ROTARY FLOAT TRIP
go / no-go TBD

Jackie Cooper is in daily contact with our Kayak guide to determine if the event will be held this week.
She has also been actively communicating with all who signed up on the matter.
The river is extremely high with the amount of rain we've had.

NOTE FROM PRESIDENT CALLOWAY
Dear Fellow Columbus Rotarians:
 
My farewell remarks were presented in Power Point Slides at Rotary on Monday.
 
As promised and as written in my "Mid-Year Letter about Columbus Rotary" January 12, 2019, I said here is my farewell speech and will be my remarks in June.
 
"Having served as Columbus Rotary President was an honor.
 
One of my most significant years of growth in my life.
 
Thank you for the privilege to have served the Club, You and the Community.
 
I will continue to serve."
 
 
Kathy Sullivan was magnificent as our guest speaker this past Monday for "Bring Your Graduate to Rotary".
 
It was a special day for many proud Rotarians with their graduates!
 
I led a special 50/50 raffle with an idea that I borrowed from our District Conference this past April and my idea for a good Rotary PR cause for all the good Rotary does.
 
Jerry Converse led the raffle sales at $10 each for a playing card.  He sold out with all 52 taken for $520 raised with 50% for the Rotary International Float in the Rose Bowl Parade this January 1st!
 
The final four still standing as I played it out for who should sit down or continue standing were Jerry Converse, Scott Brown, Mike Schoedinger and JoAnne Schorsten.  Well, JoAnne just may be hosting the next After Hours with $260.
 
It was a lot of fun and most importantly the raffle raised $260 for our Columbus Rotary contribution to the Rotary float in the Rose Bowl Parade.
 
Now is the time to sign up for the 2nd Annual Columbus Rotary Picnic that was such a good time with family and friends last fall for our 1st picnic.
 
The CRC picnic is this Sunday, June 23rd with details in this letter and on our calendar.  Please email/call Mark LaMonte to sign up this week.
 
It is also time to look ahead to Saturday, June 29th for our Columbus Rotary Indian Dance for Polio Plus fundraiser with details in this letter and on our calendar.  Please email/call Anish Doshi if you have questions.
 
Thank you to Mike Rankin who stepped up to his role as I appointed him this year as "Vice President of Disruption".  He produced a CRC slide show with captions and his narratives that were fun.
 
Thank you for making 2018-2019 a great year for Columbus Rotary.
 
Be the Inspiration!
 
Yours in Rotary, President Calloway
