President‟s Corner

  On Saturday, August 25th, the District 6060 Leadership Committee conducted one of three district-wide
assemblies and workshops on the campus of Southeast Missouri State University in Cape Girardeau. Although
participation was light, attendance by members of Cape West was surpassed only by the contingent from the
Piedmont Club. The workshop was split into two areas of discussion: The Rotary Foundation and Rotary
membership. As you know, both of these topics are at the forefront of the District Governors agenda.

  In the Rotary Foundation workshops, Todd Lindley did an excellent job explaining the different educational
and humanitarian programs. Educational programs consist of several scholarship opportunities, and the
humanitarian programs consist of various types of grants available to clubs. Our attendance at this workshop
will enable our club to apply for a CAP grant through the district. There will be more about this possible grant
application at the club business meeting later this month.

   Another foundation topic was EREY: “Every Rotarian, Every Year”. This programstrives to have every
Rotarian be a „sustaining member‟, meaning each member gives at least $100 per year to the Rotary
Foundation. One way to become a sustaining member is to have $25 added to your quarterly bill. Did you know
there are only about 12 members of our club who are not sustaining members? Wouldn‟t it be terrific if Cape
West became the first club in our district to be a 100% sustaining member club? Think about it, for roughly 27
cents a day you can become a sustaining member. I challenge you to make this commitment to the Rotary

   The other topic of discussion at the workshops was membership. Did you know that, nationwide, membership
in all service clubs is declining? Every year, we commit ourselves to this organization to ensure that Rotary
continues to thrive and make a difference in our community. At the workshop, the question was asked, “Why
join Rotary over another service organization?” This is a very good question, and an important factor in our
ongoing efforts to recruit and retain members. How would you answer? Why did YOU become a Rotarian?
Why are you STILL a Rotarian? Sharing the answers to these questions may be the deciding factor for many
prospective members. What say you???

Finally, as many of you know, fellow Rotarian Jim Welk had open-heart surgery this past week. Please keep
Jim in your thoughts and prayers. We need to get him healthy and back to the 50/50 drawing to see if we can
figure out when the joker will finally be added to what‟s left of the deck.

And remember, “Rotary Shares”, So Share Rotary.

Who was it that brought you to your first Rotary Meeting? Why did you join? Most importantly, why do you
stay a Rotarian today? Find the answers to these questions within yourself and then ASK someone else to come
to a Rotary meeting with you today! - District Governor Scott Harness

Wear your rotary pin when you are out and see how many people stop to ask what that stands for.
Ask your best friend to visit Rotary, then you can eat together every Thursday. They will learn what
Rotary is all about and then want to join.

Contact our Membership Chair, Linda D. Puchbauer cell 573-579-
9605 if you have any questions about inviting a guest to Cape West Rotary.
