ROTARY FOUNDATION RECOGNITION POINTS

Norma did an excellent job of explaining recognition points and how to use them.

I HOPE YOU WERE PAYING ATTENTION

(I’m still a little confused)

Here’s the short version - “Donors receive one recognition point for every US dollar contributed to these funds.”(after your first $1,000)

There are Soooooo many ways to use your points.  Remember, points   EXPIRE when you EXPIRE!

Please call Fred or Norma to learn how many points you have and how to use them.
