Last week I presented a Report Card on the Club and how we were doing. The Governor told me that he never saw a club give itself a report card, and he liked the idea. If anyone missed it, let me know and I will send it to them directly. Overall, I think we are doing very well.
Last week was a great week for the Club. We had a full-house meeting at the intimate Hobler House where Jeff Gould was announced as the President-Elect. Then as the leader of a group of clubs, we closed out the largest project that the Club has ever taken on - the Homefront Playground. Lastly, we inducted two new members into the Club, Minkyo Chenette and Shreesh Tiwari, and their membership takes up to 36, higher than it has been in some time.
Jarvis likens himself to international legends!
At last week’s meeting, Art Martin used a happy dollar (or five or ten) to tell our members of good work being done by some of our members, below the radar, so to speak. So I would like to echo Art’s shout-out, but in a message that goes to all of our members. As I endlessly preach, knowing what we do is pretty fundamental to explain to people why they should support Rotary and our club in particular, and why they should join our club. Our people do good work.
Water for South Sudan (WFSS) is one of the best organizations that we support, and it has a special connection to our club because Josh’s father was a key founder and organizer. See this week's Reveille for a copy of the December 1, 2015 letter from WFSS’s president Glenn M. Balch, Jr. to Bill Hyncik, acknowledging our donation this year.
Rotary International President K. R. Ravindran is a man who has a way with words. His eloquence is matched by the power and insight of his ideas and observations. His Presidential Messages in each issue of the Rotarian magazine should be on your “must read” list every month. They are always worth your time. You can read them at: https://www.rotary.org/myrotary/en/news-media/office-president/presidential-message.
