We just received this nice thank you note from our District 5830 Governor, Tom DeWitt:
Just a note to summarize my enjoyment of visiting with your club. It has been a busy three weeks since I visited with you, but I hope my comments are valid as I again congratulate your for the success you are experiencing.
I hope everyone has seen the results of Bob's request that I find out why Rotary was not an approved charity for donations from Ebay and Amazon transactions. Rotary enjoys a flat administration and within a few days our Zone Director Karen Wentz had gotten us approved by Amazon and they are working on Ebay. The power of what one Rotarian can have.
Twelve new Paul Harris Fellows!!! WOW!!!! What evidence of your commitment to our organization. The $3,712 in donations to the Annual Fund and $4,261 to Polio Plus indicate that you took advantage of the matching program within the District, with 100% of your membership contributing.
Your activities with the schools, teacher of the year, will pay dividends within your community for years to come. I also know that your participation in the Smith County Leadership meetings will make all of us more successful in sharing our Rotary story with the public.
Since I was around when the Bullard Club was established, I take a great deal of pride in the Children's Park and tree planting that highlight what you mean to your community. Please keep Fran aware of your service projects and fund raisers, you will be surprised at the number of Rotarians from other clubs that will want to support your efforts.
Anne and I have not yet opened the wines you gave me, but we will and I will let you know how much we enjoyed toasting our friends in the Bullard Club when we do! I appreciate your friendship and support and congratulate you for all you do for Bullard, The District, Rotary and the World.
