Bob Vaughn, Rotary District 6840 Grants Chair, was the speaker at the January 17, 2017, meeting of the Rotary Club of LaPlace.  He outlined the criteria and the selection process for awarding Rotary District Grants for club sponsored projects.  Bob indicated that the Rotary Club of LaPlace does a good job of meeting the grant criteria by being a substantial giver to the Rotary Foundation, being active in district sponsored programs, and providing matching funds from club fundraising.  If we continue our current performance, the club should continue to successfully receive district grants in the future.
