[From Governor Greg Wims who will be our guest speaker on September 7, 2017]

As you know, Hurricane Harvey has hit Texas and Louisiana very hard.  The Rotary District in coordination with the Disaster Aid USA is starting a fund drive.  Please see the Press Release.  Individually and as a club, I urge you to donate generously.  Rotary's theme this year is Make A Difference.  Its time to make a difference.

Your donations will provide the funds for the volunteers to handle disaster related relief from Hurricane Harvey and direct assistance to the victims of the flood.

Donations are needed urgently, and checks (payable to DAUSA) can be mailed to: Disaster Aid USA, 9817 Lanham Severn Road, Lanham, MD 20706. Online donations can be made by visiting the website - and clicking-on the PayPal button. DAUSA is a tax-exempt 501-c-3 type organization, and all donations are tax-free. Questions may be directed to:
