Hopefully this message finds you all well and enjoying a long lasting summer this month.
Your club has been involved in much this past month and we have a bunch to do ahead, you folks are a power house!
I am very happy to announce that your Board of Directors approved our 2015/2016 budget and there are some very exciting goals established amongst our club’s committees to serve and serve big!
The growing results of Fix-Up Festival lead by Ted Campbell’s Community Service Committee are full steam ahead right now. The big day is October 3, 2015.
As a construction guy, I know that Jon Ayres is hard at it, arranging the many aspects in order for these projects to be ready to execute on site that day. Jon is a champion at spearheading this, thanks Jon! I also heard Cathi Simonson’s announcement during Governor Bullock’s visit last week for all of us to consider assisting with event support efforts. Trust me, Fix Up festival is not at all just about construction work. There are many fun tasks to help with to ensure that our service efforts run very well, you will be proud to help. The results of Rotarians and other groups in our community following your club’s lead is astounding and impactful. For those members that have yet to experience our club’s Fix Up Festival contribution to our community I really encourage you to ask Cathi or Ted how best to help. At a minimum take a short ride around with a friend or family member to a project or two and see what your club does and does so well.
I’d like to thank Rotaract President Sam Hensler and his Board, Youth Services Committee headed up by Frederick Richards and the Membership Committee headed up by Barbara do Amaral for working together to provide clarity of club membership criteria for Rotaractors in good standing. This important goal is nearing completion and once again Rotaract is charged up to do big things this year. Thanks folks!
As I look at our speakers in the coming months, Wow, we have much to look forward to on that front as well. Thank you Governor Bullock for speaking to us last week and thanks to Taylor Middleton (GM of Big Sky Resort) for scheduling in October to allow both to happen.
Fun stuff Rotarians, fun stuff!
