She is recognized for her strong leadership and effective management skills, her extensive experience in advocacy and knowledge of how government works.  Kerr has many years of experience in campaign management, all areas of fundraising, public speaking and advocacy.  She graduated from the Ohio State University in 1979 with a B.A. in Journalism.

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

John Nganga (pronounced na-na) will undergo prostate surgery on October 7.  John is the driving force behind the Rafiki Orphanage.  It was a discussion between John and Terry Davis that brought the project to us 10 years ago. 

Bob Smith's sister in law has been moved to hospice.  Bob will be traveling to Iowa to be with her and family. 

Ray Bostic will receive a "lube job" (his words) on his knees at the end of the month.  He will also have an ablation to numb nerves in his back.  This is all to help him become more mobile. 

As some of you know Ron Kyser has been awaiting a call for a liver transplant.   That call came on August 26.  Ron is recovering at Cleveland Clinic after his surgery last week. Ron's recovery can be followed here on his Caring Bridge page.  Cards and messages can be sent to his home.  He called the office and related the news and that he would be in Cleveland for up to 10 weeks for Recovery.   

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.

On September 12 a group of elite shooters from Columbus Rotary gathered at Lake Hill Club for an event that was crowned The Columbus Rotary Skeet World Championships.   Dan Pickett was awarded the championship with a nearly perfect 2nd round.  Tim Norris provided a one shot "jinx" because he mentioned said perfect score once too often.

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.
