An Exceptional Effort

Mark Pearce Announcements, District Governor, Foundation

Rotary District 6080 is a part of ZONE 31 that takes in all or parts of eight states – Arkansas, Illinois, Louisiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Missouri, Oklahoma and Texas. There are many tremendous Rotary clubs in the “Heart of America” region, so it’s difficult for any one club to exhibit transcending accomplishment among the field; but one of our clubs has done just that.

Rotary Foundation Trustee Chair and former International President Bill Boyd has written a letter of congratulations to the Springfield Southeast Rotary Club for its exceptional support to the Rotary Foundation in 2011-12. Not only was it exceptional…last year Springfield Southeast was the top giving club in Zone 31. Southeast contributed $39,538 to the Annual Program Fund (APF) and an additional $9,543 to other Foundation program accounts.

Congratulations to 2011-12 club President Brent Baldwin and the scores of members who contributed to this outstanding campaign. You bring honor to your club, your community and your district; and most importantly, you help to make the world a better place.

Thank you.
Mark Pearce
Governor 2012-13
