We have a new effort to raise awareness of Rotary and publicize club events! An application for clubs to get additional funding from the District is available for download on this website, titled Rotary Awareness Campaign Application. Groups of clubs in a geographic area and media reach can band together to put dollars into a media campaign. Call me for more information. Deadline is January 15.

Public Image Citations went to Vermillion and LeMars clubs for 2015-16 publicity efforts. Thanks to these clubs and several others in the District for their excellent community awareness efforts for their clubs. Available again for the second year is the Public Image Citation Application for your club. New goals are listed, so download the file from the District website and make new efforts to publicize your club projects and events.

I have a great powerpoint on “Publicizing an Event” that I would be happy to present to your club or event committee. I also have website and social media training that will assist your club in using these digital tools. Please contact me to schedule! I will travel anywhere in the District to meet with your club.

The year-long celebration of The Rotary Foundation’s centennial was kicked-off at the 2016 International Convention in Seoul, Korea on May 28th. The celebration will mark a century of “Doing Good in the World” through humanitarian projects, scholarships, professional training and exchanges, and the remarkable campaign for a polio-free world.
In 2016-17, Rotary clubs throughout the world have been urged to organize Rotary Days to celebrate this milestone by showcasing the Foundation’s rich history and good work. The resources
     A number of Rotarians and clubs in our District already support the School for St. Jude in Tanzania. We have had personal visits to our District from Gemma, who started the school. If you do support, thank you!
 If your club would like to provide support, but do not have the resources for the full donation, here is a great option. Our District sent $1320 in May to St. Jude for this year. We are on our way to making a difference in our world by changing the future for one very poor, bright child in Arusha, Tanzania and helping in the classroom of a very dedicated teacher.  Together we are all making our world a better place!!
