Yours in Rotary,
The good news and the bad news is we sold out of Full Ride tickets for Rotary Night at the Rodeo Thursday March 12 performance. However, the other good news is we still have Dinner Only tickets available for $30 that can be ordered online at the District 5890 website or purchased at the door, while the supply lasts. We have 73 Dinner Only tickets available as of right now. This means if you if you didn’t get in on the Full Ride tickets, you can still attend our social, have a wonderful Fiesta Dinner Buffet, and have some great fellowship with other Rotarians from 4:30pm to 7:00pm (as well as counting as a make-up) by making other arrangements to come through the grounds entry gate. You can purchase HLSR performance tickets through their website (only a few upper level tickets remain), purchase a day pass at the gate good for everywhere except the Stadium for $10, or already have a season ticket or badge entry privileges. If you have any questions, please contact John Cotterell at firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 281-496-6666.
I would like to give a summary on what we are attempting to accomplish with the Visioning Process.
Before I starting to serve as president, I asked to meet with Lisa, David, Scott, and Rod. I discussed with them some of the goals I wanted to achieve in my year as president. One of the more ambitious goals was to consider, approve, and implement a long term local project.
By long term we are talking over the period of three to four years. By local we are talking about the possibility of involving municipalities, industry, etc by forming an alliance with them to help them solve some of their issues as well.
What this might end up being is still up for discussion. This is why we want and need the involvement of 25+ club members.
At the meeting we were in agreement in trying to accomplish this. So this is something I want to do to as well as the next two presidents. Plus, David Nicks, our treasurer, is also in favor (as well as Lisa).
Where this may end up is anyone’s guess. This is why we need club participation and buy in.
Just so you may understand what type and size of project we are considering, David (and others, but David is the Visioning Chair) and I have thrown around the possibility of building a facility where we can conduct out meetings and have a facility to help other local nonprofits and/or industry. As you can quickly determine, this is a large project that could end up needing millions of dollars.
I mention these things so each of us can see the importance of being involved with David. We need your input. And look at the skill set we have in our club - bankers, builders, architects, project managers, industry reps, and so much more. If we get behind something we ALL believe in we can accomplish great things. GREAT things!
I will end by stating we are in a healthy position financially. Of course, we do not have millions sitting in the bank but we can leverage the assets, cash and otherwise, in our club to move mountains.
I need your buy in. Get with David and tell him you will be there.
- An immediate measure of progress will be the members’ pledge and willingness to move the planning processes from a nice-to-do concept to meaningful growth programs for the club, its members, and its community.
- The second is that the output from this session is woven into the annual plans of the incoming and succeeding presidents. It will be reflected in the continuity and consistency of programming and leadership in your Club.
- Finally, the long-term mark of accomplishment will be at the end of 5 years when your club advances from where it is to where it wants to be.
