WEEK 29 - BEGINNING JANUARY 16
This past weekend, Rotary District 6970 hosted the inaugural Rotary Means Business Summit. This was the first event of its kind anywhere on Earth! Not only did Rotarians from across the District attend, there were also Rotarians in attendance from across the state of Florida, as well as North Carolina and Grand Cayman Islands! The entire event was extremely well organized, the speakers inspiring and as always the food incredible. Thanks to Mark Vickers and the entire Rotary Means Business committee for a job well done!
STOP HUNGER NOW
Fletcher High School’s Interact club will host the annual Stop Hunger Now event on February 18. Stop Hunger Now is a multi-club project with a goal to end world hunger. Tens of thousands meals are packaged and then shipped out to places all over the globe. In addition to Interact clubs, members of Rotary and Rotaract clubs also participate. Participants from each club will work together package meals in assembly line fashion, and hopefully have fun doing it. If your club is interested in participating, or would like to contribute funds to maximize the number of packaged meals prepared, please contact John Dion at email@example.com or (904) 707-1913.
VOLUNTEER FOR ATLANTA 2017
Rotary District 6970 will be well represented at the 2017 Rotary International Convention in Atlanta. Because the convention is in our backyard, it is requested that we assist in providing Southern hospitality to the tens of thousands of Rotarians who will be attending from around the world. If you are interested in being a part of the volunteer team and having the opportunity to make new friends while having a great time, visit www.rotaryconvention2017.org/volunteer
Only 142 days until the All Star Conference in Atlanta!
Yours in Rotary,
Twenty one outbound exchange students (RYE) beamed with excitement after learning which country they will be assigned to when its their turn to head abroad. Rotary Youth Exchange coordinators say not one student of family objected or showed disatisfaction with the assigned country.
More than 125 attended the announcement ceremony which included the outbound candidates, parents, Rotarians from the district, Rotex, Rebounds and Inbound students.
