Our dictionary day at Dana Grey Elementary!
by Bosma, Tim

It came to pass that our Fort Bragg Rotarias delivered new dictonaries into the eager hands of the entire third grade class of Dana Grey Elementary school. This was a great day and there is nothing more satisfying than seeing  classroom full of excited faces waiting for their very own dictionary! Some kids had heard of this upcoming event from olde brothers or sisters and were the "expert" for their class. All in all, it was a perfect day to be a Rotarian in Fort Bragg!

Membership Development

New Member Procedure

New members are a vital part of any Rotary Club.

So that you will have an idea as to how to propose a new member and what is the process, here is the standard procedure from the new member proposal form. (Carl Sanders our Sergeant at Arms has them).

It is your responsibility as a proposer to follow up on this process.

The prospective member's name is submitted to the board of directors. (The board normally meets on the second week of the month)

The board ensures that the person is fully qualified and approves or disapproves the proposal within 30 days. The proposer is notified by the club secretary.

NOTE Until approval is granted, prospective members should not be informed that they have been proposed for membership.

After the approval has been announced, the prospective member is fully informed of privileges, expectations and responsibilities of club membership. He or she is then asked to complete the proposal form and give written permission to publish his or her name and proposed classification to the club membership.

If no objections to the proposal are received within seven days following the publication of the name, that person, upon payment of an admission fee, is a new Rotarian.

Normally the new member will be inducted at the next regular meeting.

It is your responsibility as a proposer to follow up on this process.
