Rotary Week of  09-05-22
Dearest fellow rotarians,
Fantastic lunch meeting again… I feel like I’m repeating myself every week but we had 20 people in attendance with two absolutely amazing classification speeches by Corkey Swartz and Andrew Neville… I think the great stash off was a draw 🤔 
Our district governor will be visiting us this week on September 7 at 12:15 PM sharp… Please do everything in your powers to attend so we can show him how awesome the Newtown Rotary club really is.
Labor Day became a federal holiday in 1894. Eleven years later Rotary was founded.   
What did it stand for then?  Recognition of the American worker.  
What does it stand for now?  Pretty much the same, except for one little thing. Millions of American workers have changed their mindsets in these post pandemic years.    The “quiet quitters,”  “The Great Resignation,” “Me too” and three and four.  Where work is concerned, it's transactional, period.   
How does this position future Rotarians?  Rotarians aren't just transactional.  It’s personal.  We’re transformative.  We make a difference.  That’s the stuff that drives us.    We don’t reject the extra effort.  As a matter of fact, bring it on.  
Finding future Rotarians during a quiet quitter pandemic may not be easy.  We know you're out there... you may just be a little pickier about where you commit.  
Oh sure, we all burn out.   But if you’re an inactive member, did you really resign?   I’m willing to bet your heart is still Rotarian.  Welcome home.  
My fellow Rotarians, I wish you a Happy Labor Day.  Whether you’re active, inactive, honorary, or resigned, this is a day to reflect and celebrate the difference you make in the world.   Pull out that Rotary pin and wear it proud on Labor Day, and every day. 
(Oh, and if you can’t find your pin, please see me…)
Read on for updates about our club.  Chime in...and keep the gears in motion!
