The Sheridan Rotary Club was pleased to honor long-time member Dale McCullough recently for his contributions to The Rotary International Foundation. Dale has contributed multiple times over the years and in 2019 he reached yet another milestone achievement level for which he was honored by being given a special medallion lapel pin.

The mission of The Rotary Foundation is to enable Rotarians to advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through the improvement of health, the support of education, and the alleviation of poverty. The Foundation transforms the monetary gifts of Rotary members into projects that change lives both close to home and 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 their priorities, such as eradicating polio and promoting peace. Foundation grants empower Rotarians to approach challenges such as poverty, illiteracy, and malnutrition with sustainable solutions that leave a lasting impact.

Sheridan Rotary has formal meetings in the Community Room of the Sheridan Public Library on the first and third Tuesday evenings of each month at 6:15 p.m. with dinner and a program. Sometimes our programs revolve around Rotary themes but more often we feature special guest speakers from the surrounding community. On Tuesday, January 31, our speaker will be Doug Sanford, the Hamilton County Animal Control Coordinator. If you are interested in attending a meeting, please contact any Sheridan Rotary member or call Steve Martin (765) 513-7457 and let me know you would like to attend. The library is located at 103 W. First St. in beautiful uptown Sheridan, just on the country side of Hamilton County, Indiana. Won’t you join us?
