A little while ago, President John Wahl of the Waterloo Club wrote to all District 7080 Presidents pointing out that if each club donated $1,000 a year for this year and next, we would achieve our goal of $50,000 in scholarships for 2014 and 2015.

I am pleased to report that some clubs are exceeding that request. Recently, we received a $4,000 donation from the Rotary Club of Mississauga, and a donation of $2,085 from the Rotary Club of Woodstock, in addition to a $1,000 donation from the Rotary Club of Waterloo.

As we approach the December 31st deadline for personal donations in this tax year, a donation to the Rotary Peace Scholarship Fund would make a great gift honouring a club member, spouse, or other significant person.

Donations can be made out to the Rotary Club of Kitchener Foundation, and please put “Rotary Peace Scholarship” in the memo line. They can be mailed to:
