Good morning, everyone!
Welcome to the first edition of Mike's Monday Morning Update! The name is different, but the content will be pretty much the same as what President Chris included in his weekly meeting reminder. I plan on having it in your inbox early every Monday morning so that you have the opportunity to read it before you start your week. I also want to emphasize that the Standing Committee Liaisons and all Subcommittee Chairs are strongly encouraged to use this communication platform to communicate with our members. Just send me whatever information you would like to share with our members by Sunday morning each week and I'll include it in the Monday Morning Update!

To date, we have only 105 of the 392 volunteer slots filled for the Rotary Peach Festival on August 17.    This is thanks in large part to generous volunteer commitments from Otter Box and Columbine Health.    We need more Rotarians to sign up and make the 2017 Peach Festival a great success. Please sign up today to join the 16 Foothills members who have already made the commitment.  
To volunteer online, click on this link:  Peach Volunteer Sign Up and you’ll be taken directly to the sign up. The process is identical to previous years. You will not be asked to log in or create a user ID or password.   Please contact Ruth Lutes or Emily Jolly if you have any problems or questions. 
Thank you to Foothills Rotarians who have registered as Peach Festival Volunteers!

Share Rotary on your social media!

You may have noticed that I put a wonderful video upon our club's Facebook page. Please share this with your Facebook friends, along with a personal message which encourages folks to contact you if they'd like to find out more!

This was produced by the Silverdale Rotary Club, and designed for sharing. I added a trailer slide on the end which specifically points back to our club and website.

If you're connected with me on LinkedIn, you may have noticed that I shared it there as well!
