Sarah Jones, (RC of Albuquerque Del Norte) District Chair of the Four-Way Test Essay Contest, is pleased to announce that, "It’s that time of year again to get the contest information out into your community middle-schools.

"After reviewing past essay contest policies, implementing more student-friendly guidelines will not only enrich the student’s experience, but also improve the quality of the essays.  The time limit to complete the essay excludes some students that grasp the concept, but may not communicate their ideas effectively under this restriction.  Therefore, there is no time limit.  I am hopeful teachers and students will deep-dive into the Four-Way Test and, therefore, encourage research.

"Included in this year’s essay information packets are district goals to encourage a more vibrant, rooted Four-Way Test Essay Contest experience for our middle-school communities.  Please pass this information on to your Club's Four-Way Test committee chair and feel free to contact me if you are interested in helping during the long-term goal planning process."
 
[The winning essays from all participating District Clubs must be received by the District Four-Way Test Committee Chair by March 16, 2018. Email essays to Sarah Jones at newmexime@aol.com]

What Time is It?  It’s Time for District Assembly!  (and PANCAKES at the Rock at NoonDay)

When: Saturday, March 24, 10:00 to 3:15     Foundation Dinner/Social 5:00 to 7:30

What: The premiere learning and networking event for district Rotarians

Why: Learn from Others, Share Your Knowledge and Develop Future Leaders

Need another reason – PANCAKES!

Once again, The Rotary Club of Albuquerque Sandia will host their Pancake Breakfast from 8:00 to 10:00 a.m. at a nearby location before the Assembly convenes.  This year’s venue is The Rock at Noonday located at 2400 2nd St NW, one block south of Menaul.  The Rock is just five minutes from the Crowne Plaza, so get your pancakes while they’re hot and then amble on over to the District Assembly with a full tummy.

This is an excellent opportunity for Rotarians to see The Rock and support two deserving organizations.  There will be tours available to explore the facility and hear about the services The Rock offers a sometimes-underserved community.

Ticket prices are $9.00 each and will be available at the door or through Sandia Rotary folks who hope to visit all Albuquerque metro area clubs in person. Any questions, please reach out to Gail at 505-350-2704 or Mrsmandel@hotmail.com
