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!

April 24th Rotation Day

Our Rotation Day this month, April 24th, will be to have four teams working at local charities:

  • Homeless Gear
  • Crossroads Safehouse
  • Catholic Charities
  • Food Bank

Make sure to sign up by sending an email to Mike Hohl - there are still a few slots open. This is the day to apply our hands, minds and energy to our community!

What is Rotation Day? This is a powerful part of Rotary's heritage, coming from the days where each meeting was held at a different member's location. Our club has done that once or twice a year, but in this case the focus is on "rotating away from our usual format" to make powerful contributions more directly.
