Incoming President Jon Caplan & other board members outlined our Club’s goals and challenges for the coming year.

To help implement our Club’s programs, we would like to achieve a net gain of 5 members, and develop a more formal orientation process for new members as well as improve our outreach to past members and guests.

We want to continue our 100% Club participation in the Paul Harris Dinner drawing ticket book purchases. We are working on our Kisumu Siany Child Development Global Grant project in East Africa. (This is depending on coordination by the African host Club.) We would like at least one of our Club members to participate in the upcoming District humanitarian trip to Bogotá, Colombia. We want to offer a Rotary Moment presentation once a month on notable activities and programs, to review what we are accomplishing in Rotary.

We are working on adopting a community school for a community project, and would also like to participate in or partner with another Club on a project. We need to develop a fundraiser for this year to support our Club projects, and are looking for creative ideas from our members. Please contact Jon. We want to involve our Rotaractors and Interactors as volunteers in our projects. We will continue to support Project EGO and hope to secure a grant from the Norris Foundation.

We are working on updating our Facebook page and website to provide more information about upcoming programs. We are creating Club website bios for each member, so Jon needs your input on “who you are”. We also want to create a website page for each of our projects, so project leaders should write up a short description and submit any relevant photos. We are looking for suggestions for speakers for our programs.
