Dear Rotarians and Guests,
 
Let me express my sincere appreciation to the Rotarians who continue to join us week after week at our meetings and HHH; it is greatly appreciated.  Our club could not have done this without each of you.   For those visiting Rotarians, potential Rotarians and just visitors we encourage you to continue to use our HOME for your make-ups and reading materials and remind you to share it with your fellow club members and others.  We welcome your feedback which is important to us, please share your comments with us or with our club members.
 
Please join us tomorrow for our last Saturday meeting in the month of August – Membership Month.   Tomorrow we dedicate the time to discuss our Signature Project – the Butterfly Storybook and look forward to your participation and continued support in the decision-making process as we prepare to launch in September – Basic Education and Literacy Month. 
 
We look forward to a September’s month of activities coordinated by Rtn. Keturah and ask that you all continue to make an effort to support and participate throughout the month.
 
Hope to see you all there.
 
A special thanks to IPP Amarylis, who continues to be a true ambassador to the club and the district.  Please see a copy of an email received from DGE Sylvia Maisonet-Diaz; DGE 2016/17
 
Dear Amarylis,

We want to thank you for taking your time to visit us and present the Water -project for the families of Boulmier.

You were so passionate, explaining  this project, that tears came to my eyes.  I can't even imagine those girls that don't have the opportunity to study because ,they have to pick up water, so far away, to bring it to their community.

As I told you, I am also committed to this project and you will have our support in my year as District Governor 2016-2017. I am copying PDG- Paul Roman, who is my Chair for TRF in my year.

Have a great weekend and a productive week.
 
Stories
My dear friends,
We often talk a great deal about membership. Quite naturally, the focus is on recruiting new members, but in the process, we lose sight of an equally important task — that of retaining existing members.
 
As Rotary celebrates Membership Month, I want to ask what Rotary means to you. I invite you to share your story not only with Rotary but with your personal and professional networks — not only why you joined, but why you are still a member of Rotary today. Is it because of the difference you’ve made in your community or because of the lifelong friendships you’ve made? Speak of the personal benefits that you have derived from your membership in Rotary, whether it’s the satisfaction from reaching out to someone who desperately needed help or the gains in your own life that came from the opportunities and connections available to you through Rotary. Sharing your Rotary story could help inspire someone to join.
 
Promoting our exciting member benefits program, Rotary Global Rewards, will not only help you get more transformative work done but will also show new and potential members the added value of being a part of the Rotary network. Find out more yourself about this new program and how it can be used to enhance the Rotary member experience. Encourage others to do the same.
 
The Member Center is now home to a number of resources to help you better serve your clubs and districts, including brochures like Be a Vibrant Club and Strengthening Your Membership: Creating Your Membership Development Plan. Exploring, understanding, and using these tools can help you engage and retain your members.
 
Every year, the Rotary International Convention serves as a great way to experience what it truly means to be a part of Rotary. A promotion kit for the 2016 convention in Seoul is now available. The kit provides digital and print resources to promote the convention to your club or district. Go to the Seoul convention site, find the kit in the Resources section, and use it to encourage your fellow Rotarians to attend. With your help, the 2016 Rotary Convention could be the biggest yet! By encouraging a new member to attend the convention, you will have given him or her the opportunity to be well and truly convinced of the reach and breadth of Rotary.
 
Membership is important year-round. We must continue to give potential members more reasons to join, and current members more reasons to stay. Let us work together to strengthen our membership base and to encourage others to join us as we work to improve our communities and to Be A Gift to the World.
 
In this video message, I share my additional thoughts on membership:
Sincerely,
K.R. Ravindran
Rotary International President

WHAT IS THE ANNUAL FUND

 
  ANNUAL FUND is the primary source of funding for all Foundation activities. Our annual contributions help Rotary Clubs take action to create positive change in communities at home and around the world.  Our gift helps strengthen peace efforts, provide clean water and sanitation, support education, grow local economies, save mothers and children and fight disease.
Through our annual Sustaining Member contributions of $100 or more, the Rotary E-Club of the Caribbean, 7020 has been a 100% EREY contributor since we were chartered in 2013.  Let us continue to support The Rotary Foundation (TRF) through our annual donations.
 
We have been and continue to “Be a gift to the World”.
