April 11, 2019    Be An Inspiration!


April 4 program:

Planning for her year as our fearless leader, Evelyn Hayes led a discussion on potential projects or activities that members would like us to consider for 2019-2020. Suggestions included: doing a service project on Community Day, working with kids aging out of foster care, attracting more women into the club, get-together at a park event, antique auto show, something to replace Downes homework club, a sustainable project that we can initiate and other organizations participate in, expending work with JA, work with schools on their public events, involve PTA’s on dictionary project, career fair, bring more people to Main Street during time of construction, bike project????

Also suggested was more press coverage and recognition for our work in the community.

If you have any other ideas, please send to Evelyn before next week so she can compile the list.

District Conference A “Must Attend”

If you have never attended a Rotary 7630 District Conference, this year’s event is a chance for you to meet other Rotarians in our district, hear about the fabulous projects happening, and participate in a service project – all at a location convenient for us in the northern part of our district. The Chase Center in Wilmington is about as good as it can get. See the weekly Rotary Reminders for full details. It begins with dinner Friday evening, all day programs and service activity on Saturday, dinner and entertainment Saturday night, and a memorial service Sunday morning. You can register for the full package or pick and choose when you want to attend.

To register for the conference go to:


 Special Offer!

 The first five members who register for the District Conference, and show their confirmation to Robin will receive $100 toward your registration. This is a bargain!!! ONLY FOUR MORE AVAILABLE!

Please think about nominations for our three annual awards to be presented at the dinner on June 27.

Public Service Award: a non-Rotarian who is in Public Service (police, fire, EMT,) who went above and beyond in their job.
