                           November is Foundation Month for Rotary, and I want to
                           share some thoughts on this very important aspect of Rotary
                                                                                             A Tale of Two Cities

                           how Foundation affects our club, our community and the

                           world at large. The mission of the Foundation is to enable
                                                                                             age of wisdom, it was the age of
                           Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and
                                                                                             foolishness, it was the epoch of
                           peace through the improvement of health, the support of
                                                                                             belief, it was the epoch of incredulity,
                           education, and the alleviation of poverty. The Foundation is a

Coins for Alzheimer Research Trust
The CART program was initiated in 1995 by the Rotary Club of Sumter, SC and has grown
and expanded to include all districts in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia. The
Mount Airy club lost interest a few years ago, but President Tim Marion felt a strong need
to bring it back, and once again we are actively engaged. In the past two months our club
has collected almost $600.00 from coins and bills tossed into our blue buckets each week.
This is wonderful. Your dollars combined with the other 11 districts can really add up.

Since 1999 there have been eight grants totally $1,850,000    for research. These grants     Birthdays &
