Have you been to our club website lately?  Are you a new member who has not been properly introduced to our club website?  We have a great website with many very useful features.  Please take the time to familiarize yourself with it - you won't be disappointed!


That's not a type - ClubRunner is the engine that drives our website.  Not only does it function as the platform for us to showcase our club to the world, but it serves as our communication portal with one another.  Look up other club members' contact and biographical information.  See who our upcoming speakers are, as well as fine, trivia and greater assignments.

Is Your Information Complete and Current?

Log in to ClubRunner and check YOUR information.  Is your address up to date?  Have you filled in the additional information?  Tell us about you - we are dying to know more!  
To log in to ClubRunner:
  1. Go to
  2. Click "Member Login" in the upper right corner
  3. Login with your username and password - if you don't know this, contact Andy Willis.  He's eager to help you get started!
  4. Once logged in, click "Member Area" to enter the realm of ClubRunner
Once inside, you'll find yourself at the Dashboard - click "Edit My Profile".  Look over your info; if anything is missing or outdated, click the "Edit" button to go into the editor.  Make your changes and click "Save".
Once inside, click around and explore the features.  Some things aren't in our package, and some aren't that interesting - but a lot of it is, and our club would benefit if we all take advantage of the features of ClubRunner!

Make a Difference

We still need Rotarian to lead RYLA in 2018.  If you are interested in helping out, please contact Chris Curran for more information.  Chris will be organizing the 2017 event the weekend of May 5-7.

A Successful Auction Begins with You!

Our annual auction will only be as successful as we make it.  We need to canvass the area for donations to sell in the live and silent auction.

Items Still Needed

If you have an item or an idea for an item for the Derby Glitz Gala & Auction, please contact Andy Willis.  Donation forms need to be turned in right away to be entered into the program and to promote the event on our websites.  Donation forms can be downloaded here (click now), and we will have forms available at our weekly lunch meetings.  Deliver the completed form to Andy via e-mail, fax or in person.  
Please take some time to visit the Derby Glitz Gala & Auction website at, where you'll find information on items already collected (or pledged), sponsors and other information as it becomes available.  Please take time to review the site, and report any problems you find.

Do You have Your Ticket(s)?

Some of you have not committed to buy tickets or tables.  We need participation from the entire club to make the event a success, and that means filling the tables at the Ramada.  You may purchase individual tickets for $100 each, or fill a table of 8 for $800.  Invite your friends, siblings, parents, (adult) children - anyone who wants to have a great time and contribute to many of the great causes of our club.
"$100 is a lot for a ticket - why so much?"  We aren't trying to cover the cost of the event, we're raising money for our Jennifer Purdy Scholarships and other Rotary projects.  Each ticket sold includes approximately $40 above our cost, making sure everyone who attends has contributed to our success.
