Rotary Alert
AUGUST 2017
  Monthly Report from your District Governor, Scott McAdam
 

Dear Fellow Rotarians:   

  • Well, it is now one month into our new Rotary year, a year to “Make a Difference”.  As of this writing, I have completed 25 club visits and over a dozen installations.  A busy, yet fulfilling month.  If you have never been to the meeting at another club, please, visit one to see how amazing the other clubs in our district really are.  They have some great ideas that may help your club or give you ideas or inspiration.  

  • And speaking of getting ideas, Fall Training is October 14th.  I know, many say “I have already been to training.” But the training does change, we have some great leaders giving you their time and expertise.  It is also a great way to network with other club members and get your newer members engaged into the world of Rotary.  Details and registration will be available shortly.  

  • Other interesting events are coming in August and September.  The Rotary Club of Oak Park River Forest is having their annual Food Truck Rally on Saturday, August 26th.  Food truck, beer garden and lots of activities for kids.  A great day for the family.  The Rotary Cigar Fellows meet August 15th and there are two events on September 8th.  The new Rotary Club of Naperville After Dark has their charter night that evening and the Chicago Rotary Clubs Coalition, a coming together of all the the clubs in the City of Chicago are having an event at the Columbia Yacht Club called “Send Polio Packing”.

  • Speaking of interesting events, Irv and Ruth Kaplan, a high five to you for doing an amazing job on Rotary night at Comiskey Park, Sox Park, Guaranteed Rate Field or whatever you want to call it.  Over 700 turned out to see the Sox play the Blue Jays.  A great evening had by all.  I hope I did not disappoint too many of you with my first pitch to home plate.  

  • The Rotary International club dues invoices have already gone out and the District club dues invoices will be available the week of August 14..  

  • Club President's please mark your calendars for the President's Roundtable the evening of September 21st.
  • To close, we have been making a difference already.  I know that membership has been an issue for many of our clubs.  Please remember, tell a compelling story, every member, bring a guest every quarter to you club.  Get them engaged.  Keep ALL members engaged and send your club members meeting minutes even if there is not much to tell.  The more engaged we are as members, the better we are at telling our story as to WHY Rotary is important in our lives and the lives of others.  

  • Club Events: clubs are busy this time and all times of the year.  Interested in visiting another club, attending a club's special event.....check out the District Events & Calendar.
 

Until next time, enjoy the last remaining time of summer.  Let’s build our clubs and continue to Make a Difference.

Yours in Rotary Service,
 
Scott McAdam
