Dear Rotary Leaders,
I’m pleased to introduce Rotary Global Rewards – a new member benefit program that offers discounts on products and services like travel, hotels, dining and entertainment. Rotary Global Rewards is designed to make membership even more rewarding for Rotarians and is an exciting way Rotary can give back to those who give so much. Rotary Global Rewards help Rotarians:
- Do more good work - involve more members in or expand the impact of Rotary projects with savings on truck rentals, airfare or hotels
- Build Rotary friendships - forge richer friendships with fellow Rotarians with your dining and entertainment offers
- Share your story with someone new - tell people about Rotary's work with discounts at coffee shops and restaurants
With Rotary Global Rewards, the good you do comes back to you. I hope you will all find ways to take advantage of the benefits this program offers.
You can learn more and redeem Rotary Global Rewards at rotary.org/globalrewards

“We expect 2015 to be a breakout year for RunDunwoody,” says Rotary president Lorri Christopher. “The club anticipates 1000 runners to turn out on race day and, financially, we are off to a running start. As of June 30, more than 30 area businesses, led by Title Sponsor Northside Hospital, have offered their support, putting us over the $50,000 mark in sponsorships, with four months to go. We are grateful for the amazing generosity of our community’s businesses and citizens and look forward to celebrating with one and all on race day, in the community for the community.”
Registration for individuals is open at www.rundunwoody.net.
It’s time to RunDunwoody now – as a Sponsor, Friend of the Run, runner, walker or team! To learn more or to register for RunDunwoody 2015 go to www.rundunwoody.net.

Brothers and Sisters of District 6900,
I would like to personally welcome each of you to our exciting, memorable and challenging year of 2015-2016!
Words cannot express how excited I am to be your District Governor. This year will be most electrifying as we discover the difference each one of us will make following the direction of your Presidents and Officers. President Ravi is asking Rotary members to use their talents, expertise, and leadership in the coming year to transform the lives of others.
My wish is for every club to participate and earn the Governor’s Citation. In order to accomplish this, you simply follow the 17 steps. Some of these steps are really quite elementary and easily obtained! Let’s discover how we can solve the mysteries in Foundation giving, membership growth, Serving Seniors and Polio Plus, to name a few. I am confident each club member will find an appealing area of focus to serve. Whether you want to be involved in RYLA, Rotaract/Interact clubs, Serving Seniors, Aids Awareness, End Human Trafficking, or others, there will be a step for you.
Your Presidents and Officers will give you guidance along the way. Join your leaders, your World Class Team, and be a gift to your club, your community and “A Gift to the World”.
It’s time for us to unlock the mystery!
Yours in Rotary Service,
Calling all members.
Run Dunwoody wants to encourage the formation of teams, and we need your help in making this happen. We are interested in stimulating any preexisting rivalries and want your input on which rivalries to focus on and the best ways to trigger those rivalries. Some examples might be college rivalries, neighborhood competitions, or possibly strong business rivalries.
If you are part of a pre-existing rivalry, we want to know about it and get your thoughts on the best ways to trigger that rivalry, so that we can get more runners to sign up as a way of supporting their side of the rivalry.
Please email Rick Otness with your thoughts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
On Friday, April 17th, Kingsley was awarded the Principal’s Challenge Trophy for their participation in RunDunwoody14 with Rotary Members Kathy Brandt, Angie Duprey and Nancy Jester on hand to present the trophy during morning announcements. On May 15th, Rotarian Angie Duprey was able to volunteer at Kingsley’s end of year Field Day as the culmination of the Strong for Life Program, and this is where it came to her attention regarding a project in need of support.
Kingsley Charter’s Math Classroom needs remodeling and our help. Fifth grade educator, Ronn Colanino is looking to create a Super Math Lab for his students to create an ideal teaching and learning environment. His dream is to give his students a classroom they LOVE to be in, LOVE to learn in and one that can offer resources otherwise not available.
Please take a look at their funding page. www.Gofundme.com/shpf89h This school has many children in the English as a Second Language program, as well as 52% of the population qualify for free and reduced lunch. They NEED resources to create a better learning environment. This program will give students the best opportunity to succeed as they matriculate to Peachtree Charter Middle School and then on to Dunwoody High.
Principal Brent McBride and 5th grade teacher Ronn Colanino will be guests at our June 19th meeting, and they welcome any questions or comments regarding their project.
Thanks to Dottie Toney for her great work as the Caring Hands Chair as she hands over responsibilities to Carol Gage.
If you hear of a member celebrating a special event or in need of some special care, please pass along the information to Carol. She can be reached at (404) 376-3963 or emailed at email@example.com.
Blue and yellow cards will be on the tables at Friday meetings if you would like to jot down a quick note. Carol will be out of town during the month of July, so she will be assisted by Kemi A.
We look forward to working with you over the next two years as you experiment with some different alternatives. Your club should begin working over the next 30 days to start implementing changes on 1 July 2015.
Over the next few weeks you will receive more information regarding when and how your club will be evaluated and measured regarding the impact your innovation has on:
· membership types
· club operations
· member activities and engagement
· sustained membership growth and retention
· improved member diversity
· increased community and international service
· increased support of The Rotary Foundation
· overall club effectiveness
Good luck in your efforts over these next two years and thank you for agreeing to be a part of this exciting opportunity.

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?
