Be A Gift To the World

 
 

4-Way Test

Of the things we think, say and do...
 
1.  Is it the truth?
2.  Is it fair to all concerned?
3.  Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
4.  Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
 

The Object of Rotary

The Object of Rotary is to encourage and foster the ideal of service as a basis of worthy enterprise and in particular, to encourage and foster:
  • the development of acquaintance as an opportunity for service;
  • high ethical standards in business and professions, the recognition of the worthiness of all useful occupations, and the dignifying of each Rotarian's occupation as an opportunity to service society;
  • The application of the ideal of service in each Rotarian's personal, business, and community life;
  • the advancement of international understanding, goodwill and peace through a world fellowship of business and professional persons united in the ideal of service.

August - Membership Month

     
     First, I would like to thank the 25 clubs that I visited during the month July.  You have been warm, welcoming and very engaging.  I’ve seen folks that I have not seen in a while and catching up has been fun.  Every cub has its own dynamic and I applaud those that honor that.  There are countless kinds of fundraisers throughout the year, so there is no lack of events to go to.   Support each other when and where you can.  I know I asked some questions and I appreciate the frank and honest answers. We can’t grow our clubs and district if we don’t know what is on your minds.

Newsletters and Rotary Resources:  Two new categories have been added to our "Site Pages" (right hand column).  Both of these areas should help keep you up to date on things that are happening  within our district, zone and RI.  Check back often for new postings.
 
 

 

New Year -- Now is the time to get your Youth Protection paperwork in order

     Club leadership is reminded that ANNUALLY, (best always after the change over on July 1, into the new Rotary year)  background record checks need to be done on Rotarians that are working one on one with youth (under the age of 30, per RI guidelines).  This year,  prior to October 1st, the fee is $10.00 / check / person.  After October 1st, the fee goes up to $14.95 per check.
     Additionally,  in order to have a background record check done -- new Rotarians/individuals on your list for Youth work (Club Youth Service Committee)  will need a NEW Volunteer Affidavit to be completed.  Rotarians who have submitted a Volunteer Affidavit within the last 3 years are good with their existing affidavit.  You can find the Volunteer Affidavit form  located on the D6270 website -- under site pages.
     Clubs with Rotary Youth Exchange Inbound students are held to a higher level of compliance because of the regulations.
     Have questions or need to check status?  Reach out to Bob Hosch at rhosch@wi.rr.com or John Scherer atjscherer@aldercompanies.com for assistance.
 

 

 Membership Month

August is Membership Month.  Rotarians join and stay with their clubs primarily because they seek opportunities for community service, fellowship, and friendship. Many of the non-Rotarians you know are looking for the same things. Invite them to help with your service projects, attend a networking night, or participate in a club get-together and help them see for themselves how Rotary connects leaders to make a positive change. Take a look at the pamphlet  "Strengthening Your Club's Membership"  (listed under "Site Pages" - rigth column)  Even if you find just one idea, it will be worth your time.  Plan ahead - August will be here before you know it!!!  
 

 

Don't Wait Too Long To Check This Out...

  Earn a Presidential Citation from President K.R. Ravindran. This year’s citation goals are measurable using the information your clubs provide online. Club and district officers can track a club’s progress toward its goals – and see where help is needed – by checking the new Presidential Citation reports.
