     Please REPORT your "volunteer hours"!  One of this Rotary year's focuses is tracking the number of volunteer hours given by Rotarians. So, if you are a team captain, committee chairman, or merely a part of a group of people who perform a project or service, please send an email to Dwayne Lee at southernflair@sbcglobal.net  to report the number of volunteer hours expended so that we can report to Rotary International.
Ways to do a "Make-up"
  1. Go to: https://www.rotaryeclubone.org/programs.htm and watch a video or read an article.
  2. Attend a Sunrise Rotary social event. (Christmas party and other Sunrise social gatherings)
  3. Work on a Sunrise Rotary project (flags,PhasedIn, Blood drive, Highland games, etc.)
  4. Attend a Sunrise Rotary Board meeting. (1st Tuesday, 7:00 a.m., David's BBQ)
  5. If you're in a travel status, get the Rotary Club Finder app for your smartphone and find a Club in/near the town you are visiting - even outside of the United States!
  6. Attend another local Rotary Club meeting. There are seven other Rotary Clubs in Arlington that you can make up at. Here's a list of them:
    • Arlington North Rotary, Monday at Noon, Texas Land & Cattle, N. Arlington
    • Arlington West Rotary, Tuesday at Noon, Shady Valley Golf Club
    • Arlington Highlands Rotary, Tuesday at 6 p.m., Dave & Busters in the Highlands
    • Arlington Sunset Rotary, Tuesday at 6 p.m., J. Gilligan's on E. Abram
    • Arlington Rotary, Thursday at Noon, 1st United Methodist Church
    • Arlington Great Southwest Rotary, Thursday at 6 p.m., Humperdink's @ 6 Flags
    • Arlington South Rotary, Friday at Noon, Spring Creek BBQ, S. Cooper
Here's the catch:

     You literally have a whole month in order to work your "make up" into your busy schedule - within 2 weeks prior to the meeting you will miss and within 2 weeks after the meeting you miss.

So you see, there really is no valid excuse  for you not having PERFECT ATTENDANCE.
 But there is one major step to ensure your make-up is validated - you must report it to Club Secretary Sheri Hall at  sherilhall@gmail.com.
