CLUB NEWS and ANNOUNCEMENTS
Sargent At Arms Andrea Hales arranges for special entertainment Tuesday and the auctioned off seats at a reserved table. After collecting over a hundred bucks she introduced special guest artist "CHER!" (aka Rotarian Stephanie Ker) who sang "Does he love me, I want to know". Everyone agreed it was the highlight of the year.
Every Rotarian, Every Year has been the theme for Foundation giving for several years. Rotary suggests budgeting $2/week, which can be paid with your semi-annual dues. At this rate a Rotarian can achieve Paul Harris Fellow level in ten years.
Check your giving status on the rotary.org web site. To set up your own log-in there you need the club number (2830), district number (6310) and your RI number, which can be found on your Rotary magazine, your dues invoice, and in the club directory.
Vocational Days are coming up. Griff, Ralph and Dee Dee ask that, if you plan to host students, please fill out a form as soon as possible and turn it in to one of them. Bay Med will host students on March 2, and Delta College will do March 16. Since Delta takes such a large group, the committee prefers that Rotarians who host students take the March 2 date.
