ROTARIANS AND FAMILIES

 The following members and their families need your cares, concerns and prayers.

DOUBLE CREDIT FOR ATTENDANCE & ENGAGEMENT
Make this Your Perfect Year!

This week we honored those Rotarians who achieved either Perfect Attendance and/or 52 Touchpoints in the Rotary Year 2014-15.  At the weekly meeting 23 members received their special Rotary lapel pin indicating the number of years they have achieved perfect attendance, while three members received certificates for earning at least 52 Touchpoints.  This included recognition for Bill Blaine who received his pin for 40 years of perfect attendance.
 
Although in recent years, attendance mandates have become a little more relaxed, honoring perfect attendance is still one of our most time-tested and significant awards.  Members achieving perfect attendance have truly engaged in the Club and have experienced the full measure of being a Columbus Rotarian.  Quoting Hugo Trux, who was honored for 25 years of perfect attendance, “it’s all in what you want to get out of your Rotary experience.” 
 
To encourage perfect attendance and engagement, President Tricia announced that for the remainder of this Rotary year, we will double credits for attendance and Touchpoints from January – June, 2016.
