DG Mike’s Rotary Cups of Cold WaterI initially developed this abbreviated “nuts & bolts newsletter” for Rotary club presidents, secretaries, and Assistant Governors to keep them in the loop with key information.  Recently it has been suggested the Cups be made available for all members of District 6000 to read.  If you are interested in reading DG Mike’s Rotary Cups of Cold Water click here. 
It is rewarding to see how Rotary clubs are taking this year’s theme of Rotary: Making a Difference very seriously.  You are helping to make the world a better place by your active involvement in Rotary and impacting the lives of more people than you will ever realize.  Thank you for your Service Above Self commitment to Rotary.  You are indeed making a positive difference.

Our District’s global project in 2017-18 is to support World Bicycle Relief; bikes are $147, including shipping. Contributions can be made in 3 ways:     a) online, see below link b) individual writes a check (any amount, it all helps) payable to WBR or c) the club writes a check from their treasury.  Only the online gifts and checks written by individuals are tax deductible, not checks written by a club.  You can bundle checks from individuals and mail the group to: WBR,1000 W. Fulton Market, 4th Floor Chicago, IL 60607.  Add a note that the donations are to be credited to District 6000.  They will send each individual a receipt.  Check out this link! http://rotary.worldbicyclerelief.org/rotary-district-6000  It gives a lot of information and includes a GREAT 3-minute video!
