For those of you that were able to attend, thank you so much for making it out!
In case you missed our last meeting, here’s the most important pieces you missed:
Vinyl Valentines 🎶 – The planning for our upcoming event on Feb. 11th is well underway. Please make sure you have bought your own tickets and sell to friends, family and random community members. We also asked that members in attendance put up posters in visible places around the community. Finally, if you have not contacted your sponsors, can you please make sure you do ASAP. Please promote our event as much as possible using #vinylvalentines or #danceyourheartout and sharing our posts on Facebook!
Rotary International Presentation 🌍 – Michael and Shelly Duben gave a touching presentation on Rotary and Rotary International. They included information about the RELAY service project that they founded. Their passion has allowed their project that started in Ghana, to expand to Kenya, Ethiopia, and Mozambique over the past 15 years. Their project includes, installing washrooms, renovating schools, providing classroom materials and clothing. Their next project is likely in Zambia within the next year; if you are interest in taking part in their project, contact them directly. There are many other international projects available or you can create your own if you have a strong contact! If you would like to help out with the Interval House in Bracebridge, contact Shelly. If you are passionate about something locally or internationally, please let us know.
