CART Buckets Challenge

CART Total is now at $4,224.23 for our Rotary Year.
Our Challenge Goal for the end of this Rotary year is $5,000.
On May 9, CART awarded 6 research grants for a total of $700,000.
It is apparent we are participating in something very big!

On May 8, we collected $167 (about $1.40 per member).
If we donate at least $167 at each of our remaining 5 meetings 
in May and June, we will reach our goal of $5,000 by the End of the Year.

Our Challenge Days were great:  Aug 5 = $661;    March 6 = $1,142.
So. let’s make a big splash this Monday with coins and paper money!

Flags of Rotary Clubs Worldwide

We can now be more aware of the International nature of Rotary, thanks to President BC’s goal of having international flags on our tables to represent the many countries where Rotary has clubs.

Sets of 7 international flags, 96 countries,
will be on our lunch tables.  And this is not all of the countries!

Members attend the Rotary Leadership Institute

Six Durham Rotary members learned a lot about being leaders in Rotary when they attended the Zone 33 Rotary Leadership Institute in Cary, Sat., Jan. 14.

 

L-R:   E-Club Members Jheanne Schack and Kathy Roadcup, joined with Durham Rotary Members Marie Baker, Geraud Staton, Erik Benson, Stan Morris, E-Club Member Eve Marion,  Brady Surles and Kim Shaw, and Asst. District Governor Joyce McKinney for a full Saturday of Rotary information and sharing ideas with other Rotarians from throughout Eastern North Carolina.

The workshops focused on Leadership Skills, Engaging Members, Service Projects, Ethics and Vocational Service, the Rotary Foundation, Team Building, Club Communications, and Strategic Planning.  We look forward to our club benefiting from the many good ideas this group gained from this Leadership Institute.
