Club dedicates meeting to recognize the Rotary Foundation

On Tuesday, November 29, 2022, Bob Patterson, Meriwether Co Rotary Club Foundation Chair, was the guest speaker at the Meriwether Co Rotary Club. Mr. Patterson spoke on how the Rotary Foundation makes a difference locally and internationally.

The Rotary Foundation helps members advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace by improving health, providing quality education, improving the environment, and alleviating poverty.

Since it was founded more than 100 years ago, the Foundation has spent more than $4 billion on life-changing, sustainable projects.

  • For as little as 60 cents, a child can be protected from polio.
  • $50 can provide clean water to help fight waterborne illnesses.
  • $500 can launch an antibullying campaign and create a safe environment for children.

Because of the Rotary Foundation, the Meriwether Rotary Club has received Rotary District Grants benefiting the Meriwether County community, including funding for LeapPad educational tablets, supplies for tornado victims, furniture for Good Shepherd Therapeutic Center, a Windsock for Warm Springs Medical Center, and many others projects.

The club has received two Rotary Competitive Grants for the Wraparound Care Centers in the Meriwether County School System.
