The Rotary theme for August is "Membership and Extension".   (Extension refers to the chartering of new clubs). 

Service organizations depend on stable robust membership in order to do the important projects that add so much to their communities and that are so vital to making the world a better place. Rotary is no different.  Membership and the chartering of new clubs are important to the overall success of Rotary. 

So, how do we attract new members while retaining our existing members It has been challenging to get the message out to the public regarding what Rotary represents and the good that Rotary does worldwide.  Rotarians seem to be a modest group - we are proud of what we do, but we have not been able to effectively advertise our accomplishments. 

My feeling is that active, vibrant clubs with ongoing community projects will attract members Community projects, where Rotarians are seen to be working in the best interests of their community, may entice people to ask about Rotary and maybe even ask about membership.  Please be willing to talk with family, friends and co-workers about the great work of Rotary.  You may be able to recognize those individuals who might be susceptible to catching the Rotary bug. 

It would be great if all Rotarians would show their commitment by wearing a Rotary pin or ‘mark’ every day.  At the Rotary Leadership Institute several years ago, I made a commitment to wearing Rotary insignia whenever I leave home.  A bumper sticker or the Rotary Wheel on your car or motorcycle, or Rotary insignia on your bicycle, shirt, hat or jacket are simple ways to advertise Rotary and to show your commitment. 

Let’s have some fun.  How many Rotary Wheels do I have on my vehicle?  Email me your answer (norm@netidea.com) and the first 10 correct entries, will receive a Rotary bumper sticker and a ‘Light Up Rotary’ pin. 

Finally, membership and fellowship go hand-in-hand.    When Rotarians are active and engaged in a club that offers great fellowship activities, they become part of the family of Rotary.  The feeling of family, belonging, and having the opportunity to make a positive difference in people's lives, is the best feeling in the world and the most powerful way to attract new members.

Hi Rotary friends:

Many of you are not aware of the opportunity and enjoyment provided through Rotary Fellowships and Action Groups (RAGs).  Below is a reprint from the recent International Travel and Hosting Fellowship (ITHF) Newsletter.  It provides just one example of how you can travel the world at greatly reduced costs through Rotary colleagues.  There are a variety of interest groups available based on hobbies or vocations, so you can engage and enjoy your Rotary involvement by searching www.rotary.org for a RAG or Fellowship of interest to you.

District Governor Elect, Mike Dalessi, shared opening remarks at RLYA on June 28th, 2014 and shared a picture of Counsellors Sheila Hart and Mike Cassidy.  There were 49 young adult campers participating plus the staff. Despite the thunder and pouring rain on opening day, everyone had a fabulous and fun time. ​ Does anyone else have some pictures?
