Great BBQ as always by the Foundation Fryers!

100 ACTS OF GOOD UPDATE
The #100ActsOfGood campaign is just past the halfway point. It has been truly amazing to see the ways District 6970 Rotarians make a difference in their community every, single day. It is my hope that every Rotarian in our district participates in this program in some way. Please go to www.100actsofgood.org and add an event for your club, your business, or yourself personally. There are plenty of open dates available in May. And be sure to share the website with friends. Tell the Rotary story!
Only 51 days until the All Star Conference in Atlanta! Don’t forget to buy your raffle ticket for the Executive Suite! www.allstarconference.org/suite

Jamia was born in a rural village in Zambia miles away from the nearest road. As she grew up, her community slowly grew and developed. A well was dug to provide clean water and cell phone towers spread across the landscape. One day, someone came to tell her family about the importance of building a pit latrine. Her father was reluctant at first, but eventually asked his brother to help him build a latrine. They dug a hole, covered it with a concrete slab, and built a shelter over it for privacy and safety. It wasn’t much to look at, but it was their own and they took great care to keep it clean and maintain it.
