I hope all of you have enjoyed our great summer weather! As we return to the activities of the fall, we have a great number of Rotary events to keep in mind. Here’s a sample. For the full list, see the calendar on the bottom of this page on the left side.
Next Generation Summit, Saturday morning September 24. A district-wide gathering to hear the latest research on young professional’s attitudes about Rotary and community service, and discussions of ways to attract younger members. This event is for all Rotarians interested in expanding membership to young professionals. Register on our website.
Membership/Public Relations Summit, Saturday morning October 29, at the Clifton Park-Halfmoon Library on Moe Road. An opportunity for Rotarians to come together for presentations on membership and public relations by our great district committees. Registration to be open soon on our website.
Rotary Foundation Centennial Dinner, Thursday evening November 17, Saratoga National Golf Club. Come and celebrate 100 years of the Rotary Foundation and Saratoga Springs. This is our major Foundation event during this centennial year so please save the date. Registration information available soon.
Lastly, with the help of Dawn Vavala from Twin Bridges Rotary, we are selling Rotary Serving Humanity T-shirts. I will be bringing samples to clubs at my DG visits. The T-shirts cost $20 and come in both women’s and men’s sizes. Everyone who purchases a T-shirt will have a $10 donation credited to their Paul Harris accounts. We hope to sell 400 and make a $4000 donation to the Foundation. Our thanks to Dawn for bringing this idea to us and for providing the T-shirts to us at her cost.
Have a great September!
DG John Mucha
Something for every Rotarian
For the first time in 5 years, the Rotary International Convention returns to the USA! It will be held in Atlanta, and will feature a celebration of the Rotary Foundation Centennial. If you have never been to a Rotary International Convention, this is a great time to do it. You will have a chance to meet Rotarians from over 130 countries, and make new Rotary friends while renewing old acquaintances. In addition, you will hear about exciting club projects from around the world and share what your club is doing. The general and breakout sessions are world class and the House of Friendship offers amazing chances to learn and share. We hope that 40 to 50 Rotarians and guests will attend from District 7190. Register soon since this will be a truly popular Convention!
The Foundation is a not-for-profit corporation supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and friends of the Foundation who share its vision of a better world.
