Notes from
President Gary

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!
Time to grow the club…and we need all of you to help do it. 
As you may have heard, things are a bit weird these days, and that’s impacted our membership. We’re not alone in that…clubs around the country are dealing with the membership declines and departures. And while we do what we can to attract members year-round - and thank you to those who have brought us, new members, this past year – this year’s membership drive is particularly important. Members drive the club; members drive the club impact, and members drive club impact to help all of the communities we serve.
This year’s month-long membership drive goal is 25 new members – and as an added incentive, at the end of the drive – there will be a drawing with one of our visitors/guests having their initiation fee and dues covered by a generous Rotarian. But, please make sure the guest you bring is interested in joining the Club, because if the chosen winner leaves the Club before the end of their first year – the sponsoring Rotarian will make a donation to RCS, equal to half the new Rotarian’s dues. But if the new Rotarian becomes a dues-paying member in their second year, that same generous Rotarian will cover the dues for the sponsoring Rotarian as well.
But wait, there’s more – The Membership Development Committee has some other fun things (prizes) in-store.
We’ve had a number of guests over the past few weeks – thanks to some really interesting programs. And with debate season around the corner, this is a great time to introduce friends, neighbors, co-workers to Rotary 21. 
I’m looking forward to seeing what the Membership Development team has in store. This should be a fun and interesting several weeks- so bring a friend (or two).
See you on Thursday!

Upcoming Programs

September 24, 2020
Appellate Court Debate:
Marshall Casey and Tracy Staab
Rotary 21 has a decades long tradition of hosting debates between candidates seeking public office, and have done so as a community service to help citizens make informed voting choices. Rotary is apolitical and does not support, endorse or oppose any candidate. Please note that Rotary is a private membership organization and as such the debate is not open to the general public. However, we strongly encourage members to invite guests so long as those members reserve a guest spot by Monday, September 21st
Have a question you'd like to have the candidates answer? Submit your questions to the Rotary Office by CLICKING HERE.
All questions for the debate come from Rotary 21 members.  Please submit yours no later than Monday, September 21st.
By attending the debate, you agree to abide by our debate audience rules. Click here to request a copy.
