WEEK 5 WHAT THE ARCHITECT OF THE ROTARY FOUNDATION HAD TO SAY:  “The Rotary Foundation is not to build monuments of brick and stone.  If we work upon marble, it will perish; if we work on brass, time will efface it; if we rear temples they will crumble into dust; but if we work upon immortal minds, if we imbue them with the full meaning of the spirit of Rotary . . . we are engraving on those tablets something that will brighten all eternity.” 
 
Arch C. Klumph, President of Rotary International, 1916-1917
 
WEEK 6 IN 1945, THE WRITTEN OBJECTIVE FOR THE ROTARY FOUNDATION WAS:
  1. The Promotion of  The Rotary Foundation Fellowships for advanced study;
  2. The fostering of any tangible and effective projects which have as their purpose the furthering of better understanding and friendly relations between the peoples of different nations; and 
  3. The providing of emergency relief for Rotarians and their families wherever war or other disaster has brought general destruction and suffering.
THE ROTARY FOUNDATION CONTINUES TO DO “GOOD WORK” TODAY!
 

 
 
Yet another Rotary adventure is Adventures in History, the newest of the group. Adventures in History was begun in 2012 as a pilot project in Kingston, Ontario, sponsored originally by a couple of keen members of the Cataraqui-Kingston Rotary club. The idea behind it was to promote to youth, in an experiential way, the interesting and well established history of Kingston and the surrounding area in a unique format. In its second year, the Rotary Club of Kingston and the Kingston Frontenac club became partners. Students were recruited from local high schools to visit and listen to organizations promoting history. The goal was to see which of the organizations made the best case; at that point, the students would determine which organization or organizations would receive funding (from $100,000 imaginary “Rotary bucks”). After the awarding of the grant(s), students and organization delegates held a round table discussion which served to advance the cause of the organizations involved and further engage the students in real and practical applications of history.
 
 
 
 
Is your Rotary club making an impact in your community?  Whether your answer is yes or no, the impact your club is, or is not making, is probably having the same impact on membership.
 
When it comes to making an impact, is it really beneficial to all concerned to try to be beneficial to all concerned?  A huge mistake many clubs make is that they spread their resources over wide areas.  This is partly because club leaders want to be fair to as many local causes as possible and to all members as possible by supporting their pet causes. This conundrum weakens clubs’ abilities to make greater impacts and often causes problems within the club. 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I saw a very interesting conversation yesterday online in response to the new image that says, "The world needs more Rotarians." A non-Rotarian questioned whether that was really true because no one had ever asked him to join a Rotary club.
 
So maybe our first step in membership month is to ask our members to focus on INTENTIONAL INVITES to our weekly meetings. Would more guests mean more prospective members? ‪#‎wearerotary
 

 
The New Member Sponsor Recognition Program is an exciting new initiative approved by the Rotary International Board of Directors. It honors Rotary members who sponsor new members. All sponsors of members admitted to Rotary on or after 1 July 2013 are eligible to receive a specially designed membership pin and colored pin backer from Rotary in recognition of their commitment to the organization’s membership growth. A current member who sponsors a new member will receive a recognition pin with a colored backer (blue, bronze, silver or gold)  to signify the sponsor’s achievement.
