Club Happenings

1.  Club Meeting Updates

This past Thursday, we had a Club Assembly focused on what we're doing well and what we can do to improve.  The suggestions from the members were excellent ones, and we will be acting on their recommendations in the coming weeks.  Our members hold the Club Leadership accountable, and these recommendations reflect a high level of commitment to improvement and excellence that we will gladly take on!
Our awesome Rotarian of the Day was Mike McCaffrey and his equally awesome special friend, Yukon!
And we were serenated by the Rotary Wranglers (check out the YouTube video link below to hear them in action)!  Speaking of which, our YouTube Channel is now active, so please search for and subscribe to the new "Rotary Del Sol" YouTube Channel as we will be uploading much more content over the coming months!
This Thursday, we'll have a follow-up Club Assembly led by our outstanding Club Membership Committee Chair, Jeff Faulwell.  It will focus on key membership initiatives, both on the recruitment and the retention/engagement sides.

2.  Governors Charity Ball Update

President Jeff met with Rotary Club of Albuquerque President Mark Goodman late last week, and they are filling out their Committee rosters and working on their action items.  The partnership is working well, and we are focused on making sure that the Committees stay collaborative between our two Clubs and don't get into silos.  More to come later this week or next week on specifically where we are and what we will need to focus on in the first quarter of 2023.

3. Upcoming Birthdays and other dates to celebrate, support each other, etc.

December Birthdays!

Mitch Selking - December 29th

Bruce Shaffer - December 31st

A reminder that Robert Brown will be reaching out to you if your birthday is not listed on our website.  If you have any important reasons to celebrate other than birthdays (anniversaries, birth of a child or grandchild, etc.) or reasons for your fellow Club members to support you, pray for you, help you (e.g., loss of a loved one), please let President Jeff know and he will make sure that the Club is notified and that we can respond accordingly.  We are all in this together!

4. Don Chalmers Memorial Grant

Updated information for next year's grants is available on our Club website home page.  Please consider whom you would nominate so we can have ample candidates when we start our vetting process.

Rotary Happenings

December is Disease Prevention and Treatment Month, a perfect time to reinforce our efforts to eradicate polio (including by donating to the PolioPlus Fund this coming Thursday during our Club Meeting).
