The Plaza Rotary Club, as is our tradition, is a Global Sponsor for this year’s district Foundation dinner coming up on October 28th at Arrowhead Stadium.  Also, as is our tradition, we are asking club members to pay their own way so that all $5000 of our sponsorship can go directly to the foundation.  If you would like to attend…instructions below..or contact Club Foundation Chair Roger Samuel at
