August is Membership Month! 
Having an engaged and healthy sized membership is the key to expanding the good work of Rotary.  Each club needs to have a membership plan.  While membership is the responsibility of every Rotarian, each club needs a Membership Chair to coordinate the plan.  If your club doesn’t have a chair appointed, consider volunteering for the role today!
 
Membership isn’t just about attracting new members.  Rotary Clubs need to care for and engage the members that they already have.  Membership plans must address this key component.  There are countless ideas out there for how to care for your fellow club members and build stronger clubs at the same time. 
 
The District Membership Committee is happy to meet with your executive or your club to share ideas and resources for creating strong membership.  You can email the Chair of the 5370 Membership Committee, Tyla Savard, at tyla@gprotary.com to set up a meeting or presentation, or to simply start a conversation.

Deadly Earthquake Strikes Haiti
This morning, Saturday Aug 14, a devastating 7.2 magnitude earthquake ravaged Haiti.
 
We are extremely concerned about the situation. Deaths have already been reported and the numbers are expected to quickly climb - high casualties are probable. Collapsed buildings have been reported and past events like this have required national and international assistance. We don't know the full extend of the destruction, but the situation is dire.
 
SHELTERBOX IS PREPARED
ShelterBox emergency response teams are assessing the situation and communicating directly with in country and community agencies like Habitat for Humanity Haiti and local Rotarians. We are preparing to respond. This includes finding out what the Haitian communities tell us they need.
 
But we need your support.
We need your help to ensure the most vulnerable families around the world receive the aid they need.
 
ShelterBox and Rotary are official Project Partners in international disaster relief. ShelterBox Canada is a registered charity independent of Rotary International and the Rotary Foundation. Charitable Registration # 84628 3208 RR0001
