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.
