Message from District Governor Eileen Rau
Did you know that 60% of underprivileged children do not own a single book? Our District is working to help alleviate this problem. Reader to Reader, based in Amherst, Massachusetts, and our Rotary District 7890 are partnering to support literacy worldwide through our "Buck in a Book" Drive.
Here’s how it
works: collect gently used or new books of any subject, any genre, for any age.
Please make sure that the books are in very good condition. Put a dollar in
each book you collect. Bring your books and bucks to your Rotary Club. The
money you collect will be sent directly to Reader to Reader and put to good use
getting library starter kits and classroom sets into schools and supporting
domestic and international literacy projects. Books will be picked up by Reader
to Reader and sent out to schools, libraries, shelters, and senior centers
across the country.
For more information, be sure to check out the website www.readertoreader.org
or e-mail Kat Libby: email@example.com.
Wherever and whenever people are in need, Rotarians find a way to help showing the Power of Rotary in action.

May 10th End Polio Now Night at the Rock Cats
Over 200 Rotarians from District 7890 attended the "End Polio Now Night at the Rock Cats" night. Attendees enjoyed an outdoor barbeque of hamburgers, hot dogs, grilled chicken and lots of sides while watching a double-header game between the New Britain Rock Cats and the Portland Sea Dogs. Between games, Rotarians took to the field with their club banners and a representative from each club threw out an 'opening pitch' to start the second game.
