Meeting Recap


      Greetings Rotarians! Today we held our monthly charity committee meetings.  Committees are encouraged to determine how to spend their money sooner, rather than later and to get their requests in to Kristin Winer at least two weeks before the end of the Rotary year (June 30th).

2014 Essex Rotary Golf Tournament
            Although it looks and feels like January, spring is technically here which means it is time to start gearing up for the 2014 Essex Rotary Golf Tournament!  This year’s event will be held at the Links at Lang Farm on Wednesday, June 11th.  This is our Club’s biggest fundraiser, so it is important that all Rotarians participate and help out with this event.  A volunteer sheet is being passed around.  We ask that each Rotarian who is not playing in the tournament please volunteer for a slot at the event.  It is also important that members solicit sponsors for the tournament.  Each Rotarian is responsible for bringing in at least one sponsor.  The Golf Committee will be distributing sponsorship brochures in another week or so for you all to use when soliciting sponsors.
District 7850 Rotary Leadership Institute
            The District Rotary Leadership Institute is offering leadership courses for anyone who is interested.  The next courses are scheduled for Saturday, April 12, 2014 at the Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, New Hampshire.  This is a great way to learn about the many functions of Rotary, so newer members are strongly encouraged to attend.  For registration information, please visit
District 7850 District Conference
            Just as a reminder, the District 7850 Conference is being held in Burlington this year from April 25th through April 27th.  If you are interested in attending any of the scheduled meals at this event, please register at:
