Dictionary Help

It’s that time when school starts that we distribute FREE student dictionaries to third graders in local schools. Laura DelPercio is heading up the project but we need more volunteers to distribute.

Flags For Heroes underway

Sponsorships, both business and individual,  for our FFH program are n ow available. You can access the info, reserve a flag, and pay at our website nmrde.org. The goal this year is $25,000, only $5,000 more than last year.

The first IMPACT club in our distict is now official! We have our initial 8 required members but could always use more. Do you know someone who is service minded but can’t attend our regular Rotary meetings? Give their name and contact info to Paul Keely for an invitation to join. Our first 8 members will be inducted at a social on Wednesday, Sept. 20 at 5 p.m. at Grain Exchange on STAR campus. Everyone is invited.
And support the IMPACT activity
If your schedule allows, register with Food Bank of Delaware at fdb.org to assist the IMPACT members in their first service project. Tuesday, Sept. 26, from 9 a.m. to noon.
100% Attendance
Only four members received acknowledgment for getting 100% attendance last Rotary year. Every member has the chance to get that recognition this year. Every time you attend a committee meeting, work on a service project, attend a Board meeting, or attend another club’s meeting, pleased let Secretary BJ know and she will give you credit. Let’s make this a 100% attendance year for the whole club!
Reminder: Invoice payments due upon receipt!

Thought for the Week:
