Jeff sent out an email with the RI information on making your
suggested $100 annual contribution to the Rotary International
Foundation Annual Fund online. Here is the link. Use the link to register or if you have already registered, log in. Continue by clicking “Contribute to the Rotary Foundation” on the left side of the screen. Click on the Annual Fund and then choose “Annual Fund Share”. Finish by continuing and tell them how and when you want to pay.
Larry reminded us that all Eastern Illinois Foodbank volunteer
opportunities (as well as others) will be on the CU Sunrise website so that you can sign up.
Updates on Lou Simpson and Tom Ulen’s progress were given.
Club Assembly Reports
Our goal this year is to increase membership by at least 5. At
present we have 29 regular members , one associate member and 12
senior active members. The committee would like to make us all aware of the Associate Membership program which allows 6 months with no dues, reduced attendance requirements leading up to full membership within 2 years. There is no age limit but the target age is under 40 for this program. The committee would like to sponsor a fun event where we can invite prospective members, possibly a tailgate or our 25th Anniversary party.
We will be looking for a November speaker to talk about the
foundation, club obligations and returns from our contributuions, and possibly the new grant process which will take place in 2013.
We will have the Fruit Sale this year but are looking at some new
events to raise money for our local foundation.
This year we will focus on 2 projects: Times Center and the Eastern
Illinois Foodbank. The goal of 500 hours of volunteer work is one we will try for again this year so we will participate in other projects as they come along. Members are already signed up for the WILL Book Mentor visits in addition to EI Foodbank food repacks. When you do participate in any club volunteer opportunities please remember to let Ed know what hours you worked so that they can be added into the total.
