El Tour De Tucson - November 20, 2021
One of the things that Rotarians are most proud of is our fight to eradicate Polio.  Arizona Rotarians in District 5500  (the southern part of Arizona) are very proud to host the largest fundraising event to raise funds to support the fight to end polio.

Help Wanted!! - We Need Your Story
You are very likely receiving this newsletter because you received a vocational education grant from The Rotary Vocational Fund of Arizona.  
The funds we use to provide grants like the one you benefitted from all come from donations.  Donors like to see the results of their investment in your education.  When they see good results, they are motivated to donate again and again.
Please send us a current photo of yourself, including your family if you like.  Please tell us your story about how your vocational education grant has changed your quality of life.  CLICK HERE to send your name, a brief story, and a photo.  We know you did not study creative writing with our grant, so don't worry about putting together a perfectly written story.  Our editorial team should be able to fix spelling, punctuation, or grammatical errors.
The donations your story will inspire will help others receive vocational education grants from TRVFA.
