DG BOB KEMP'S MONTHLY MESSAGE
 
SEPTERMBER: MEMBERSHIP IS STILL OUR FOCUS...
 
...and is a challenge throughout the year. 
 
Membership involves two strong components: RETENTION - keeping members involved in the club; reaching out to bring members back to the club and RECRUITMENT - finding potential new members and seeing how they can fit in with the fellowship and service your club offers.
 
 
 
 
 
 
2020 VIRTUAL DISTRICT CONFERENCE
 
The District's first Virtual Conference was a HUGE success! Over $5,000 was raised in registrations to support the End Polio Now campaign - with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation 2:1 match, this will help vaccinate more than 25,000 children against polio!

CLUB CONNECTIONS
 
Clear Creek High School Interact Club YouTube video dedicated to the Class of 2020. The first half is before COVID – the second half after. “If you need a little pick me up in your day, take 5 minutes and watch”. https://youtu.be/BV_hDWHxxBw 
 

Is your club holding projects or social events? If so, let the District know so we can shine the spotlight on you and your members! 
 
Post your story on your club's website or Facebook page, and then send the link to office@rotary5450.org. Doing so will give your club more exposure - readers will see the story on your club's site, which will let them know more about your club and members.
THE ROTARY FOUNDATION
 
 
 
 
 
 
The Rotary Foundation Vision: “Together, we see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change — across the globe, in our communities, and ourselves.” Adopted by the Board and Trustees in June 2017, this vision statement reflects the impact Rotary aspires to have on the world and our members.

GETTING INTO THE SWING OF THINGS: We have TWO months behind us now in the new Rotary year. Have you adjusted to your new club meeting types? Have you been able to work in your committees to determine how you can help fundraise for your club, start new projects, gain new club members, and talk about the great work your Rotary club is doing in your community. Why do Rotarian donors give? Knowing what motivates Rotarians to give to The Rotary Foundation is vital to the growth and longevity of your club's fundraising efforts. Read More...
