Report ‘2022 Kicks off!
Kelly Bachman announced last week the kick off for the 2022 Report to the Community. This year’s goal is $50,000 in ad sales. Early Bird prices end March 4. All ads are due March 24, and final payments are due April 7. Any ad not paid for by April 7 will not be printed.
Tip #1 : Don’t procrastinate. Get your list together, assume you will need to ask multiple times, and approach people you know.
Tip #2: Plan your work, work your plan. Make an appointment with yourself to make those calls.
Doug Rainey is editor now but will be seeking help from others.
Please welcome to our hybrid meetings Monica Elavarthi, president of the newest UD Rotaract club and Chandana, her vice president and sister. Forms have been signed and submitted to RI for approval of the latest Rotaract club at UD, officially co-sponsored by Wilmington Rotary and Newark Morning Rotary.
What is Rotaract? Community and college-sponsored Rotaract clubs are for young adults, typically up to the time they want to join a regular Rotary club. They form their own by-laws, own leadership, and own direction. They often are aligned with community service. If sponsored by a Rotary club, that club acts as mentor to the Rotaract club and invites them to participate in club activities and projects.
Sitters Needed! No Experience Necessary!
Supporting Kids in Hockessin will need some adult volunteers to sit with their kid clients starting on Feb. 23 while their guardians and foster families meet with staff. Talk with Nancy Chase if you are interested.
