Foundation Dinner Keynote Speech- John Kuhl
November is Rotary Foundation Month focusing on our contributions to the Foundation and what those dollars can do for our club and our community.
From Imagination to Impact- The Rotary Foundation is critical to transforming great Rotary ideas into great Rotary deeds. January 20, 2022, Jennifer Jones introduced Imagine Rotary as the theme of her presidential year. Imagine a world without Polio. Imagine a world with clean water for everyone. Imagine a world free of disease- a world where every child learns to read. Imagine kindness, and hope, and love, and peace. We are called to dream big. Big dreams take big funding. We need to be actively involved in both the giving to and the taking from the Foundation to impact our communities and the world.
