John O'Loughlin, CU Geography Professor - Should We Fear Russia?

The Soviet Union may have collapsed nearly 30 years ago, and with it the Cold War. But Russia is still viewed as a geopolitical risk to the US as well as by neighboring nations. Is that fear justified or is it overblown? Find out on Friday from John O'Loughlin.

Paul Harris Fellowship Matching Donation Program

The Ted Manning Memorial Match is back for the 11th year.  Michael Weatherwax is again honoring Ted Manning by continuing the Paul Harris Fellowship Matching Donation that Ted and Michael started 11 years ago.

Do you want to become a Paul Harris Fellow (PHF) by making a total donation of $1,000 to The Rotary Foundation (TRF), then May 17 to June 15 is the time to do it.  If you make a contribution of $500 to TRF, Michael will match your donation with another $500 to get you to your PHF.  If you have previously donated some amount less than $1,000 to TRF, you donate half of the difference and Michael will donate the other half and you become a PHF.

If you are already a PHF ($1,000 total donations) to a PHF+7 ($8,000 total donations), you donate one-half of what it takes to get to the next PHF level and Michael will donate the other half.  PHF+8 is the top level.  If you are already a PHF-8 or a Major Donor, you donate $500 minimum and Michael will match what you donate.  Matches are limited to $1,000 per donor.

Michael will be out of the Country from May 20 to June 6, 2019, so TK Smith will assist you in making your donations and getting the supporting paperwork to Michael for his match.
