August is Membership and New Club Development 

As I have visited clubs and met with club leadership, I have learned that membership is of prime concern.  A cursory glance at the comments on the short survey given at each club illustrates that club members share their leadership's concerns.

Rotary International is encouraging clubs to be innovative in addressing membership strategies.  They recognize at least seven different types of clubs: traditional clubs, satellites, e-clubs, passport clubs, corporate clubs, cause-based clubs, and Rotaract clubs.  RI is encouraging clubs to innovate in developing more club formats as well as more membership types.

Vermillion Rotary Duck Race Raises Money for Community Center

On June 14, the Vermillion Rotary Club held the Vermillion Rotary Duck Race at the Prentis Plunge Aquatics Center in Prentis Park, Vermillion.  This fundraising event served to not only provide a fun community event, but also to raise funds for the New Community Connections Center.
