Once again this year, our club is offering Hampton Rotary Members Only the opportunity to sponsor our club website and newsletter.  All proceeds will benefit the operations account to assist in running the club from year to year.

If you are interested in becoming a sponsor, you can see club Secretary, Deb Marsolais.

Many thanks to all those who have supported the club by sponsoring the club's website in the past.

Our board wants to ensure that our operating account remains healthy and can absorb the unavoidable rise in costs in running our club. We have been very fortunate of late in that we have come off of a couple of very conservative years, but it can change from year to year, with some years spending more for various reasons. We had no district changeover this year, the World Understanding & Peace Dinner was indeed a frugal feast, they charged only $10.00 per member to the Foundation Seminar, because they had to encourage attendance, to educate the members on Future Vision. This was an unusual year and it saved our club money!

Here is just an abbreviated list of what our $250.00 dues per person and happy/sad dollars & 50/50 proceeds are expensed to each year;

  • Rotary International & District Dues
  • Club banners, stationary, envelopes, make-up card
  • Board of Director pins/ Foundation materials
  • Audio/visual equipment
  • Rotary Signs/Shirts
  • Postage, Printing Costs, PO Box
  • Website
  • Background Check(s) Youth Protection Officer et al
  • Funding breakfast costs for program speakers, Interact students, district guests, Friends Forever, etc.
  • Additional insurance
  • Fund members to district educational events: Membership Seminar, Foundation Seminar, District Assembly, Rotary Leadership Institute
  • Fund members to mandatory events: President-elect Training Seminar (PETS), Mid-Year Leadership Training, Foundation Grants Training, Youth Protection Training
  • Funding the president/president-elect who represent the club each year to attend other district events: World Understanding & Peace Dinner, District Conference, District Changeover, etc.
  • Reducing the costs to members of our social events – Holiday Party, Changeover Dinner, Anniversary Celebration
  • District Conference Auction Item
