Program - Dave Hellmich.  Dave introduced Le Hartman, facilitator for the SVCC Community Leadership Program and Andrew Katchberg, one of the class participants.
The program is intended to build leadership skills, broaden knowledge of local region and unlock potential as an effective leader in our community. The program runs August through May.   Le spoke to us about her role as facilitator and her skills at managing the program and speakers.  Andrew is a participant and shared about how helpful the program is to him in building his skills as a leader and learning about the community.  Thanks for a great program.
Special Thank You
Thanks to John Gvozdjak and his family for the excellent job planning and hosting the Student Excellence event.   We thank all the Rotarians who participated and attended, 23 of our club members in all.  This event should make us all proud to be a member of the Sterling Noon Rotary.

Ongoing Reminders

1.  Please remember the Four-way Test when directing comments and questions to speakers and other members. a) Is it the truth? b) Is it fair to all concerned? c) Will it build good will and better friendships? d) Will it be beneficial to all concerned?
2.  Once you have your guest speaker lined up for the meeting program, please email Carolyn Spencer at so that it can be included in the eBulletin.  
3.  Please park at the YWCA, not in a Sterling Federal Bank lot/spaces.
4.  Think of who you can invite to a meeting as a potential new member.
5.  If you have to leave early from the meeting, as a courtesy, please apologize in advance to the speaker.
6.  Please sit closer to the front of the room than to the back.  And try to sit with the new members whenever you can....get to know them....make them feel welcome.
7.  Whenever you host a student guest, as you are chatting with him/her over lunch, please tell them about our club.  Tell them what to expect during the meeting;  the opening, fun & frolic, boots & shoes, etc.   Tell him/her about local and international service projects that Rotary is involved with.   Make them feel welcome.
