“Vote with your Wallet” to fund scholarships update: 

As of 05/23/13 we have received $6097 with another $600 pledged, for a total of $6697.  This is still anticipated to increase, so let’s see if we can meet or surpass $7000!  What has been received and/or pledged has come from 41 members or 51% of our active members.  Continued nice work, let’s finish strong!

Spread the word!  If you know someone who is interested in membership, our newly reformatted application (now a fillable pdf) is found in the downloads section of the website or directly by clicking here.

Celebrate Rotary Awareness Month by training members on Rotary history, programs, or how to raise awareness of your club’s projects among your community. Or, ask members to share a personal story or experience that they have had because of Rotary. Every Rotarian has a Rotary story that can be educational and inspiring. The beginning of a new year is a good opportunity to renew inspiration for the rest of the Rotary year.
