WEEK 21 - NOVEMBER 20
The first Thanksgiving celebration was documented in the early 1600’s with a gathering of Puritans, Pilgrims and Native Americans to celebrate the harvest.
There is a striking similarity with Rotarians joining with different cultures and working together making a difference in the World!
From Kendra and I, we want to wish each of you a very “Happy Thanksgiving” and hope you get to spend time with family and good friends!
Howard Kelley, Rotary Club of Jacksonville, has graciously maintained the District 6970 website for the past nine years. He is stepping down from his webmaster duties on June 30, 2018.
As Howard steps down in lieu of having only one person manage the website we have decided to form a Webmaster Committee to delegate the tasks for maintaining the website. If you have an interest in serving on a Webmaster Committee to please contact Howard or me. Howard’s email: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for your support!

Jaguars Discount Ticket Program Benefits Rotary's Polio War Chest.
It's 2017 kickoff time for the partnership between Jaguar football and District 6970. One-thousand discounted tickets to the December 3rd Rotary Day Game — Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Indianapolis Colts. All but $10 of ticket proceeds goes to The Rotary Foundation for End Polio Now! In addition, two VIP suites are available for the December 3 Colts game.
In addition to selling tickets to members for their use clubs can donate tickets to the military service members or to under-privileged children or given to Interact, Rotaract and Youth Exchange students.
Clubs can make it a Fellowship Event...a project...a way to exceed a club's Polio Plus giving goals.
District Opens Fund to Receive Hurricane Relief Donations
As hurricanes Maria's and Irma's devastation are being assessed and victims seek relief, District 6970 has put in place a system for receiving and managing contributions for hurricane disaster relief in our area. Contributions can be made to the district's York Foundation, a 501(c)3 tax deductible charity fund.
Online club and individual contributions can be made directly by clicking the DONATE button below.
In addition to needed relief support within our own district, donations will afford financial support to Rotary districts such as Puerto Rico's District 7000 and South Florida/Caribbean District 6990.
