ONLY A FEW WEEKS LEFT! Butterflies and Friends needs your contributions. The most valuable items are restaurant gift certificates. The next time you’re out at your favorite restaurant, ask for a gift certificate. We could also use items to fill baskets such as wine, coffee, butterfly themed items, etc. Bring forth your donations and we’ll pass it forward for the good of the kids. Remember, half of the proceeds raised by the auction go to D11 School art programs and the remaining proceeds go into our Service Fund. Contact Michelle Parvinrouh at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any items you’d like to contribute. The last day to contribute is Friday, September 26th. Thank you for helping to make a difference!

Our club's Global Grant Scholar, Benjamin Jourdan, has been serving as an intern with the United Nations in Bangkok, Thailand. The internship will be complete at the end of this month and he will return to Cape Town to work on his dissertation. Ben should complete his degree requirements by February 2015.
The attached photo shows Ben exchanging our club's banner when he visited the Bangkok South Rotary Club, the only English-speaking club in that area.

We have a terrific opportunity to support the Rotary Foundation through added giving and recognize new Paul Harris Fellows. We are providing an incentive for you to add to your giving now. If you are nearing the level of $1,000 for a first Paul Harris Fellow recognition, you can give now and we will match your gift with recognition points at a ratio of 2:1. For every dollar you give we will add $2 in recognition points to your gift. This has been approved by the board and the individuals involved.
If you have received a first Paul Harris Fellowship and are working towards the 2nd, 3rd, or 4th level (etc.) we will add recognition points at the ratio of 1:1. For every dollar you give we will add a dollar’s worth of points to get you closer to your goal.
Please consider giving to the Rotary Foundation today and being able to award a Paul Harris Fellowship to yourself or someone else this year! Please talk to or call Warren Hill to find out more. He can answer questions on where you are now in total giving and what this offer can do for you. What a great way to honor someone for “Service Above Self”.
