Program:  We heard reports from the fundraising committee (Ann Troge) and the membership committee (Ralph Smith).
Ann mentioned we will be pursuing another steel drive this fall.  In addition to that, there's the Radio Auction, Soup Fest, a Bingo Night with food and beverages being served is being considered.  The Recipe book should be ready for sale Fall 2021, and they're also considering a Music Fest in the Spring and Fall.  
Ralph talked about the hopes to reschedule a gathering at President John's home as a "fireside" for new members.  He encourages us to invite non members to social events.  The committee is going to work towards logo/signage on projects and increase visibility of Rotary in the community.  And, also encourages recruitment!

Did You Know?

Our District is taking applications for Global Scholars!  We need to find a Global Scholar for the 2022-2023 Rotary year in the next six weeks.  If you know of someone who would benefit from graduate-level course work or research in a country outside of the United States during the 2022-2023 academic year, we want to work with them to possibly be a Rotary Global Scholar.  Please go the Global Scholar section of the District 5970 website for more information or contact the Global Scholar chairperson Chris Lindell.  Watch this video about the program and an interview with past Global Scholar Katie Wilford -
