This Friday's Meeting
We Need You for a Club Conversation ...

This week’s meeting is a Club Assembly. I have three items that I’d like to cover:

  1. Budget -vs- Actuals – Report to the club where we are on spending.
  2. GRSP – An interesting Pilot Program has been offered us. When the Board took it under consideration it became obvious that the entire club needs to weigh in on the decision. I will provide an overview of GRSP and then present the Pilot Program. We’ll discuss.
  3. Club Sponsors – Continuation of the Que for Good requires sponsors for it to become a primary fund raiser. External sponsors, non-club members, are Scuf and Northside Hospital (NSH). The Que needs much larger sponsors. So, instead of event sponsors I’m considering club sponsors. I have a dialog going with NSH whereby they would sponsor the club and in return get PR and exposure at all our events. I’d like feedback before I make the final offer.

This part of the conversation should take about an hour. Please let me know if there are topics that you’d like to discuss.

I hope I see you on Friday.

No Meeting January 11

Because of our GRSP Leadership weekend, there will be no Rotary meeting next Friday, January 11. Read the next story and see how you can participate in the GRSP weekend.

GRSP Leadership Weekend
Join Us as We Welcome the World Next Week

We have 46 students from the Georgia Rotary Student Program joining us in Atlanta next weekend for skills building, community service, fellowship and just plain fun! Thanks to Louise Barden and her team for all the planning and to the 15 Dunwoody weekend host families, three group dinner hosts (the Stouts, the Brumfields and Jackie Cuthbert) and many committee members that have helped to pull this weekend together.

Is there still an opportunity to join in all the fun? Of course. Think about joining us at Oglethorpe to help pack 10,000 meals for Rise Against Hunger from 3:15 - 5:15 pm on Saturday afternoon; Louise might still need some helpers to set up that food packing project earlier in the afternoon. Just contact Louise to see if you can attend or help with art of the event!
