At our July 9th meeting we discussed as a group fundraising ideas to bolster our club charity coffers.
 
Milena is working on a tasty idea to be presented at a later meeting.
 
The Zombie Haunted Park is going to be tabled at a future Area 4 meeting since it will be a volunteer intensive venture.
 
There was then a presentation of a fall event that the group thought worth developing.
A "Recycle Your Electronics" Collection Day tied in with a "Shred-it Community" Document Destruction Day. 
The concept is to advertise and market the event for October 3rd at a local mall parking lot. 
Paul is going to make sure both organizations are available and contact the mall for permission.
We might also contact the Community Police and ask them if they would like to be involved to answer questions about identity theft.
 
The Spring Gala Event is still in the planning stags.

Up Coming Meetings
 
We are always open for speakers to come to our meetings to inform and educate.
As we arrange for the upcoming speakers we have decided to reconnect with our members.
We are going to run a weekly education round table at the beginning of each meeting asking each member to come with a brief snippet of industry news.  This could be advice on car maintenance, a new health regiment, insurance news, stock tips and the next time Lois' horse is racing. 
We are also going to rerun our member's classification talks.  We have had new members join since the classification talks were last done and this will make our members feel more a part of the great club we are.  Wayne has agreed to be the first member in the spot light and i am expecting the rest of the members to let me know when they will take their turn.
 
 
July 16th, 2015 - Milena will be chairing the meeting.
July 23rd, 2015 - Wayne Ingell will be enlightening us with his Classification talk.

HAMILTON OF THE WORLDS BOOK.

Hamilton a family name that has stretched around the world. Explorers, Leaders, Dreamers!  The Hamilton Name appears in many places around the world.  Hamilton always seems to be a nice place to live no matter what continent it appears on.  This lovely picture book touches on the origins of many of the places called Hamilton across five continents.  A visual display and great keepsake or gift to new comers to your own Hamilton. 

We have acquired a quantity of these books at A NEW SPECIAL DISCOUNTED PRICE with ALL the proceeds from sales going to local charities.

Contact us for any sales or information. 

Inspired by a Rotarian in Hamilton, New Zealand in preparing for the city's 150th anniversary. While researching the history of his local Hamilton he became aware of the rich history of the Hamilton family around the world.

 

WEEKLY LUNCH MEETINGS

 
GREAT IDEAS COME FROM CONVERSATION!  Some of my best ideas came to light over lunch.  The main idea of Rotary is to get local leaders together to talk about and realize a problem and plan to solve the problem.  We need you a community leader sitting at our table.  Come out enjoy a great meal, talk about our community and the world.  Believe there is Good in the World and Be The Good in The World.
