The Southern Rensselaer County Rotary Club budgeted $1,000 in this Rotary Year to fund a pair of scholarships for the Rotary Scholarship Composition competition. However, we have received zero entries.
So, the $1,000 will be rolled into the line-item budget commitment to ShelterBox. That increases the amount to $3,000.
In addition, Bill and April Dowd have personally pledged $1,000 toward ShelterBox, meaning the club now has funds to purchase four (4) of them @ $1,000 each.
Anyone else who wishes to contribute toward that project should contact Bill no later than the April 2 meeting because we want to get the club check sent to the District 7190 ShelterBox coordinators right away.
SRC has long been a strong supporter of the ShelterBox humanitarian aid program and recently received recognition from the program during the annual Rotary Day at the United Nations.
