Here is another "Practical Matters" Membership-growth idea from Wenatchee North Rotary Club...
 
Generate a public image event in your local community!
Find an opportunity to raise awareness about Rotary and how Rotary supports your local community.
 
An idea that could be implemented in your community:
Saturday, September 17, 2016  - The 3 Wenatchee Rotary clubs and the East Wenatchee Rotary club manned the concession  stands at the high school football game between Wenatchee High School and the Mt. Boucherie High School from Kelowna, British Columbia. Over 30 Rotarians and their spouses volunteered to man both concession stands so that the high school students who normally run the concession stands could watch their fellow students play the entire football game. 
 
Practical Steps:
 
• Secured social media coverage via radio PSA’s (public service announcements) leading
up to the game
• Promoted the event on Facebook and local club websites
• Obtained press coverage from the local newspaper (see attached article)
• Created and displayed Rotary banners at the concession stands and the announcer’s box
• Set up a Rotary information table with handouts about Rotary and specific information
about our local Rotary clubs
• Created announcements for the announcer to share information about Rotary and
specific information about each of the 4 Rotary clubs in our Wenatchee Valley
• Rotary matched donations raised at the game to help the Wenatchee High School
