NEW POLICY

We are fortunate to have numerous projects, activities and events in Columbus Rotary.  And we like to talk about them all on Monday's. Having timely information about these activities, and any announcements, has become a bit difficult to manage of late due to members calling the office late on Friday, over the weekend, or when they arrive at Rotary, needing time on the agenda.

Starting now and as we move into the new Rotary Year on July 1 a new "policy" has been implemented by staff.  If you have an announcement, spotlight, video, PowerPoint, et. al. to be presented at the next Monday Rotary meeting; all information must arrive to the Executive Director by close of business Thursday prior to any meeting.  If your material, or request, arrives later than Thursday EOB the staff reserves the right to delay the presentation to the next available date.  

This will allow the agenda to be completed on Friday.  It will allow any electronic media to be loaded and tested before the meeting.  It will allow the Executive Director to focus on the speaker and new members.  Finally, the meetings will run more smoothly.  

Thank you for your understanding.    

 
MORE COVERAGE FOR THE SAS FAIR

If you missed Dispatch Editor Allan Miller's Column on Sunday, our SAS Fair was yet again mentioned.  To all who volunteered, attended and planned this event...Congratulations.

SAS FAIR MAKES THE NEWS
Our recent Service Above Self High School Fair held at Valley Dale Ballroom received some great press.  As of this writing Columbus Rotary's event was featured in the Columbus Dispatch Metro section, above the fold, and on the Columbus City School's Facebook page.  Mayor Ginther and Superintendent Good were on hand to hear from the students as well as snap some pics with them.  
  
It certainly was a good day.  

See the article here: COLUMBUS DISPATCH

Many people came together to make this all happen and will be thanked publicly in the future.  
ROTARY RIVER TRIP
Cancelled
Lack of interest this year has beached the canoes.  

 
GOLF ANYONE

Our Third Annual Member Guest Golf Invitational is set for Friday, September 29 at the Safari Golf Club.
It includes a dinner and awards for $70 per person.
 
This gathering is designed to provide an opportunity for our members to bring guests to experience Columbus Rotary fun and fellowship in person. Even without golf there will be dinner and camaraderie.  You can join us for a meal if you don't want to golf!
 
It has proven itself as a wonderful way to expose people you think would benefit from being associated within our Club. Membership has its privileges and this is but one of them.
 
Watch for a sign up table on Monday's.  Members will help register both you and your guests for the golf. They can also help with pairings if need be.
 
Thanks for participating in this opportunity to continue our upward momentum.
