The days are warming, the flowers are blooming and our 2017-18 Rotary year has entered the last quarter. 
Last June we met together as a Club and spoke about what would make are Club the “perfect Club.”  Your three priorities were very clear:
  1. Membership Engagement through Service and Fellowship
  2. A Desire for Pride in Our Club through Strong PR
  3. Commitment to Impactful Service
We have made these priorities a focus.  Everyone but a few members have engaged in a service committee of their choice. Members have stepped up to serve food to the homeless at Bethlehem Inn, members came out in force to help with the Duck Race on race day, members have stepped up to provide future life “Choices” to teens in the La Pine High School, three members made the trek to Ethiopia and to train over 600 health workers how to prevent neural tube defects in unborn babies, many members helped put together our Holiday Auction in December, 39 members and a handful of Interactors helped run the Daddy Daughter Dance in February, and now we are getting ready to serve 347 First Graders with the Gift of Literacy Project this May.  We’ve socialized together at member homes, baseball games, bowling alleys, and pubs.
Our Public Relations Committee has been great at taking photos, sharing Facebook posts, writing press releases, and updating our website to raise awareness that we are above all, a service organization.  We coordinated a four-Club press release for the beneficiaries of our Duck Race fundraiser.  But also touted our accomplishments at Bethlehem Inn and the Choices program.  We produced a Club Brochure to attract new members and tell our story, and refreshed our brand on a new t-shirt.
But most of all let’s take pride in the fact that we have broken bread together while sharing each other’s successes and life challenges.  We are in this life but once, we might as well share in the journey, have fun, and give back along the way.
