PLANT A TREE AND SEND US A PHOTO OF YOUR WORK
One of RI President Ian Riseley has announced that he would like each and every Rotarian to plant a tree this year. It doesn't matter what kind of tree, or how big it is! Just plant a tree.
Can you imagine the impact this would have on the world? If all 1.3 Million Rotarians plant a tree, the world will benefit from having Mother Nature help cleanse the air, create more oxygen, and beautify the Earth.
At one point, we were considering purchasing seedling trees for our members, but the Board decided, after discussion, to have each individual member choose what type of tree, what size of tree, and where to plant the tree.
This time of year is great for planting trees, plus we would like our Club to be one of the first to be 100% in participation. We do have a few members who have offered to plant your tree for you if you need assistance.
We need to have this project completed by March 31, 2018.
After you have planted your tree, please take a photo of
you and your tree and send it to Dwayne Lee, Director of Administration. Please email the photo to:

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
