Facebook Changes Planned for 2015
By Bill Learn
As our club strives to recruit younger members and enhance our relevance to our community in the 21st Century, the Board of Directors has determined that a closed Facebook group is not in our best interests. Consequently, effective December 31, the closed group will be deleted. In its place, our club will feature more information on our open Facebook page which is accessible by anyone with a Facebook account, including visiting Rotarians, potential members and our community partners.
Week 24. A Summary of the Month of December
FIRST...A SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT
PDG Brent Williams received the E.T. and Vam York Service Above Self Award last week. The award ceremony took place at his home club, Rotary Club of Gainesville, where several past and future District Governors in attendance.
Week 21: A shout-out to Brent Coates who was selected last week by our District Nominating Committee to serve as District Governor for the 2017-2018 Rotary year. Brent is a member of the Rotary Club of Palatka Sunrise and has served in a number of District positions…Also an FYI -- last month several of our district leaders attended the Zone 33/34 Institute in Asheville, North Carolina… And, a thanks to all of the volunteers who interviewed our RYE outbound applicants.
Week 22: A reminder that December is Family month – a time to celebrate and appreciate family in its many connotations. You were encouraged to expand our celebration and appreciation of family to include the Family of Rotary – those we serve, as well as those who help us serve. You were also encouraged, if appropriate, to include Interact and Rotaract members in your holiday meetings and events. Good thoughts to keep in mind as we consider what family means to us personally, to our clubs and to Rotary.
Week 23: Notification to start thinking about the awards that will be presented at our District Conference in May. And an alert that RI President Gary C.K. Huang has revamped the Presidential Citation during his year to make it more challenging. Preparing for this award will strengthen your club.
