Rotarian Charles Clements, left, presented a program on the Rotary International Foundation at the Oct. 4 Kingsville Noon Rotary Club meeting. The Foundation transforms gifts from members into projects that change lives around the world. As the charitable arm of Rotary, it taps into a global network of Rotarians who invest their time, money and expertise into the organization’s priorities such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. The Foundation empowers Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact. Right is Rotarian Robert Diersing.
