    • More Grants
    • Local Service Hours
  • More Friends – Target 20 new members for the year
    • Inspire prospects we meet while on community projects
    • Like the TEETH of the Rotary Wheel — our members surround and empower you
    • “Wrap Yourself in Rotary” Rotary Wraps you with Friends, Fun and Fudns
    • When Rotary Wheel turns, your gift turns…into a gift six times bigger
    • ALWAYS BE ASKING. Practice elevator statements
    • Rotary at work T-Shirts
  • More Fun

    • Weekly photos uploaded to Facebook
    • Monthly R.O.A.M. for Ideas — Rotarians on a Mission – min 3 on a community project.
    • Quarterly Assembly with Awards, Shout-Out for Paul Harris Progress
    • Reduce meeting attendance to minimum 2 per month if you also ROAM every month
    • Don’t Drop the Ball – make a promise, keep a promise, and the rights of RINOS
