Hello fellow Rotarians,
Happy New Year!!!
Ah, the dawn of a new year. It is a time to ring out the old and celebrate what unknowns are in front of us. It is also a time to not lose the lessons of the past that will make you better in the future. My past year has been full of ups and downs, challenges and headaches, failed attempts and fulfilling dreams. Thank you for being a part of my 2018. I’m looking forward to the road of 2019.
The New Year may be here, but it’s half time for me! It has been a quick six months and I know the next six will be even faster. I cannot wait to experience it all.
We are now selling tickets for the Elimination Reverse Raffle! Let’s get this event SOLD OUT ASAP!! Last year we had to sell 11 tickets on the last day. Let’s not do that again. Reminder…..EVERY Nile’s Rotarian MUST sell or buy at least ONE ticket!! No excuses. It’s easy! Just buy or sell one ticket. I know you can do that! We have 335 tickets to sell. If everyone buys\sells one ticket, we only have 220 left. So….some additional help will be needed to sell the rest. Ask family and co-workers. This fundraiser helps support MANY worthy nonprofits in the area, plus it helps with RYLA and Rotary Interact Scholarships! Help President-Elect Bruce out and make this event a sellout!!
There is a link to the Reverse Raffle webpage from our nilesrotary.org website. You can download a copy of the flyer/ticket form as well as get details about the event. As auction items are donated, there will be links to lists of those items as well, so you can plan ahead. And of course ticket order forms are available in great supplies at our club meetings; please pick up lots of copies to hand out to your friends, family, colleagues, fellow organization board members, etc.
Keep your eyes looking out the big window. The world is a beautiful place – experience it. Don’t live it through a little window of a handheld device.
