TALKING WITH THE PRESIDENTS
Incoming Foundation Chair David Dean and Grants Chair Haran Ramachandran spoke with the incoming Club Presidents at PELD recently. During his presentation David compared planting seeds and then, in 3 years, harvesting the fruit to Giving to Our Foundation.
He is exactly right. Giving today provides funding in 3 years to help drive our projects. Please continue to generously support Our Foundation.
 
Thank you for reading. 
Stay safe.

District Rotary Foundation Chair
