Beginning Tuesday, September 2, the Covington Rotary Club will return to Downtown Covington. Beginning at 11:45am, Covington Rotarians, guests, and prospective members are invited to join us for fellowship at The Seiler Bar. While we have thoroughly enjoyed our time and our meals at Dakota Restaurant, we have felt separated from our home base in the Covington community.
We will hold our regular meetings with guest speakers on the 1st and 3rd Tuesdays of every month, with fellowship beginning at 11:45 and the meetings beginning promptly at noon and ending promptly at 1pm, with fellowship encouraged among those whose schedules allow them to linger a while in good company.
All professionals in the Covington community are invited to attend a meeting; those who feel aligned with the Rotarian ideals of business ethics, philanthropy and Service Above Self are encouraged to meet with a member or our Membership Chair to discuss what it means to become a Rotarian. We hope that the return to Downtown will help us increase our membership, visibility, and impact on our local community, our community partners, and the world.
This is just one facet of the renewed Covington Rotary Club to get excited about! We hope current, past, and future members will visit us soon and join us in our Community, Club, Vocational, Youth, and International Service.
Susan Bonnett of the Northshore Community Foundation is our speaker on Tuesday, August 19. While she is our presenter, this is also a meeting about how we can participate in the NCF to strengthen our own Covington Rotary Foundation. We have been successful over the years in always raising enough money to provide for Feeding the Needy, our scholarships, and our support of local and international family health, relief and peace-keeping initiatives. However, we have not necessarily capitalized on our own resources to plan for the future. This meeting is intended to spark discussion within the club as to the best way to bolster our Foundation and partner with other agencies to maximize our capacity to do good.
This meeting will also serve as a reminder that our own District Governor, Brian Hall, has asked us to increase our donations to the Rotary Foundation, which has a 4 Star Rating (the highest possible) by the Charity Navigator. By becoming Sustaining Members of the Rotary Foundation ($100 each fiscal year), we have a direct and measurable impact on the health of communities here and abroad.
Please come today ready to increase the impact of the Covington Rotary Foundation and the Rotary Foundation. Remember to find out if your company or that of your spouse has a matching program.
