and conversation. Before we address any strategic planning that has been asked of us by the District, we need to first determine who we are, what are our strengths, what are our passions – in effect, what is the nature of our own club. That discussion will result in a mission statement that clearly sums up our intentions. 
To prime your mental pumps, and provide a context for our conversation, here are Rotary’s five avenues of service: 
1.         Club Service
2.         Vocational Service
3.         Community Service
4.         International Service
5.         Youth Service
You can find the full wording in the Standard Rotary Club Constitution, template, on the District website. However, I encourage you to think about how we might approach each of these areas as the D7040 Passport Club.
