The Winners of the Jaguars Game Day Raffle ARE:
- Ray Driver of Deerwood, who won two seats in Shad Khan’s box.
- And Craig Carter of Gainesville won a private suite for 20 people.
There are still $45 tickets available for the December 1 game, and all the proceed go to eliminate Polio.
It’s Foundation Month, and Polio is just one of the outstanding programs run by The Rotary Foundation. Most of us know that it continues to receive the highest rating by Charity Navigator because it is SO effective. Spend some time sharing ways the Foundation has helped people in your community, and across the World. It is one of the best tools to make a good impact—and it’s ours to use.
And finally, if you haven’t signed up to go to the International Convention in Honolulu, DO IT NOW! You’ll hear incredible speakers, and trade ideas with 30,000 Rotarians from around the World. Costs go up December 15. Join us!

The Five Avenues of Service
Club Service focuses on making clubs strong.
A thriving club is anchored by strong relationships
and an active membership development plan.
Vocational Service calls on every Rotarian to work
with integrity and contribute their expertise to the problems and needs of society.
Community Service encourages every Rotarian
to find ways to improve the quality of life for people in their communities and to serve the public interest.
International Service exemplifies our global reach in promoting peace and understanding. We support this service avenue by sponsoring or volunteering on international projects, seeking partners abroad, and more.
