Presidential Theme for 2018-2019

 
North Notes
Spokane North Rotary Club Bulletin
July 9, 2018        
 
Briefly:
 
          Our new schedule: President-elect Lenore Romney and the officers and directors welcome major Rotary calendar year changes (detailed below) to our Monday biweekly programs and monthly gatherings and service efforts.  Please check e-mail notes, Facebook and the bulletin for changes.
 
          Thanks for your service: Brad Stark, longtime member, director and for several years our club program director has resigned.  Brad cited added workplace and family commitments as he offered his resignation.  The members thank him for his fine work for the club.
 
  Here is the new Rotary-North lineup:
           
           Rotary Listens: Luncheons will meet on the 1st and 3rd Mondays (except on federal holidays).  The next meeting is July 16 at noon at Nectar Wine and Beer, 1331 W. Summit Parkway in Kendall Yards.  Next month, the luncheon meetings are Aug. 6 and Aug. 20, also at Nectar.  The club will not meet Sept. 3 (Labor Day), and will meet Sept. 17 to discuss fall fund-raising plans.
         
           Rotary Connects:  Club “meet-up” gatherings are scheduled the second Monday of each month, starting at 4:30 p.m.
 
            At the first gathering July 9 – despite the 90-degree heat and usual vacation trips – some 15 people filled a large section at Nectar.  They included some spouses, a few prospective club members and a Club 21 director.
 
           The fellowship times are open to Rotarians, spouses, friends, prospective members and others interested in Rotary.  Locations will change each month and members are encouraged to suggest venues.
 
          Next month’s Connect is 4:30 p.m., Aug.13 at the Maryhill Winery Tasting Room, 1203 W. Summit Parkway (just east of Nectar),
 
          Rotary Serves: A service time is scheduled each 4th week of the month, with time and dates adjusted as needed to suit the tasks.
         
          The first service project is Monday, July 23 at 1 p.m. at Second Harvest food bank, 1234 E. Front Ave.  Coordinator Sandy Fink said our club’s commitment is for one hour, but members are welcomed to stay as late as 4 p.m.
 
            Next month’s service project, Aug. 27 at noon, is filling the Holmes Elementary supply closet with boxes of pens, pencils, tissues, notebooks and other items which are placed there for use during the school year.  We will also deliver some “beginning of the year” supplies to each classroom with a greeting from Spokane North.  Sandy is suppling pizza and drinksJ!!  Holmes is located at 2600 W. Sharp.
 
            “Rotary Serves” succeeds what club members once called “dirty hands” projects.   Members are encouraged to propose potential service projects for non-profit organizations.
 
             When a 5th Monday occurs in a month -- such as July 30 -- that is an off day for the club.

OUR FIRST ROTARY SERVES PROJECT!!!
 
SERVICE ABOVE SELF
That is a primary purpose of ROTARY.  Now each club member, and as many spouses/significant others as you invite, will have such an
opportunity in our community.
On Monday, July 23rd at 1pm, as our monthly Service Project, we will gather at Second Harvest Food Bank at 1234 East Front Ave in Spokane to help with an Event.                          .
                                                      .
Our commitment will be for one hour of service BUT the Event will last until 4pm and we are welcome to stay as long as we can!

NECTAR WINE BAR      KENDALL YARDS

Hey friends and fellow Rotarians join us on Monday July 9th at 4:30pm for our first ever Rotary Meetup event at Nectar Wine & Beer in Kendall Yards. We call it Rotary Connect and it will happen at 4:30pm on the 2nd Monday each month. We'll announce the location on our Facebook page and our website home  page.                                                                                                                                                                                                                             

Rotary was founded on fellowship and we want to make it a more prominent part of our Club by dedicating a week each month for the purpose of socializing, networking and just having a good time. The venue will change each month to take advantage of Spokane's wonderful happy hour scene. Whether you are a Rotarian or interested in meeting Rotarians, join us for Rotary Connect. Look for the Spokane North Rotary Club table sign - that's how you'll know you've found us!

This is a no-host event.
