ImageNEW MEMBER CLASS TO BE HELD

If you have not had a chance to attend a new member class, Thursday is your day.  New(er) members are encouraged to attend one of two on-going trainings hosted by the Club Membership Committee.  Rotary 101 and 102 are intended as an introduction to the Club.  Rotary 101 will be held at noon on August 28 at the Club offices.  This is a brown bag lunch, so bring your own bag.  101 covers the History and Operations of the Club.  Please contact the office if you will be attending.

ImageColumbus Rotary began recognizing member participation in addition to attendance at weekly luncheons using a program called Touch Points. To date participation in events other than weekly meetings were recorded only when information was made available to the club office. This will not change, however, members can now record their participation easily by going to the website www.ColumbusRotary.org. Relatively, the Touch Points will be awarded to members as follows:

•       1 touch point for attendance at weekly meetings, club socials, project/committee/Board/District/RI meetings, etc.
•       2 touch points for being an active volunteer at a Rotary function, chair committee/meetings, etc.
•       3 touch points for contributing at least $250 to Columbus Foundation or Paul Harris fellow, $100 to the RI foundation/Polio Plus or other fund raisers
•       4 touch points for every new member you sponsor that joins the club and pays dues for at least one year

For every Rotarian that achieves 52 touch points in a Rotary year, a “Perfect Participation” award will be made. This award will be added to our annual Perfect Attendance Awards. Recognition will be similar to the Perfect Attendance recognition.  

The awarding of Touch Points will be on the honor system. Each member determines the number of TPs they are eligible for and submits this information to the club on the club website. Doug Gouty, First Vice President Tricia Strahler and Scott Brown have made entering this data easy on the club website. I am sure there will be issues and we will use this year to evaluate and change as needed. Please bear with us as we are going through this change.

The following members and their families need your cares, concerns and prayers.

Nancy Smith's husband suffered a stroke Monday, August 18 and had an operation on Thursday the 21st.  He is now home and recovering.  She will not be able to participate in some Rotary meetings, events, and committees for a short while. 

Let the office know about other concerns that should be brought to our attention.

Right when we start to have our meetings shown on Ctv locally we find out that one of ours has gone national.  Image Jim Budros served as a guest chef on Man Fire Food on August 26.  Jim showed up in Kentucky with his mobile wood fired oven to make strawberry rhubarb cobbler for desert.

Most of us have heard of the ALS Ice bucket challenge by now.   Rotarian Bob Kaynes wanted to share his unique twist on the challenge with you.

A number of members have asked about a sustaining member program that would help to support the Club.  With this in mind the Club Board approved an initiative to answer these questions. 

The Rock of Gibraltar has stood through time as a bastion of support and defense.  Like Gibraltar, Columbus Rotary’s 1912 Society has been created for the same purpose; to support our century old organization.  A $250 (non-deductible) contribution to Columbus Rotary will assist in sustaining our Club operations and offices.  Your donation will be recognized with a Flag of Gibraltar lapel pin.  

For questions or additional information, please contact Executive Director Scott Brown.

ImageIn the coming weeks you may see yourself or our Rotary Program on TV.  Columbus Television, Ctv, is our local government station that covers council meetings and other events.  They will be visiting us Monday with their cameras.  If all goes well you may be able to catch us on TV or on-line in the future.  

ImageIf you miss a program on Ctv, your local government Channel, you can always catch the program later on the Columbus Rotary You Tube channel.  Go to our webpage and click the You Tube logo and watch the program you missed. 

And yes, that would count as a Touch Point!  Log that in via our website too.
