Rotary Network
I've copied and pasted the verbiage from Governor Lyle's email that was sent earlier this morning. This is a great opportunity for you to get your business listed in the Rotary Business Directory. Simply click on the link below to add your establishment to the list:
"You might have heard that our District is partnering with D6450 and Rotary International on a pilot of a new opportunity for our members: The Rotary Network.
Rotary began as an opportunity for fellowship and to build business relationships that, ideally, would be advantageous to both parties.  The Rotary Network is solution for today, a way for Rotarians to help other Rotarians, and that's particularly welcome in these challenging times.  You and other Rotarians might be anxious about their business, or be looking for advice, connections, or even information about changing careers.  That's why The Rotary Network was created.  See the attached flyer and this video to learn more.
And if you're like me, retired, The Rotary Network is for you, too!  You can share your experience with other Rotarians, or provide guidance to a member that is looking for a change.  It's another way for us to be of service.
Please take a few minutes to check out, and then list your business, add your comments, sign up as a mentor, or suggest other resources we should add.  The Rotary Network will only be as good as we together make it!"

On-Line Makeups!
Need a makeup but find it difficult to get to another club? If so, consider using Rotary's Web-based Rotary eClub One. Click on the link and go to the "Makeups" tab to get started. Doing makeups could be easier. Let us know how you like it.
Rotary Action & Fellowship Groups
Rotarian Action Groups are autonomous groups of Rotarians, family members, program participants and alumni who are experts in a particular field, such as micro-credit or water and sanitation. More information about these groups and their purpose can be found on RI's website.

Rotary Fellowships are independent groups of Rotarians, family members, program participants and alumni who share a common passion. Being part of a fellowship is a fun way to make friends from around the world.  Again, more detailed information is available at this link to RI's website.  

If you haven't all ready done so, take the time to click on the two links above and see if there may be a group that fits with your interests.  It's a great way to make new friends and to share common interests with Rotarians from around the world.
