President Carola has set the bar pretty high for her year in terms of the Club Goals she has set with Rotary International:
GOALS…30 members  (current 22)
10 new members  (In other words, don't lose more than 2 to get 30 at end of year)
3 people participating in Rotarian Action Groups
5 people in participating in Leadership Development at the district level
10 attending the district conference
3 in Rotary Fellowships (already there)
8 in District Training
She also has Board approval for a lot of new projects (more to come later on this topic)... including the following listed in the Rotary Area of Focus:
1.Opening the World scholarships.
2. Noushin Sharif-Murphy Interact scholarships post-secondary
3 Senior Financial Counseling (both coming up in the Civic Center and proposed for the Canal)
4. San Rafael High School Interact Club Support
5. Start a Rotaract Club at COM
6. Provide Dictionaries to 3rd graders
7.  Support school gardens
1. Supporting Family Services Agency holiday giving program
2.  Work to end sex trafficking in Marin
1  Shelterbox support
2  Tree planting next Spring in honor of Earth Day (Samuel P Taylor Park)   (promoting peace???)
3.  Supporting End Polio Now campaign.
so we are working in 3 of the 6 areas of focus.  We also may also use District Directed Funds for clean water (PROVIDING CLEAN WATER, SANITATION, or HYGIENE, or GROWING LOCAL ECONOMIES (microcredit)
Finally, Carola asked all of us to come up with Social Projects and functions we wanted to have this year.  She will report on that next time!
