President's Message
Kenneth Courter

Good Day,

We had a great meeting last week.  Barbara Comstock handled herself well, especially in this political climate.  She is the last politico for awhile.  Good to have politicians give us their talking points. 
On a separate note, I’ve been trying to get a neighbor to visit the club.  How ironic that he now wants me to connect him to someone in the community for work.  If he was engaged and active in the community, I’m sure he would have had his own contacts and acquaintances.
I need your help with the Food Drive.  I’ll have donation boxes at the meeting for you to place at your home or business.  Let’s work to hit a 10,000 pound goal and a $10,000 donation to the Rotary Club of Ashburn Foundation to award high school children scholarships. Ask friends and family to help.  You’ll be surprised at everyone’s generosity.  Today I delivered 100 pounds of non perishable food to Loudoun Hunger Relief from Body by Wayne.
Blood Drive is April 28th at the Sterling Community Center.  We are also helping provide free health care to the disadvantaged in Loudoun.  Signup today! 
Yours in service, 
Ken Courter, President, Rotary Club of Ashburn, VA

Clean Water Project
The Rotary Club of Ashburn is raising funds to bring clean water to Ghana in West Africa. 
The boreholes in Zuarungu Torson and Wakii in the Bolgatanga Municipal district is estimated to serve a combined 850 people. Rotary global grant 17-57675 will provide communities with clean water and sanitation with improved hygiene in the Bolgatanga area of the Upper East Region in Ghana. 

Our goal is to provide communities with twenty-three boreholes (deep wells), three small town water systems and two hundred and seventy-five new Microflush toilets with hand washing sinks. The new Microflush toilets will be provided to schools and homes to increase awareness and use of the new sanitation technology. We also want to develop training videos and materials to teach new Microflush toilet makers. The project budget is $200,000. The result of not having access to clean drinking water can caused widespread disease resulting in the inability for those affected to work or support themselves. The project is anticipated to begin in summer 2018 through finish in 2019.
The Four-Way Test

The Four-Way Test is a nonpartisan and nonsectarian ethical guide for Rotarians to use for their personal and professional relationships. The test has been translated into more than 100 languages, and Rotarians recite it at club meetings:

Of the things we think, say or do

  1. Is it the TRUTH?
  2. Is it FAIR to all concerned?
  4. Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
The 2018 convention offers a variety of events to ensure that you make the most of your time in Toronto. Check out the RI website at and start planning your convention activities.
