1993-1994, Walt Ruddiman


Theme: Believe In What You Do, Do What You Believe In

1993-94 was another banner year for our Club. Topping our list of “good works” was our Rotary Workplace Food Drive where we raised $10,576 in cash and collected 218,748 pounds of food. Our “Elephant Ears” sale at the Art Fair netted out $5,423 to support our many Club projects. For the first time, the Board adopted a charitable giving policy that directs our giving to the Rotary “avenues of service” equally. A chairperson was selected for each area to recommend projects, and $23,088 was distributed in this manner: plus another $6,667 from our members for the Salvation Army.

Support of the Rotary Foundation continues with 4 Paul Harris Fellows recognized along with 32 P.R. “Sustainers.” Club membership rose to a record high of 241 members. We continue to support 4 Exchange Students.
