Great Job on Beaver Pkwy Clean-Up

Excellent to have a good turnout of Rotarians, a spouse, a past Rotarian, and other helpers to do a good clean-up of the Parkway on June 13. Some may be turned off by picking up others trash, some may feel we pay enough taxes - the State should do it - whatever plus and minus to those comments, we have helped the community with this task for over 25 years. Grand Island Rotary can be proud of its effort and consistency. Be proud of Rotary!

Sign Up to Help with Meetings - Be on a POD!

We started, this year, having you join a POD so that you could help with simple (some not-so-simple) things in running a meeting: leading Pledge of Allegiance, introducing or thanking speaker, finding programs, etc. On May 30, Incoming Pres. Sherry Miller sent you an Email: Rotary POD Sign ups asking you to go on Sign Up Genius thru that Email and agree to be on one of the 3 Month POD groups. Please go, thru that Email to the Sign Up page and pick a 3 month period that works best for you.

Let's try a Safe Picnic Meeting!

July 22 at the Launch Club Pavilion

We will have a social evening at the outdoor Pavilion of the Launch Club             on Wed. July 22 at 6 PM to begin a bit of >SAFE< socializing. We are still working final details of menu and other arrangements, please alert your spouse, any special friends, be ready to rejoin the outside social world!

In August we will concentrate on Membership.  Start by talking to your fellow Members of Grand Island Rotary, remind yourselves of what you like about Rotary, what you pleasantly remember, of our activities; then take those thoughts around to your friends, neighbors, acquaintances; explain the good and great of Rotary services and experiences, offer them a chance to see, hear, more thru attending meetings and events.
