District Governor Gary Bradham August Message

Rotary: Making a Difference is truly a message of our times.  The month of July has been an exciting time in my Rotary story.  Having visited, at this point, twenty-five clubs in our district, I have had the pleasure of meeting so many unique Rotarians, all making a difference.

District 7770 has historically been one of the leaders in giving to The Rotary Foundation.  It has been amazing to hear about what clubs are doing with the funds returned to them from The Rotary Foundation giving from prior years.   Each club brings solutions to their specific community needs.  Each Rotarian enthusiastically contributes to improving the lives of so many while essentially writing his or her own Rotary story.   The clubs have, through their diverse ways, addressed a variety of community needs.  Some of the projects include Happy Feet, Back Pack Buddies, Homeless Shelters, Anti-bullying, and a plethora of Literacy Projects.  Rotarians are truly People of Action providing exceptional community service through impactful actions and meaningful service.  The current giving to the Foundation is what paves the way for community service projects in the future. Not only does the Foundation provide for community needs, but the current giving continues to provide future Global Grants for desperately needed and sustainable projects world-wide. On September 8th at the Club Foundation, Membership, and Public Image Fall Training Seminar, the District Rotary Foundation Chair, PDG Sandee Brooks, will offer an opportunity for training in District Foundation Programs, how to obtain Global Grants, and how to increase donor giving.  It is vital that we continue to support and give to The Rotary Foundation.

Since August is Membership and New Club Development Month, clubs should use their Rotary Stories to showcase “What is Rotary?” and “Who is Rotary?” to perspective members.  All it may take to attract new members is simply… an invitation and then showcasing your community service projects.  These projects may fulfill a sense of purpose to prospective members who may be looking for ways to make a difference.  In August, the District Membership Chair, Johnny Moore, will host a Membership Summit with the Assistant Governors and Membership Advocates to develop best practices and intentional strategies to grow membership throughout the district. With these tools, at the Fall Membership Training Seminar on September 8th, Club Membership Chairs will have the opportunity to select what might work best for their specific clubs.  Member recruitment is an essential internal priority as we strengthen and grow our clubs.

By sharing our member’s stories, project involvement, and fun through fellowship, clubs will increase public and community awareness.  Public awareness provides the mechanism to attract diverse professionals of all ages, and service-above-self minded people. At the Club Leadership Fall Training Seminars on September 8th, the District Public Image Chair, Mary Gasque will provide examples and successful avenues to enhance the Public Image Program.  Our Rotary stories are important for others to know “What is Rotary?” and how they can “plug in” to our organization.  Club leaders are encouraged to attend the Fall Training Seminars.  I am confident that District 7770 will make a difference in 2017-18. Gear Up and Get Excited About Rotary!

Gary C. Bradham

District Governor, 2017-18

Ok this might be considered a selfish plug, sorry.

The Summerville Evening Rotary Club has just created the a “charitable contribution foundation” within the club and made it as a 501C3 non-profit organization. I know many clubs around the district have formed 501C3 organizations within their clubs for various projects.

BUT did you know Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible Amazon Smile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice? There is no increase in price for the shopper. To register your 501C3 organization with Amazon is very easy by sending in your official IRS exempt letter and a voided out check where you want the funds to be sent. Support your charitable organization by starting your shopping at smile.amazon.com

Until you get your organization registered with Amazon Smile, please consider selecting the Rotary Club of Summerville Evening Charitable Foundation Inc. as your choice on Smile.Amazon.com.
