Welcome to the 2nd week of July, 2019 and our first meeting of the New Rotary Year.

The Board of Directors gathered Wednesday morning for our regular monthly meeting at the Countrie Eatery. There’s more to operating the Dover Colonial Rotary Club than most people would think. I’ll have everything figured out by about next April. (smile)

You are welcome to attend a meeting to learn more about how the club operates and what goes into deciding whom we offer to benefit each year. Just let me know if you’ll be there so we’ll have a seat for you. We order breakfast off their menu.

The quality of our programs each week is part of what sets Colonial Rotary apart from other clubs. If you have an program idea or know of someone you think would bring a topic of interest to our members, please let Ceil Jones or Amy Dotson-Newton know and we’ll invite them. We’d be like to know more about our member’s hobbys and interests too.

This week we’ll welcome Wayne Woodzel who will talk about the local child care program, Mom’s House.

Yours In Rotary Service,

Alex Vaughan president

Welcome to this 1st week of July, 2019. I’m looking forward to the coming year and the new avenues of service we will discover and add to those we already have/maintain/.

Here are two items for your calendar for early July:

  1. Club members: there will be no Rotary meeting Friday, July 5th. If you do go to Maple Dale, have one of the staffers on duty that day sign and date the back of your business card to avoid Dr. Gilbert’s fine.
  2. Officers and Board members: Please join me for our first Board meeting at 7AM on Wednesday, July 10th at the Countrie Eatery. Their staff will have our meeting table set up in the front room and because they do not charge us for the meeting space or set up, I encourage you to order breakfast off the menu in appreciation for the services they provide.

For man, our Rotary meetings are an important mile post each week. I look forward to seeing my friends to catch up on social and business goings on during the meeting each week.

Interesting, instructive or thought provoking programs are a central part of our weekly meetings. We appreciate so much that Ceil Jones and Amy Newton have agreed to work together to discover, schedule and coordinate our weekly programs. But, we need your help to continue to find the quality programs we look forward to each week. Please keep your eyes and ears open to find program topics and presenters for our meetings and let either Ceil or Amy know about them.

Yours In Rotary Service,

Alex Vaughan president

This past Monday I presented our scholarship winner, Emily Synoski, a check for $3000. Emily was recognized by several organizations and was the recipient of several other scholarships. I am sure she will make good use of the money.

Mike Gast will make a presentation on the Rotary International Foundation at the June 14th meeting. There will be some exciting announcements made then.

I presided over my last board meeting as your president today. As you know Alex will be taking the helm at our changing of the guard ceremony on June 28th.

President Paul
