Oshawa Rotarian Ted Morrison was the speaker at Bowmanville Rotary's August 6th, 2019 meeting.  Ted's message was a challenge to all Rotarians in District 7070 to give $1,000,000 to The Rotary Foundation (TRF) this year in memory of Cobourg Rotarian Bill Patchett.
 
Bill Patchett was a consummate Rotarian who, through his charm, wit, and unceasing efforts as District Chair of TRF, cajoled District 7070 into becoming one of the top contributors in North America to The Rotary Foundation.  The "Bill Patchett Salute" became a friendly way of teasing Bill.
 
Bill will be dearly missed by those who knew and admired him.  Bill's obituary may be found by following this link.
