Do you LOVE Rotary? February gives us a perfect pairing to celebrate: Valentine’s Day the 14th and Rotary’s 115th birthday on the 23rd . Why not have a celebration of both and promote membership development around these annual milestones? Even though the 23rd is on Sunday, have a special program the week before or after. Get a Rotary birthday cake and INVITE GUESTS for a special program on your signature service project and fund raiser. Tell them about your club’s impact on your community and the world. So much to tell…so little time! Many hands make light work, so won’t you join us?!! Invite your mayor to attend to present a declaration of (your town’s) Rotary day for your club on February 23rd and get social media/newspaper/tv coverage to build recognition. Any other bright ideas?! 
As for numbers, District 5830 is a net 9 new members for the Rotary year. If you have a special membership incentive or contest, please share your ideas/plans with PDG Lee Montgomery at Other clubs could benefit from your actions and inspiration!
