Club Service includes any of the offices and roles that help our club function and thrive. Some examples of Club Service at WWR and the members who fill those roles are as follows:
Mentoring - experienced Rotarians mentor new members to help them learn the ways of Rotary and to introduce them to other members.
Members support the club by planning and participating in club projects and conducting regular business. Board members – officers, committee chairs, and at large – meet once a month to review finances; accept new members and resignations; approve plans for social events, fundraising activities, and service projects. Individual members may plan and implement these with the efforts of all in the club.
The weekly newsletter is an excellent example of club service. Currently the club secretary reports on the meeting speaker’s talk, compiles news and photographs, adds reminders from our District secretary and club president, and produces an attractive and informative bulletin that is emailed to all members and printed for distribution at the weekly meeting. This newsletter is useful in membership recruitment and retention.
Our Town Crier sends a reminder email each week to inform members about the meeting’s speaker or other program.
Committee chairs for membership and other areas of service provide leadership in these areas. The person who developed the major project for the year and obtained district funding for it oversees the club’s role and accounts for the expenses.
Greeters - each week one club member and one board member serve as greeters for our weekly luncheon meeting. This involves getting to the meeting a few minutes earlier, and saying "Hello" to guests and members as they enter.
