Plan ahead for Rotary Foundation Month
 
November is Rotary Foundation Month. Here are six things you can do today to ensure your November events are a success:
Rotary Basketball is the principal entry-level basketball program in the Flathead Valley. We anticipate between 800 and 1,000 youngsters will participate in the program this year. Please visit our Kalispell Rotary Basketball Website for more information or to register online. 
4 Way Test – bringing its meaning to youth
Jack Davis has brought a great idea from his winter Rotary home in Arizona.  As Rotarians we have pledged to live the 4 Way Test.  Explaining its meaning to 1st and 2nd graders is our challenge.  A working committee has been organized.  We have had two successful meetings with kids at the Boys and Girls Club here in Kalispell.  Plans have been made to keep improving our presentations and meet with kids at Cayuse Prairie in the spring once we have had a chance to get our own materials together.  If you have interest contact myself or Wendy Marshall.

Joop Thiessen receives "Service Above Self" Award

At the District 5390 Conference, Joop Thiessen received the prestigious "Service Above Self" award.
 
Rotary’s highest honor recognizes Rotarians who demonstrate Rotary’s motto, Service Above Self, by volunteering their time and talents to help others.
 
The award is internationally competitive and is granted to no more than 150
Rotarians worldwide, and no more than one from each district, each year.
2017-18 Club Presidents. Mark your calendars for PETS. Your training will take place in Denver on February 24-26, 2017.

Dear Global Coalition Member,
 
Several things have happened since our coalition meeting on March 19.  I’ll apprise you of those before moving forward with recommendations.
 
 

Welcome to Rotary eClub One, the world's first web based Rotary club, where you can make-up your missed credit for attendance. 

There are great Rotary Videos available on YouTube and plenty of additional information on FaceBook.  Want to introduce prospective members to Rotary Basics?

Convention: City of peace
Though Atlanta has seen its share of violence and inequity over time, today it brims with reminders that there is another way. Get inspired while you’re visiting for the 2017 Rotary International Convention from 10 to 14 June. Take a short walk from the convention center to the Center for Civil and Human Rights. There, you can see the handwritten notes, speeches, and sermons of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., experience an interactive 1960s-era lunch counter “sit-in,” and learn more about persecuted groups all over the world. A streetcar will take you to the Martin Luther King Jr...
