Redding Area Fire Victims Relief
We have all seen the tragedies of the recent wildfires in Redding, the northern portion of our own Rotary District 5160. The Woodland Rotary Endowment will match contributions made by our members to aid victims of the Redding area fire. Get your contributions (check’s payable to ‘Woodland Rotary Endowment’) to the Club’s meeting next Tuesday (August 14) and our Endowment will send that amount along with a match to the Shasta Regional Community Foundation’s (SRCF) Community Disaster Relief Fund with whom local Redding Rotary clubs are working in this effort. For more information contact Club President Mike Chandler.

Club President Mike Chandler and Membership Chair Jennifer Ward are launching a membership drive. Invite someone you feel could be a good new member to a Club meeting this August or September, and the Club will pay their lunch. As noted above subsequent guest free lunches happen as they show interest and submit a membership application. Contact Jennifer if you have questions.

Tanzania Children's Hospital Project
The new Digital X-ray building, at the Children's Hospital in Zinga, Tanzania, Africa, was recently opened. A $103,000 Rotary International Global Grant co-sponsored by all three Woodland Rotary clubs and others in our region, provided a digital x-ray system, a digital dental x-ray system and an ultrasound system, along with necessary training of local staff on their use, for this hospital.
'The primary objective of
this global grant is to improve access to diagnostic radiology services for the poor and underserved children of Tanzania.'
