What Did You Miss?
Are you a person with leadership skills?  Do you share your ideas in your Rotary Club?  Are you a person of action?  Then you should come to your District's One Rotary Summit.  You will learn how membership, public image, humanitarian service and supporting your Rotary Foundation work together in Making a Difference in your local community. 
You will meet fellow D5950 Rotarians who have similar interests in being a "Person of Action" -- which is an exciting phrase to use in sharing about your Rotary efforts.  You will take home ideas that have worked or will be worthy of trying in this and in future years.  Don't miss this event.  There will be breakfast, lunch and beverages to fuel you to be fired up!

Speaker Rotation - Who's Up?

Upcoming Speaker Rotation

We have a new process!
The person in bold each month is that month's group chair to help facilitate communication.  Once your group lines up speakers, please let Justin Burleson know so he can update the calendar and Gwen will update the bulletin.  Thanks everyone for your work lining up speakers and hopefully this new process will further stimulate Rotary member interaction.
Please contact Justin Burleson with your speaker's topic and biographical info.
