Next Meeting: On Tuesday, 22 August, will be a regular meeting back at the brewery. For August, the last two (2) Tuesdays will be club planning meetings as follows:
8/22: Committee Strategy Planning Meetings Committees will meet to discuss their plans for the coming year! The club will dedicate time for each committee to discuss: 1. The committee's mission 2. Goals for this year 3. Steps to reach the goals 4. Timeline for the year
8/29: Committee Reports and Discussion Committee Chairs will report to the club on their meetings from 8/29 with the other members of the club available to ask questions, provide ideas, and endorse committee plans for the year.
We encourage all club members to attend both meetings for input, feedback, and participation as we plan activities for the coming year!
There are plenty of events coming up including meetings with speakers who present on community areas we might support, or service projects we plan to work. Read below for more information!
Rotary clubs of District 6200 (based in Lafayette, La.) are collecting relief funds to help thousands of victims after record flooding devastated communities in southern Louisiana earlier this month. Torrential rains caused rivers, streams, and bayous to swell, damaging or destroying more than 60,000 homes and killing at least 13 people. The U.S. Coast Guard and emergency responders helped rescue more than 30,000 residents from the rising flood waters. As of 25 August, more than 3,000 residents were still in emergency shelters even after the water receded. If you would like to help, you can contribute online or learn where to send money.
