This August Update is being sent to all D6840 Rotarians; the opportunities here are for member Rotarians to become People of Action and engage directly in community and other avenues of service without requiring extra work by the club.  Rotary, after all, is only the sum of the action, creativity, and dedication of the membership. Service is FUN!
20 Acts of Service: Rotary Reclaims 2020
Let’s be honest…2020 needs a do-over.  Rotarians are People Of Action.  This proposed effort is for individual Rotarians to Reclaim 2020 and engage in Service Above Self
Positive energy is contagious.  This is a great OPPORTUNITY to showcase engaged Rotarians = People of Action = enhanced public image.
Rotarians are People of Peace
International Peace Day is September 21  
In these times when it's hard to know where and how to engage in service, the Rotary Club of Bay St. Louis has partnered with D6840 to design and make available to all Rotarians a Rotary People of Peace t-shirt.

2020-2021 Blood Drive
People of Action * People of Service
Throughout the geographic area of District 6840 hospitals face a critical need for blood donations.
We have partnered with The Blood Center to tally the donations of all Rotarians of D6840.
If your club would like to organize an actual blood drive, please do.  But this is something that we can do as individual members of Rotary.
Please use the Rotary D6840 Group Number when you donate:
August Vibrant Club Seminar -- Re-IMAGINED
Due to the current RI guidelines on no district-led in person meetings through the end of the current calendar year, the 2020 August Vibrant Club Training Seminar has been re-imagined.  Club presidents and leadership teams who have already participated in an Offical DG Visit (what we are calling Rotary Open(s Opportunities) Houses) are aware that instead of the district organizing a training event that occupies a full Saturday, we are asking all Rotarians who hold a leadership position to take advantage of the training created by Rotary International via the Learning Center.
