Need better Ideas...
The 4th of July Parade will be upon us in a month, and we need a really good theme for our Club's float by June 24th.
It is good to know that so many of you read the bulletin. We appreciate that many of you didn't care for the first theme, so this week you will get the option of retiring it in favor of Option 2 which has been suggested by Bill Thiele. However the purpose of the competition is to keep arriving at a better idea each week, until time runs out. For that to happen, we need you to submit an even better idea. So start your creative juices flowing and come up with an even better idea. Your ideas should be sent to Bill Thiele ( email@example.com ).
This week you will get to choose between last week's idea (Option #1) and a new idea (option #2). We will do a quick hand vote at the meeting on Friday (June 3rd) to see which idea survives to compete the next week. But here's the catch, someone needs to come up with an even better idea.
As a quick summary, here are the two current ideas for the float.
Option #1 (Serving Humanity)
3 Cannibals cooking a person dressed in Safari garb in a large kettle. The Cannaibals are each wearing a large Rotary medallion around their necks. A banner/sign proclaims the RI slogan for 2016-2017 "Rotary Serving Hummanity"
Option #2 (Rotary: Helping to End Polio)
Road side sign post (like that used in the hit TV series Mash) with arrows pointing to Pakistan and Afghanistan, with Rotarians administering Polio vaccines. Banner or a sign saying something like "Rotary, helping to end Polio"

Last minute Volunteers...
Please email Rick otness ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) if your schedule has changed and you can now volunteer from 9 AM to 1 Pm on this Friday (June 3, 2016) to be a buddy of a special needs child at the SuperKids event for the Soapbox Derby. As you will recall the Rotary Club of Dunwoody is sponsoring this event for Special Needs children. The children will get to race in actual Soapbox derby cars with the cars driver. This is an exciting event for the special needs kids.
We signed up a number of volunteers to pair up (one on one) with a special needs child. Some of those initial volunteers have had last minute changes in their schedules which have caused them to be unable to volunteer. We are looking for a couple of volunteers who may have wanted to volunteer, originally had conflicts with their schedules, but now happily find themselves available.
- Align with the Rotary Club of Dunwoody service focus – Public Health, Public Safety, and Education, both locally and globally.
- Build, expand, and leverage relationships with community partners aligning financial support with Rotarian volunteer support/opportunities where possible.
- Extent to which project will have sustainable impact in the community served, locally or globally.
Perhaps the best known four points in Rotary are those of The Four Way Test:
Of the things we think, say or do
1.Is it the TRUTH?
2.Is it FAIR to all concerned?
3.Will it build GOODWILL and BETTER FRIENDSHIPS?
4.Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?
