Archive for August, 2010
The new Rotary year has begun just as we expected with lots of exciting things happening! We have continued with our excellent weekly programming, club events are being planned and our exchange student has arrived!
On the committe front, it appears all committees are now formed and have met to set their annual goals and plan how to best reach those milestones. With the leaders we have in place, I have no doubt this will be a banner year for Metro Rotary!
I would encourage everyone to remain as involved as your schedule allows. Come to a monthly social, host our exchange student for an evening (or more), or simply attend our weekly meetings for networking opportunities.
We have a wonderful group of members, and I look forward to an exciting year!
Make plans to attend the Metro Social event planned for Thursday, September 2. The gathering will be from 5-7 pm on the upper deck at Harpo’s (29 South 10th Street). This is a good chance to reconnect with veteran Rotarians and an opportunity to get to know new members.
Note: Make-up attendance credit will be given to everyone who attends this event.
