ALAN SHAWN FEINSTEIN $1,000,000.00 ROTARY CHALLENGE TO ALLEVIATE HUNGER: BETTY NELSON, Immediate Past President, announced that the Club had received a check made payable to the Food Finders Food Bank, Inc. (Food Bank) in the amount of ~$3,830.00 which amounts to approximately $.4968 for each dollar raised by the Club. Contributions by members and a grant from the Lafayette Rotary Foundation to the Food Bank amounted to $7,705.00. Therefore, this amount, $7,705.00, plus the amount from the Alan Shawn Feinstein Challenge, $3,830.00, means that the Club was responsible for generating $11,535.00 for the Food Bank's recent capital funds drive.

ROTARY WEB SITE ‹ www.lafayetterotary.org › will continue to have "Ripples." Previously CHRIS FUNK has been manually entering it; however, he was at GRIFF's residence on Monday and hopefully has him trained to e-mail "Ripples" from a disk directly to CHRIS. No guarantees at this time as to whether the training session was successful.
