Light Up Rotary

    Although it sounds a little like a marketing pitch for a new brand of Asian cigarettes, "Light Up Rotary" is actually the 2014-2015 theme for Rotary International, introduced recently by RI President Elect Gary Huang of Taipei, Taiwan. He reminds us that Confucius once said "It is better to light a single candle than to sit and curse the darkness". It's a good metaphor for how we live and work in Rotary. As each of us does a little, collectively we achieve great things that make a very positive difference for our world.

    What have you done for Rotary lately? We are indeed fortunate to be members of an outstanding Rotary club in a great district, so you have many ready made existing opportunities for immediate involvement to match your interests and abilities. Most of us don't stop at a single candle - we light a few and burn some at both ends! Current service projects include our Four Way Test group discussions with more than 250 seventh grade students at Summit Middle School on May 8 and 9 (see Jeff McElhattan or Gary Nicholds), interviews, selection, and counseling for this summer's RYLA (see Rolo Cuadrado or Stephanie Katz), and preparation of host families and Rotarian counselors for three new Youth Exchange students arriving in early August (see Asa Armstrong). Two upcoming and very important fundraising projects are the Car Raffle (see Steve Cornwell or Jim Brook) and the newly rebranded Festival in the Park (see Betty Naftz or Rob Irvine). I hope to see you all there!

We want to thank all of those sponsors who are identifying community leaders/business professionals and bringing them to our meetings.  Remember, a Prospective Member should attend 3 meetings before turning in their application, sponsor form, a short bio and $100 application fee to Debra Irvine.  The application will then be presented to the Membership Committee for approval and then the Board of Directors.  Once approved their name and bio will be posted in our bulletin for 3 weeks.  If there are no questions about the Prospective Member the induction will be scheduled. 

If you would like to be a Mentor to a new member please see Ann Clement.  We encourage new members to interact with Prospective/New Members as much as possible.  One of the Red Badge requirements is to be a Greeter 3 times.  Because our club is growing and we are experiencing so many guests, greeters are so very important.  You don't have to be a new member to be a greeter.  It is just one more way of participating in Club Service.

When you do business with a Corporate Partner, thank them for being a Rotary Sponsor!
