DanaOne decision can change everything. Haven’t we all heard those words before? Nothing can be truer. After going through RILI training last January, a simple class exercise took hold, and I realized how I could make a bigger difference with my Rotary service. We all have our “pet” projects. Mine is to spread the word about the importance of becoming an organ donor. By sharing my story with you, I pray that you will join me, as individuals and Rotarians, to spread the word.

Why are you a Rotarian?
Share your passion for Rotary with your family, friends, and community during Membership and Extension Month in August. This year you’re invited to take part in two activities designed to help you remember why you joined Rotary, what keeps you coming back, and why others should join.

First, take the Rotary Membership Challenge. Commit to sponsor a new member, tell a friend or colleague about your club’s projects, or volunteer as a mentor to prospective or new members. After you complete the form we’ll email you links to resources to help you meet the challenge!

Second, participate in the first-ever Rotary Moment Tweet Day on 14 August. Tweet about your favorite Rotary memory or event, talk about your club’s activities, or share your community service project. Use hashtag #RotaryMoment.

Not on Twitter? Listen to Rotary’s popular webinar Using Social Media to Promote Your Club or District to learn how to create a Twitter account, post your first tweet, use hashtags, and lots more.

Col. Keith McBride - 1990 - 2030 - 40 Years Through A USAF Lens 

 

Col. Keith McBride, of the USAF, former graduate of Greenville High, and son of Rotarian Don McBride, spoke to Greenville Rotary on July 13. Colonel McBride presented information regarding the Air Force’s core values: “Integrity First, Service Before Self, and Excellence in All We Do.” He covered several interesting topics, including a timeline of technological changes in the USAF, as well as a comparison of the precision weapons of Desert Storm, today’s military and exciting changes for the future. Many members of the McBride family were also in attendance.

President Kim will be brfinging most of the school supplies.  So we will need a few people to stay after Rotary and stuff backpacks.  We want everyone to take a backpack to carry onboard.

 The t-shirts are also in so those will be passed out as well.

 And don't forget the Saturday night sail away party at the Blue Armadillo.  Wear your shirts if you have them.  Not going on the cruise?  Come on down and wish us bon voyage!

As you may know, Sunday, 24 October 2010 is World Polio Day. In honor of World Polio Day, The Rotary Foundation is happy to announce 2 for 1 recognition points for every online contribution of $100.00 or more made to PolioPlus during 18-24 October 2010.
 

It was previously reported that points would be earned only after a Rotarian has achieved Paul Harris Fellow level.  This is normally true, but this 2 for 1 is a special, limited time offer (Oct 18 - 24, 2101) that will give recognition points to anyone who contributes $100 or more to Polio Plus.  The rules will revert back to points earned after Paul Harris Fellow level only after 10/24.
 
Sorry if the earlier emails confused anyone.
 
Rotarians may go to www.rotary.org/contribute to make their online contribution.  Rotarians will need to be registered with Rotary's Member Access.  Through Member Access, Rotarians are able to access online services and features. 
 
Rotarians may register for Member Access at www.rotary.org/memberaccess.

 
You will still feel good about yourself.
   
YIR,
Don Carter

John Coble presented a check to Tanner Cash for his Eagle Scout Project to sigh up organ donors.  He held a free concert and had 26 people sign up to be donars.  He is still receiving calls for the program.

The concert was a free blues concert for Awareness for Organ Donation October 11 at the Municipal auditorium.  His awareneness of this cause was due to his grandad's kidney transplant.  Roosevelt Twitty was the headliner and is also on the Donation List.  To "recycle" yourself, he asks that we go to the website donatelifetexas.org for more information.  He would like for everyone to get people to sign up for organ donation.
