Wicked Proud To Be Keeping Above The Million-Dollar Mark
By Ralph Hammond
For the second straight week, District 7910 is keeping above the million-dollar mark in projects both at home and worldwide. A total of $1,024,845 is still in action because of your continued Foundation support, both programmatically and financially.
Last week, the Rotary Club of Sturbridge closed its fantastic Food Pantry Project and the PR gained by that project was also fantastic. At the same time, a Global Grant water project in Tanzania by the Rotary Club of Neponset Valley in partnership with Engineers Without Borders came online, and is keeping us above the million-dollar mark through our continual commitment to "service above self." 
We all should be wicked proud to be a now-more-than Million-Dollar District, with Foundation funds in action worldwide and at home. Twelve slots are still open for district grants, so begin your project and let's keep us at or above that million-dollar level.  
Never before has D7910 achieved this fantastic impact in our world. It is only because of your generous contributions to the Annual Fundthat makes this possible.
