We enjoyed welcoming Daniel Cort, Main Stage Community Theatre, as our guest last week. Daniel shared his personal story of what led him to being involved and passionate about Main Stage Community Theatre.
“To watch children mature and have a spark in their eyes is magical after seeing how they enter the theatre so nervous.” ~ Daniel Cort

To help increase our social presence, we will begin featuring Rotarians and their WHY!  Please respond to this email or directly email Natalie Osterman with an answer to one of the questions below and a headshot that can be used.
1. What does Rotary mean to you?
2. What is your favorite service project that the Rotary Club of Bluffton participates in/does?
3. Why did you choose to be part of Rotary?
Do you worry about Alzheimer’s?  We do not have a cure for Alzheimer’s disease, but we must find one.  Finding a cure starts with you.  Every year the CART (Coins for Alzheimer’s Research Trust) Fund gives research grants focused on finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease. 
Have you given to the CART Fund this year?  The CART Fund is dedicated to raising funds to provide “seed” money for cutting edge, high impact research in hopes of finding a cure/prevention for Alzheimer’s disease.  The goal of the CART Fund is to encourage exploratory and developmental Alzheimer’s disease research projects within the United States. This is accomplished by providing financial support for the early and conceptual plans of those projects that may not yet be supported by extensive preliminary data but have the potential to substantially advance biomedical research. These projects should be distinct from those designed to increase knowledge in a well-established area unless they intend to extend previous discoveries toward new directions or applications.
