MORE DETAILS ON SATELLITE CLUB
The Rotary Club of West Liberty is excited to announce a new way for both existing Rotarians and Rotarians-to-be to engage with one another, stay up to date with community news and events, and serve our West Liberty Community: The Rotary Club of West Liberty’s Noon Satellite Club!
The Satellite Club is a branch of our regular Club, and the members of the Satellite Club are full and complete members of the Rotary Club of West Liberty. The Satellite Club will have a different meeting location, a different program schedule, and most notably, a different meeting time compared to our regular evening club.
We know that we have Rotarians on our roster that would be able to attend more meetings if they were held during the day, and we have identified some non-rotarians that would be interested in participating in a Noon-time club because they are unavailable during the evening, hence the need for this Satellite Club.

Yours in Service,

FOUNDATION MINUTE: OCTOBER 10, 2022
Welcome to Week 2 of RI’s Month of Community Economic & Development.
Rotary International District 3281 (Bangladesh) organized a ceremony to mark the 100 days of Rotary’s current year at a hotel in Dhaka on Saturday. The DG, Mr. MA Wahab at the meeting said that this year, the Rotary Clubs were continuing their activities at the local level, inspired by the slogan ‘Every Hour Rotary Care’. According to an online news item, since July of 2022, at least 300 Lakh Rupees (US$362,176.80) has been spent on more than 300 service activities every month. (Article excerpted from website below.)
Rotarians at the ceremony learned that in the first 100 days, TRF received 7 Lakh (US$682,150). In addition, a Global Grant worth about 5 Lakh (US$ 487,250) has been approved, which will be used to conduct various projects in Bangladesh along with local clubs.
Speakers in the evaluation meeting emphasized that the visits of Rotary International president Jennifer Jones and former president Holger Knaack to Bangladesh in the first 40 days of this year, were two rare events. At least a half-thousand Rotarians from different parts of the country attended the meeting.
