Good afternoon, Rotarians!
 
For those of you who are on Facebook, I’m writing to ask for your help. (Don’t worry – it will be easy!)
 
In early March, District 6040 is sending a team of Rotarians on a month+ long Group Study Exchange (GSE) trip to Australia. It will be a phenomenal experience that will spread understanding and good will.
 
How can you help? Please like the Team on Facebook!
Simply go to https://www.facebook.com/Rotary6040GSE/  and “like” the page.
 
(There isn’t much there, yet! Don’t be discouraged!)  When the team begins posting their status, their preparations, their progress and their experiences, you’ll receive their posts on your Facebook account.  
 
When you see the posts, please “Like, Share and Comment" on their activities. This will help to spread the word about this trip, as well as get the word out into our communities throughout the District about Rotary activities. (This is what “Social Media” is all about – and will really help the District get exposure throughout northern Missouri!)
 
Thank you for your help!
 
Best regards,
 
Kirby
