Annual Services CAMPAIGN KICKS OFF WITH NEW MATCH PROGRAM

A new Annual Services Campaign program that matches any increase in your donation over last year’s contribution is off to a strong start after the official Campaign Kickoff at Monday’s club meeting.  Campaign co-chairs Club PE Amanda Bowen and Nanci McCorkle are focusing this year’s campaign on children to commemorate the 100th year that Columbus Rotary has provided a holiday party, gifts and a visit from Santa to the students at Colerain Elementary School.
 
“Not many service organizations can boast about supporting a special group in our community for 100 years,” Chip Chapman, club president, said.  "The children count on us every year to make their holiday a little brighter."

Parking: Drive South and park in the parking lot next to the boat dock. There is plenty of open grass space and a large covered pavilion.
I Dare You
Following a tenant of his Presidential speech, Chip has introduced this pin that we will use to award to members this year for meeting his call to action.  He first asked that you check in on someone not on the Monday Zoom call.  That's something we should do each week. 

This week's Dare - Give More to the Annual Campaign than last year
How you are coming along with the I Dare You Bingo?   These all help you along with that game.
Dana Vogelmeier has turned in her BINGO card to earn the pin below.  How are you coming?

SAVED BY FELLOW ROTARIANS
Value of the Rotary Network — “Saved by fellow Rotarians”
A few weeks back, I was being aggressively pursued to “pitch” my novel The Chinese Conspiracy to movie producers. (For a fee of course!)  I’ve had dozens of such approaches, but all to “republish/relaunch” the book. (For a fee of course!)
