Summary of March 5th Meeting
 
Thanks to your generosity, we collected $46 in 'Happy Bucks' and 'Dollars for the Foundation.' All these contributions benefit the Rotary International Foundation. 
 
Our guest speaker at last week's breakfast meeting was Leslie Fleuranges. Leslie is Comfort-in-Chief at Tender Loving Care Pet Nursing Hotel, a highly personal, premium daycare and boarding facility for pets with special needs. 
President's Message

It's hard to believe that March is here and spring is just around the corner! Thanks to everyone and Becky Johnston's excellent organization skills, we have had wonderful speakers at our weekly meetings.  I do want to let you know that on March 19th, we will have a very special guest. United States Representative, Sharice Davids, will be speaking at our meeting on that day. Please take this opportunity to invite guests and especially those who may be interested in Rotary.  We have secured a larger room for that day but will need to have a headcount by Monday 3/16 to make sure we have enough food.  
   A couple of other business items.  In the next couple of weeks, we need to schedule our service project to take the place of our April 30th meeting.  I am planning on a board meeting for Thursday 3/12.  The time of this meeting will be announced next week.

ROTARY MINUTE
 
 
February 24, 2020

When Paul Harris organized his first group of men to meet weekly, he did not just approach businessmen. He wanted a cross-section of business and professional people who would represent various population groups in Chicago.  After many years, Rotarians who joined would declare that they represented a specific vocation or classification of jobs.  

When we joined Rotary, most of us were assigned a classification (or a job title).  That brings people representing as many businesses or professions to our team. Past members have included a mayor, a city manager, a county administrator, doctors, police and dozens of other businesses and professions.

Rotary is looking for community leaders, businessmen/women, and professionals who want to serve their community and help those in need. As the Johnson County Rotary, we could have representatives of any county departments and service.  We should also have representatives of jobs found in our neighborhoods and business parks.  

When looking for prospects, think of business people you use?  With whom do you like to work?   Who has an optimistic spirit?   Who lives a life of service?  We need people you like and trust.   That’s how we grow the club.

As we work on membership, let’s see if we can build this team.  Johnson County is a vital, growing and creative.    And so are we!
