GoodSearch / dailygood WORKS!

Here's a great way to benefit the Rotary Club of Inverness while you're conducting normal internet business. Use dailygood (also known as Goodsearch) for your default search engine or for online buying. This site gives half its advertiser-earned revenue to charitable causes.

 

The Rotary Club of Inverness (our charitable foundation) is a registered charity on the site. Go to www.GoodSearch.com or www.dailygood.com and make our Rotary club your charity of choice! Then use GoodSearch's search engine [powered by Yahoo] for your web searches every day.

 

We get an estimated penny per search, which can really add up for our charitable funds. In addition, we can get a percentage of every purchase you make with participating retailers when you use goodshop or gooddining -- so many ways to help raise funds while you're going about your normal business. Get started today!

 This year in Whispering Pines Park
 

It was an ambitious project, but one that will benefit all trail users in Whispering Pines Park. The Rotary Club of Inverness, with assistance from a District Grant and its own club member fundraising, has worked with the City of Inverness on new wayfinding signage for all the trails within this 290-acre park.and installing benches at strategic points along the way.

 

Our teams built the signage and conducted workdays to install signs on all the trails in the 290-acre park. The city staff managed installation of behnches at strategic points. The Rotary Club of Inverness thanks City project manager Ron Hodges and other City staff for assistance, plus all the Rotarians, friends and family who helped make this project a success. We are pleased to play an important part in beautifying and improving the functionality of Whispering Pines Park.

tell others about Rotary. Thanks to all who attended

and who made this gathering so successful.
