Summit Rotary News
Last Week in Rotary
Marylin Hogan led us off with the inspiration this week.
We then heard from the Yes on 1A folks as a pause for the cause. To learn more about this initiative, you can check out the PowerPoint presentation on our club runner website (located on the lower right side, labeled as SFSF)
Bill Sanders highlighted the Summit Daily News Page and noted all of the good that Rotary does, and that those good works take money. A lot of that money comes from Sponsorhsips, and we thank Bill for his efforts in getting those businesses to support our club. Joni Ellis furthered that sentiment and connected the dots for us, mentioning that things such as youth exchange, RYLA, Community Dinner, dictionaries, the 4 way test and more are all supported by sponsors and by our fundraising efforts. If we want to keep doing good, we need to just say yes when it comes to fundraising efforts!
Sandy Mortenson will be hosting an orientation for new members on November 19th. All Rotarians are welcome to join, it is sure to be a good and informative time. Those new members with Red Badges should plan to attend. It is also a great opportunity for prospective members to learn more about Rotary!
Julieanne Gilchrist will be holding a Membership Committee meeting on October 22 at Carlos Miguels. Interested in joining or curious about the committee? Talk to Juileanne.
Doug Berg gave a classification talk. We learned about how to ski with only 150 vertical feet, but more importantly got to learn about a touching relationship with a friend battling cancer, and an inspirational book called Getting Well Again.
In case you hadn't heard, Bob and Nancy Follet are being honored at a special NRO dinner on October 21st. Interested in attending? Contact the NRO. We really do have some amazing members in our club!
SAVE THE DATE!!! Our holiday party will be held on December 17th! We will be meeting on the 16th at our regular time and place, but the meeting on December 23rd will be canceled.
Art Burger entertained us with the story of his camping adventures at the 100th Anniversary of a Rotary Fellowship in Chicago. Paul Harris sported the hat from that event this week.
Aleyna, our exchange student from Turkey, again won the raffle, but with 52 new shiny cards to choose from, she was not able to pick the Ace out. The Big Pot is over $900!
We then heard a wonderful presentation from our District Governor, Peter Ewing. It is truly inspiring to be a member of Rotary!
Next week we have the pleasure of hearing from Nathan Woodliff-Stanley from the ACLU. (If you have folks that would like to attend that talk, please let Peggy know so that she can plan for the extra guests).
We are back at our regular Senior Center meeting spot next week! All is right with the world.
Our satellite meetings are held from 5:30 - 6:45 pm on the first and third Mondays of every month in a private room in the Backcountry Brewery, corner of Main St and Hwy 9 / Summit Blvd in Frisco. All Rotarians are welcome and we hope that you'll invite your friends and colleagues to check us out as well! No advance notice needed.
Every second Wednesday of the month, Rotarians have been gathering for Happy Hour from 5:00 to 6:30. If you haven't checked it out, pencil it in and come by and socialize, on one or any of the following dates... SEE YOU THERE!
Our next Happy Hour will be:
The Happy Hour Committee members are:
Judy Irwin, Julieanne Gilchrist, David Matthews, Aleda Kresge, Lynn Myers and Ann Clement. Some of us will be at each of the Happy Hours to welcome everyone. If you would like to be on the Happy Hour Committee, please contact Judy Irwin and/or Julieanne Gilchrist.
We want to thank all of those sponsors who are identifying community leaders/business professionals and bringing them to our meetings. Remember, a Prospective Member should attend 3 meetings before turning in their application, sponsor form, a short bio and $100 application fee to JULIEANNE GILCHRIST. The application will then be presented to the Membership Committee for approval and then the Board of Directors. Once approved their name and bio will be posted in our bulletin for 3 weeks. If there are no questions about the Prospective Member the induction will be scheduled.
If you would like to be a Mentor to a new member please see Ann Clement. We encourage new members to interact with Prospective/New Members as much as possible. One of the Red Badge requirements is to be a Greeter 3 times. Because our club is growing and we are experiencing so many guests, greeters are so very important. You don't have to be a new member to be a greeter. It is just one more way of participating in Club Service.
