Week 34. Rotary Minute for week beginning 23 February
Is there an E-Club in your future? My hunch is probably not if you’re a regular old-school Rotarian like me. But, it takes all kinds to make this world go round. So for some out there, an E-Club might just be what the good doctor Paul Harris would have prescribed, if only the internet had been around back in his day.
E-Clubs may not be every Rotarian’s cup of tea, but they have their place in the Family of Rotary and they have been very beneficial to many Rotarians around the world. When Rotarians have to leave their clubs because they have moved to some far away place, an E-Club might be just the thing to keep them in Rotary. Do you have members who for whatever reason are unable to attend their regular club meetings? Well, for them an E-Club could be the answer. Do you know a person who would make a great Rotarian, but has no tolerance for structured weekly meetings? Well, how about pointing them to an E-Club!
March 5-7: Florida Multi-District President-Elect Training Seminar (PETS) in Orlando, FL. Presidents-Elect – have you entered your goals in Rotary Club Central?
May 8-10: District Conference and Assembly at the Flagler College campus. Mark your calendar for a weekend of interesting, informative and inspirational sessions, and a lot of fun Rotary fellowship.
June 18-21: Rotary Youth Leadership Awards (RYLA) will take place again this year on the University of North Florida’s campus. Make sure your club sponsors at least one, and preferably two, aspiring high school leaders who will be entering their junior or senior years at the start of the 2015-2016 school year.
- June 26-28: Zone 34 Regional Seminar at the Hyatt Hotel in Jacksonville, Florida. All District and Club leaders, as well as any Rotarian interested in learning more about Rotary, are encouraged to attend. Look for more details soon on our District website.
For more on these and all other events in District 6970, keep an eye on this website.
Yours in service to Rotary,
