A TOWERING TASK
THE STORY OF THE PEACE CORPS
A  DOCUMENTARY
 
The SCRC Board is presenting to its members a unique opportunity for learning and collegiality.  The Documentary, “A Towering Task”, will be available for members to view on their own followed by a ZOOM group meeting with breakout sessions for discussion.
 
The documentary presents the Peace Corps from the 1960s to present. It is a historical document reviewing history as it was from the Peace Corps perspective.  Watch it apolitically over these years. The Peace Corps shares many of the same mission, vision and values of Rotary.
 
Our SCRC has three Returned Peace Corps members – Joni and Pat Ellis (2015-2017, Motsekuoa, Lesotho (village and Country); Kimberly Nearpass-Pollack (1992-1995 Ha Sekake, Lesotho, is in Southern Africa);  and Emily Messegee  (2009-2011, Aufouss, Errichidia, Morocco (village, providence, country).
Kim and Emily will facilitate the ZOOM meeting and breakout sessions.
 
Charlie Hunt from the Denver LoDO Rotary Club and a Returned Peace Corp Volunteer gave a presentation to our Club a while ago.  Charlie contacted Emily about the Documentary.  Emily presented to the Board the idea of making it available to all our members followed with a discussion.  It was decided that it would be good to have our Social Committee organize an event for the Documentary. The event will be in two parts:
 
1) RCSC Members will be able to view the documentary on their own from May 10 through May 12.  Lori will send out a link in May to view the documentary.  The documentary is about two hours in length.  It can be viewed in one session or divided into various segments based on the viewer’s wishes.  There are 3 Parts to the documentary but it can be viewed however best for the Rotarian. It can also be viewed as many times as the viewer would like during this three day period.
 
2) On Thursday, May 13 at 5 pm all SCRC members can connect on the Rotary Zoom and enjoy a Happy Hour together.  Get your favorite beverages and appetizers and enjoy a large group session facilitated by Emily and Kim followed by small group breakout sessions and a large group summary. The ZOOM connection is the same as for our Rotary ZOOM meetings.

To ensure that the club newsletter and other Clubrunner emails are successfully delivered to your email inbox, add the following email address and domain name to your email's contact list/safe senders/whitelist:

  1. mailservice@clubrunner.ca 
  2. @clubrunner.email

What is a whitelist and why is this needed?

Email spam filters often include the ability to "whitelist" certain sender IP addresses, email addresses or domain names to protect their email from being rejected or sent to a junk mail folder.   

From Wickipedia:  A whitelist is (1) a list of email addresses that a mail server or email client program is configured to accept as valid, incoming mail. Also called a "safe senders list," only messages from addresses on the list are allowed, and all the rest are discarded.   (2) A list of valid domain names that a mail server is configured to accept. All mail from users with that domain are allowed. 

Gmail:

According to internet:  Gmail offers an option to add specific addresses or domains as "safe" so they aren't automatically marked as spam, known as a "Whitelist." Your Whitelists must be managed and set by you. If you want to accept all email sent from a specific address, follow these instructions:

  1. Log in to your Gmail
  2. Click the gear icon in the top-right, and select Settings.
  3. Click the Filters and Blocked Addresses tab. 
  4. Click Create at New Filter. 
  5. In the pop-up window, in the From field enter the clubrunner email addresses listed above separated by OR. example mailservice@clubrunner.ca OR @clubrunner.email
  6. Click Create filter.
  7. Check "Never send it to Spam".
  8. Click Create filter
The Membership Committee needs new Rotary members (especially people who have joined Rotary in the last 2 - 3 years) to join the Committee to help us meet our challenges in attracting and retaining new members.  The Committee meets as needed to discuss approaches in how we can add, and involve, new members. The Summit Rotary Club is now below 100 members, and we need to recruit new folks to keep our club vibrant and involved in the community!
 

A Prospective Member should attend 3 zoom meetings before turning in his/her application, sponsor form, a short bio and $50 application fee to the Membership Chairman, Mike Connolly, or to any one on the Membership Committee.  The application will be presented to the Membership Committee for approval.  Once approved, the applicant's bio will be posted in our bulletin for 3 weeks.  If there are no questions about the Prospective Member, the induction will be scheduled. Two new categories of Membership have recently been approved – a Family Membership and a Corporate Membership.  Please contact an individual on the Membership Committee for details on these new types of Membership.

 

Membership Committee Members are: Chairman - Mike Connolly, Julianne Gilchrist, Tom Marmins, Sandy Mortensen, Ann Clement, Susan Juergensmeier, Stephanie Katz, David "Woody" Woodland, Meg Boyer and Mike Spry.
