This Week's Meeting 4/15
This week we are back on the covered patio area at Cherry Valley Country Club at 7:30AM on Thursday.   Members can also attend via Zoom - an email will go out to members with the link prior to the meeting.   This week's speaker will be David Breidinger who will discuss Rotary International Annual Giving initiatives.
Sell Those 50/50 Tickets!
Our goal is to have all 50/50 tickets sold by May 1st which means there are only a few weeks left.  You can bring sold 50/50 ticket stubs and money to our weekly meetings and give them to Zoltan Nagy who will get them to Paul Blodgett.  Any questions, ask Paul.  Further ranting and raving on this topic can be found in this week's President's Message.
Like, Share, Comment
A request from our Public Relations Director Heather Achenbach - please like, share and comment on the posts on our club Facebook page!!  It's a numbers game. The more people that like, share and comment on posts, the more the posts will be visible to community members and the more likely that we can attract new members.   
Habitat For Humanity
Looking for TEN volunteers on Tuesday, May 11 to work onsite with Habitat for Humanity at the Willow Road location, 9am - 2pm. Please add your name to the signup sheet which can be found HERE.  If more than ten volunteers, add name in case we need a replacement. This will be a great day of service.  Any questions, please contact Sharon Prosinksi.
Rotary District 7475 Conference
There is still time to register for the Rotary District 7475 Conference which, due to COVID-19, will be held virtually on the evening of May 11-14.  For more information about the schedule of events and registrations, please visit the conference website HERE.
Advertise On Our Website!
Joining Kevin Lynch, Cory Wingerter just started advertising his business on our website!  For information on rates and procedure, go the home page of our website and download the website sponsorship guide found on the right hand side of the page.  There will be a limited number of rotating ads and club members will get first crack at the opportunity before it is opened to the general public.  Proceeds from ad sales will be used to offset the club's website and communications expenses.  Any questions, ask the webmaster Matt Romanoski.
Art Auction
Our friends at the Robbinsville Hamilton Rotary Club are having an online Art Auction on Friday 4/30.  For more info, please click HERE.
President's Message: Coffee Is For Closers!!!
One of my favorite movie scenes is the real estate office scence from Glengarry Glen Ross where the character played by Alec Baldwin issues a savage beratement of the sales staff for not closing enough deals and tells Jack Lemmon’s character to put down that cup of coffee because “coffee is for closers!”  (if you’ve never seen the movie, you really should).  I wanted to implement the same idea at our weekly meetings regarding sales of 50/50 tickets but, apparently, I’m told this flies in the face of #3 of the Rotary Four Way Test  - “Will it build goodwill and better friendships?”.  So, fear not, the coffee will continue to flow freely.
