List below are many of the ways our local Rotary Club made a difference in 2017-18.  A summary page goes beyond this list and gives one a better feel for the year's accomplishments!

District 6080 provides Grant to local Club

The Fayette Rotary Club has successfully acquired a Rotary District grant for several years running.  This year's grant application is new bleachers at the Howard County Fair grounds.  The new bleachers cost $1837.  The grant is for $900.  The Club raised the money for the balance.

Trivia Night Fundraiser coming in January.

Your annual gift to The Rotary Foundation of RI helps promote world understanding and peace through countless local, national, and international humanitarian, education, and cultural programs.  Just imagine what could be accomplished if every Rotarian contributed $100, every year.  The local club will match a member gift up to $100 or to the extent available funds will allow.

Rotarians - take advantage of matching funds
from the local club and the district
when making your contribution to Rotary International

(please take care of this by June 1st)

The Happy Can is passed around each meeting to collect dollars for a needy project.  Members who are especially happy or proud make a donation as they are relating their information.  Each month the donations are sent to the designee of the month.  The Club Board selects the project and the information is distributed with each meeting reminder.  List of Projects.
