District Newsletter – Membership Matters!

Posted by on Jun 19, 2017 in News | 0 comments

  Welcome to my first monthly newsletter as your new District Membership Chair and I look forward to serving you all as a useful resource in the months and years ahead. I was privileged to be invited to take up this exciting role by new DG Bobbi Bird and on the pretext that there is no pressure given that my predecessor, PDG Tim Milligan, only achieved membership growth in each of his 3 years serving the District! I would like to thank Tim for his exemplary service and for his mentorship while also agreeing to assist me as our new...

June Foundation Report – PDG Pete Doragh

Posted by on Jun 1, 2017 in News | 0 comments

It is crunch time now and we need your help to run through the finish line. Having just completed a wonderful District Conference at which we learned a lot about the status of Polio eradication (all good news!) and about the creative ways Clubs are making powerful use of The Rotary Foundation to serve their communities and the world, it might seem like there is little left to do.  But before we can rest and before the excitement of a fresh year with enthusiastic new leadership inspires us, we need to make sure we finish what we have begun for...

Posted by on May 31, 2017 in News | 0 comments

Congratulations to the Rotary Club of Naples Bay!  This Club has had an incredible journey this year.  Their membership suffered under the weight of relocations and resignations and were reduced to less than 20 members early in the year.  With strong leadership and active recruitment, they now are near 30 members. Their service in the community has made the difference and has attracted participants.  Their recent sneakers program has grown beyond their expectations.  After the District Conference service project of stuffing backpacks for the...

Posted by on May 15, 2017 in News | 0 comments

The Rotary Clubs of Murdock, Englewood and North Port Central had a “Fun Raiser” event at the Stone Crabs – Miracle baseball game.  The event’s purpose was to help educate children and parents about water safety. “Josh the Otter” is quickly becoming a Rotary symbol for water safety.  The “Joshua Collingsworth Memorial Foundation” was formed when Blake and Kathy Collingsworth lost their son Joshua to drowning in their family pool in 2008.  The “Josh the Otter” mascot was there to throw out the first pitch to start the game.
