Calling All Rotary Polio Moto Riders! We need your Forms

I am as guilty of waiting to that last minute as anyone else.  But I need to have a headcount for our event since we are having lunches provided on the route, thanks to some great Rotarians and Rotary Clubs.  That said, as a Lawyer I need to be sure everyone has filled out a waiver to protect the organizations from liabilities.  Motorcycles can be dangerous (so are bees and horses) so we need a release form signed.  If you plan on joining the ride at any point on the route, I will need to get your release form.  The fee for the ride is $26.50, which you can pay when you jump on or mail it to me (mail checks not cash) but I need the release form as soon as possible so we know how many people will be participating.  You can get a copy of the release form here  RPMParticipantRelease_Final


Please get it to me by Tuesday March 21

Donations Update Almost There

We are just over a week away from the ride.  Our donations have been coming in and we are almost at our goal of $5,000.  As of this morning we have pledges of $3,615 of which we have collected $2,744.  We need $1,385 to meet our goal.  Please fill out the attached donation form by clicking: RPMPledgeFLYERFORM  then email it to the form to me at the email on the form.

Remember your donations will 1) help children avoid getting polio in their life times, 2) be tax deductible to you and 3) be matched 2:1 by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.  Lets get this done.

You can follow our progress at our Rotary District 5930’s website

Until next time,  JMD

OOPS!!! I missed a city. Alice I’m sorry, I will be there.

It happens to all of us.  I made a mistake.  Hopefully it is the only one.  I will be traveling to Alice from Beeville then on to Freer.  I am getting excited about this trip and I can wait to get started.

After correcting the error we are up to 819 miles in 2 days.  We are working hard to get the link for donations going and to get details for check writers.

Thanks for all the supportive comments I have received.
