Calling all Rotarians, Families and Friends. Come enjoy the early part of your day with us.
We need volunteers through out the day to help in the Rotary INFO booth, to act as timers for the Team Challenge and other small rolls. None of these rolls will require your assistance for the entire event. Contact Mark LaMonte or Scott Brown to volunteer.
Columbus Rotary began recognizing member participation in addition to attendance at weekly luncheons using a program called Touch Points. To date participation in events other than weekly meetings were recorded only when information was made available to the club office. This will not change, however, members can now record their participation easily by going to the website www.ColumbusRotary.org. Relatively, the Touch Points will be awarded to members as follows:
• 1 touch point for attendance at weekly meetings, club socials, project/committee/Board/District/RI meetings, etc.
• 2 touch points for being an active volunteer at a Rotary function, chair committee/meetings, etc.
• 3 touch points for contributing at least $250 to Columbus Foundation or Paul Harris fellow, $100 to the RI foundation/Polio Plus or other fund raisers
• 4 touch points for every new member you sponsor that joins the club and pays dues for at least one year
For every Rotarian that achieves 52 touch points in a Rotary year, a “Perfect Participation” award will be made. This award will be added to our annual Perfect Attendance Awards. Recognition will be similar to the Perfect Attendance recognition.
The awarding of Touch Points will be on the honor system. Each member determines the number of TPs they are eligible for and submits this information to the club on the club website. Doug Gouty, First Vice President Tricia Strahler and Scott Brown have made entering this data easy on the club website. I am sure there will be issues and we will use this year to evaluate and change as needed. Please bear with us as we are going through this change.
Columbus, Ohio – Ohio State University has been selected by the Pat Tillman Foundation as a University Partner in its Tillman Military Scholars program. The program provides educational scholarships for veterans, active-duty service members and their spouses. As part of the Tillman Military Scholars program, Ohio State joins an elite network of institutions providing innovative support services to our nation’s veterans and their families.
University Partners are chosen based on their ability to meet criteria that include a culture of support for veterans across the institution, specific support services for veterans and a significant military/veteran enrollment.
On July 9, 2012 President Jim Maniace announced to members attending the Club's Monday luncheon that this would be our last weekly meeting at the Hyatt Regency. Responding to a number of suggestions and positive comments from members and committees the Club Board voted to move the weekly meetings to The River Club at Confluence Park; 679 W. Spring Street as soon as possible.
Starting on July 16, 2012 the Club will meet weekly at the River Club. Large signature events, such as the Service Above Self Fair, will be held at the Hyatt Regency.
