Taking the Challenge
Past President Percy Rosenbloom (now District Governor) and Governor-nominee Marshall Butler have joined the thousands who have taken the ALS Ice Bucket challenge but with a special Rotary reason. At a weekend Green Cove Springs Rotary Bike Ride honoring Past District Governor Brent Williams they warmed hearts with a chilling experience.

Week 8. Every 4th week the Weekly Minute serves as a recap for the previous three weeks.
Week 5 Recap: This week’s minute served as a reminder to sign-up for the Light Up Rotary Seminar that took place on August 16th. Apparently it worked as we had over 200 D6970 Rotarians fired-up and ready to go last Saturday at the Thrasher-Horne Center.
Week 6 Recap: This week’s minute was intended to spotlight our District’s Rotary Youth Exchange program, better known as RYE Florida. It also congratulated our District’s RYE Committee on a successful and well-attended Welcome Home Dinner for the 26 returning students we sent abroad for a year of study. Keep in mind we are preparing to interview the next round of Outbound RYE applicants in November.
Week 7 Recap: This week’s minute was a shout-out to all of the Rotarians who attended the Light Up Rotary Seminar and a special thanks to the Rotarians who planned, organized and presented – too numerous to mention individually in the Weekly Minute, but very much appreciated by all. All who attended are encouraged to share the information and enthusiasm with your fellow club members.
NOTE: The presentation at the seminar on the historic Membership Satisfaction Survey is available for all to see on this website along with many other interesting stats and information. A huge shout-out goes to South Jax Rotarian and District Trainer Mike Darragh for the insightful and interesting analysis. Click here for the Membership Satisfaction Survey.
