Quincy Rotary Board Meeting - June 13, 2012

  • We are requesting your participation in our Sustaining Member Pledges during the District Governors visit. This request will be included with you membership dues invoice.  Please indicate that you would like to be a RI Sustaining Member ($100/yr.) or an Every Rotarian Every Year (EREY) for any amount ($10-$100). We would love to have everyone contribute something this year. We will be receiving a $2000 matching grant from the District next year for our trail signs – your money is at work.
  • We have work days coming up with the Community Supper and helping with tables and benches at the Bocce Ball court in July ($500 for kits with wood donated by SPI). Then in August we plan to work on the Baseball dugouts. 
  • Social events include a Bocce Ball evening BBQ on July 30, Bucks Lake Dinner September 10 and a possible Greenhorn BBQ on October 1.
  • The board recommended re-instituting recognizing make ups at meetings to encourage attendance.  Making up on line is easy, fun, informative, and a good way to stay connected.  It usually only takes 15-20 min. 
  • We will enforce road runner etiquette - $2 when paying for meal, a hand shake with the speaker and excused by the president prior to the program.
  • And lastly – Membership.  My goal is 50 members (+6) by the end of the year.  We have our work cut out for us. Invite someone you think would benefit from Rotary, would enjoy service – making Quincy better for everyone and someone with high ethical standards.  We need to get the word out on what we do and the fun we have.

Peace through Service, -Pete
