President's Message - August 2015
Greetings Rotarians! What a great first month we have had together!
My sincere thanks to Ted Campbell for arranging the wonderful July speakers we enjoyed, many thanks Ted! I would also like to express a special thank you to our fellow club member, United States Senator Steve Daines for spending time informing us all about his experiences and duties in Washington DC, Wow!
You should look forward to August too folks, as Doug Alexander has some real dandies lined up for us. Just to name a couple here. We will have Governor Bullock of Montana speak to us. Also this month we will learn more about Big Sky straight from Taylor Middleton, the General Manager of Big Sky Resort.
These great speakers we all benefit from are thanks to the fun networking efforts of Rotarians like you. I encourage you all to build on the momentum here. Simply get in touch with President Elect Roger Barnes to help inviting exciting, knowledgeable and FUN speakers. Roger is set up into October so this is not at all an urgent request. It is in fact a fun and easy opportunity for you to consider and plan for ahead of time. Just think of how well received your request will be with prospective speakers as you let them know the ranks of the speakers that are addressing our States best large club this year. This is a ripe time to consider exciting speakers that you might not otherwise feel comfortable calling on, so please think about it and contact Roger to see just how easy it is. Keep it going!
Our Club Assembly will be held during our August 7th meeting. At Club Assembly you will hear directly from various committee chairs about the exciting things “on their radar” for this upcoming year! For you newer members, or those that are ready to get after engaging in service, this assembly will be of great help to find out what’s up. I also strongly encourage you all to keep up with what Rotaract is doing and to join them at one of their events. Invite them to join us as well. This group is a younger version of us and they very much enjoy your support and you will very much enjoy their energy and perspective. I really cannot adequately describe how fun and professional Rotaract is so please experience it for yourself soon.
As past President Bruce Raymond said years ago “Many hands make light work”, I couldn’t agree more. Your help with arranging cool speakers or joining a committee to serve does just that, it makes all of our duties easier and very enjoyable, so thank you for what you all do! Here is to a great August Rotarians!
Together We Do Great Things!
