EBAY LIVE AUCTIONS BENEFIT ROTARY

Ebay logo

Rotary members, their families and friends can support Rotary’s work by bidding on antiques, artwork, jewelry, and collectibles through eBay Live Auctions events.

Each month, Rotary will promote on its social media outlets a set of upcoming Live Auctions events, and eBay, the world’s largest auction website, will donate a portion of all sale proceeds from those events to Rotary.

Live Auctions events enable buyers to participate in auctions across the United States — held at such auction houses as Sotheby’s, Swann, and Freeman’s — without leaving home. Under this proceeds-sharing agreement, only U.S. auction sales are eligible.

Becoming a Paul Harris Fellow is an honor to Rotarians.  Frank Lara has accumulated an abundance of Paul Harris Fellow points and has generously offered to transfer some of his extra points to a Nampa Rotary member or members who are working towards becoming a Paul Harris Fellow.  Email Frank at flara@mac.com and let him know what your needs are.  He may be able to assist you.    
 
Thank you, Frank, for your kindness!!

Your 2016-17 Rotary International President, John F. Germ said, "this year is about bringing together committed professionals to achieve remarkable goals by serving humanity.  Now is the time to capitalize on our success...and catapult Rotary forward to be an even greater force for good in the world."
 
The vision is to enhance Rotary's image, boost membership, and leverage Rotary's success into bigger, better partnerships and greater growth.  Germ added that "we need more willing hands, more caring hearts and more bright minds to move our work forward."
 
So how do we do this?  As Nampa Rotarians, it is in our hands to educate more of our friends, community members, business professionals and civic minded people about the intrinsic rewards of being part of such an amazing organization, and also be willing to evolve in order to be more attractive to the younger generation.  It's important we progress forward and adopt more modern digital trends to maintain our public image and showcase the value of being part of such a longstanding and reputable group.
 
In setting our goals, as your president for our 2016-2017 year, I was very aggressive in certain areas in particular, and one challenge I want to specifically achieve, among many, is to increase our membership by 10+.  This means not only attracting new ideal and service-above-self type of members to our vibrant club but also retaining and engaging our current awesome members.  Right now we have 65 members.  The new goal is to end the year strong with 75 members.  Now, I know that is aggressive, but I feel we have all the right members who can attract new members.  We are strong and have a great club with dedicated, committed and deeply caring Rotarians, and...dang....people like us!  They want to be part of what we have!  The more we can share our love for Rotary and spread the good, the more I feel like we can grow.  The more we grow, the more good we can do together in this world.  
 
So I'm asking for your help!  I challenge you to tell others about us often, to bring guests and introduce them to our world, and to get engaged in your club!  Be the Rotarian you wish to be, and share your passion with those you feel would be a good fit for our Rotary family.
 
Don't forget to participate in our centennial celebration for the Rotary Foundation that our Committee put together.  Post and hashtag photos of your involvement, and even your family's involvement, doing good in our community.  If you search, the hashtag phrase types as all one word together with the number sign in front of it on FACEBOOK, Twitter, Instagram, or even just a google search of #100actsofgood will show you how others are doing good all over the world:  #100actsofgood....let's make this movement bigger than #PokemonGo!  (:
 
Many thanks for all that each of you do to serve humanity through Rotary!
