Rotary Has Heart LAST DAY to PARTICIPATE
Show your February Valentine Spirit by participating in our Rotary Has Heart food drive for the Food Bank of Delaware. Shop now for specials on non-perishables (macaroni, canned vegetables or meats, tuna, etc.) and bring to the meeting on Feb. 16. Our enthusiastic team of Tom, Laurie, Sujan, and BJ will be presenting prizes for the most unusual categories.
AD Campaign in full Swing!
With the kickoff of the 2023 Report to the Community, we are officially in campaign mode. So far about $11000 in ads has been sold. At the suggestion of Cindi, your steps should be: 1) craft a contact list, 2) schedule time for phone calls and selling 3) writ down your selling points and have in front of you, 4) set a goal of 8 ad per week, 5) carry copies of the ’22 Report with you and access sell sheets on nmrde.org, 6) sign your letter with a personal note. March 23 is our ad space deadline.
Spending the Flag Money
At the suggestion of our Philanthropy Committee, and confirmation of our members present last week, we will present $16,750 profit from the 2022 Flags For Heroes project to the following:
$250 each to Delaware Military Academy, VFW Post 475, and Delaware Patriot Guard for their participation in the November 13 ceremony; $4000 each to Beds 4 Vets, Delaware Center for Homeless Vets, Stop Soldier Suicide, and Newark PAL.
Check out Another Club
On March 9 we will not have our usual meeting. Each member is asked to visit another club, in our area, our region, our state, or elsewhere. Because clubs have changed locations and meeting days and times in the past few years, it is recommended that you search for a club and contact the president to confirm March 9 visitation. You can find all club locations and contact numbers on DaCdb or ask Robin for help.
Reminder: Invoice payments due upon receipt!
