Dear presidents and
Warm greetings as
the monsoon showers are slowly cooling the blistering
heat from the summer days.
Come July, clubs
bustle into fresh activity after hibernating in the hot
months. Installations take place in clubs throughout the
District in the early part of July. Make sure you
install your teams by July 15th at the latest.
A new enthusiasm
as the new team of office bearers take reins of the
club. Expectations raise. Willingness and preparedness
to assist the new president are at the highest.
This is the best time for the new team to grab the
opportunity and give a kick start to the club
activities. You have full 52 weeks for doing good in the
community. Think big, plan meticulously, raise funds and
execute to hit the target.
Do not undertake projects that YOU THINK are the best
for the community! Instead, take up those which the
people really need. That means you need to assess the
needs of the community. That's where your club members
will come to your help too. Being a cross-section of the
society they should be able to help you in assessing the
community needs and designing projects to meet those
needs. Seek their help. Seek the help of the community
leaders and members too.
Remember! when you succeed in involving your members,
and in your planning and implementation, club members
will follow you, and community will support you. No
amount of publicity builds your (club's) image as much
as the projects you do. So, choose your projects
Plan well in advance for August.
Bring in new members that will add to the vibrancy of
your club. 20% growth is our target. Focus on
bringing small groups of women and young persons. Do you
know that you can now bring in homemakers (housewives)
into club?! Your task is made easy!
And see if you can support the District in starting a
new club either in your city or in a town near yours.
Our District Extn. Chair Bhupati Adinarayana has taken
up the task of extending the district by many new clubs.
Accordingly we are appointing several GSRs (Governor's
Special Representatives) to these prospective clubs. If
you think your club can support us in starting a new
club near yours, just call me or Rtn. Adinarayana.
I also appeal to clubs in large towns and cities to
think positively about new clubs. Any town with a
population of about 40-50,000 has a scope for new club.
Thus cities can also have a good number of clubs -
something like one for every 50k population. Think of
Clubs presidents that sponsor new clubs have special
recognitions!! Of course GSRs too!!!
When we have more
hands, we are stronger as we
engage rotary to
change the lives. Aren't we?
Yours in Rotary
