President's Message SEPTEMBER 2013
September 1, 2013
will be another record-breaking hot day in Denver. Summer has its grip on
even though a few mornings have had a hint of fall. For me Fall is all
about beginnings. I teach one class at a local college and when I go “back
to school” it always feels like renewal. Your Rotary eClubOne
welcomes some new beginnings of our own. By now, we hope you are becoming
familiar with your new board of Directors, your new website and our new
members. Another start this Fall will be with our approved budget.
Look forward to hearing from Jeremy Penner who is our
Service Director. Jeremy’s committee is in charge of distributing our
international, disaster and community service grants.
I am on the subject of Jeremy, let me tell you a little bit about our Service
Director. Jeremy does his work and calls his home in Kenya. He
joins our board meetings very late at night or very early in the morning.
Because of his amazing work and his dedication to Rotary, Jeremy was awarded
the clubs highest honor, the Donald Carver award this last year. That
award goes to recognize the most outstanding member of our Rotary eClubOne.
Would you like to know work more closely with Jeremy? Consider reaching
out to him at email@example.com.
Jeremy could use some volunteers to work on the Disaster and Community Service
Grant committees. This is fun work as you get to review the grant
applications to the club for our various granting projects. And, if
you are having a bad day, the chance to see Rotary in action, your bad day will
you know your Board of Director’s have spent time asking you to engage.
We have sent emails to those of you we haven’t heard from in a while. We
have encouraged you to participate in the forums either as a participant or a
forum facilitator. The facilitators have done an excellent job. If
you are interested in hosting a forum, please reach out to Henry Harrison at firstname.lastname@example.org.
we have another chance for you to fully participate in your club: one Board
position remains unfilled: we are
seeking a Foundation Chair. This
position includes helping guide members to Rotary International Foundation
Giving as well as promoting the advantages of RI Foundation giving. Our
giving allows for Rotary to fund projects all across our globe. Please let me know at email@example.com if you
would like to discuss tasks and time commitments related to this position.
you for all you do. I know that when I go to bed tonight that a fellow
eClubOne member will be waking up to start their Rotary day.
Peace and Rotary service.
