Shredding & Electronic Recycling Event

In participation with ProShred, URC will host a fundraiser on September 23rd from 9AM-12PM at St. Elizabeth Church (74th Street between Wornall and Main in the back parking lot of church) by helping the community shred documents and recycle electronics. This event is donation based, a general donation for paper shredding and a suggested $5 donation for most items dropped off. For a list of what can be recycled (almost anything!), click here.

Last Friday's speaker Joe Reardon of the KC Chamber of Commerce described the challenges of our current airport, built in 1972, and the rationale to build a new facility. To learn more about A Better KCI, Joe says:

Rotarians are invited to be a part of the district Group Study Exchange (GSE) to Chile in 2017-18.  Rotarians have all air flights, food and lodging expenses paid and will be traveling from April 7, - April 27, 2018. The study exchange focuses on developing humanitarian service projects as well as vocational and cultural experiences. 
In just over a year, a Rotary Club in Minnesota brought in 31 new members, 11 of them women and eight of them under 40 years old.  How did they do it?  This week and in following weeks, we will present the club’s 10 Tips for recruiting new members.

Tip #2
Keep a list of potential recruits. It doesn’t matter if it’s a paper list or if it’s kept on the desktop of your computer – it just makes you think about those people and others that may be a fit for your club.
 
Check next week for your next Tip!
