Committee Chairs Update Club Members on Club Events
Posted By Marc Friedland
Our vision statement: We are a diverse fellowship of service-oriented professionals actively committed to improving our community and the world.
At today’s club assembly, we heard from several club members about what’s going on inside Charlotte-South Rotary Club.
- Jim Alexander invited us all to stop by on Wednesday after work to informally help ZEBRA RESTAURANT celebrate their 10 year anniversary.
- Andy Jones reminded us to come out to the Charlotte airport to welcome home the WWII vets from the final flight of honor. Their return flight to Charlotte gets in around 8 o’clock Saturday night (September 17). This is a very moving experience. So please come and support the WWII vets. You’ll be glad you did.
- Andy also talked about the upcoming golf tournament. Please rally to sell a golf foursome, hole sponsor or other sponsorship, and to secure prize donations. We’ll also need volunteers on October 3 out at Firethorne. The money raised at the golf tournament supports many charities.
- Speaking of charities, Dave Ritchie unveiled the project submission timeline. Dave requests all projects be returned to him no later than October 10, 2011. Brad will post the forms on the website and distribute a link to club members.
- Karen Pike has a sign-up sheet for volunteers at the Charlotte-South booth at the District Social/Duck Race on September 24. While the club has purchased $2000 of ducks, there are still ducks available. $10/one duck, $25/three ducks. See the Duck Race for Polio events page for additional information.
- Please welcome Hadley Perry as the newest member to the Charlotte-South Rotary Club. In addition to Hadley, our club welcomes Josh Hall and Monica Donner, both inducted since July 1.
- We had an informal ceremony to promote, Barbara Chenette, Doyle George, Pam Greenwood, Charmaine Gudgeon, and Julie Tuggle to blue badges. If you feel you meet the blue badge criteria and have not yet been changed from the red badge, please let me or Mike Brannock know.
- Dr. Paul Greenberg provided us with the Foundation minute. Paul shares tidbits each week so that we have a better understanding of the good work that our contributions to the Rotary International Foundation are making in the world.
- David Kostmayer gave a brief financial report of the club. Please help us by remitting any past due invoices.
- Karen Pike updated the club on the long-range strategic planning session, the club’s vision statement, and the goals for the club over the next few years.
- Lastly, Les Davas spoke briefly about the Rotary Youth Exchange program. He would like to have our club’s support of an exchange student for the 2012/2013 Rotary year.
