Next Meeting & Other Stories
3-25-19 Building a Community Based Rotaract Club
Surprise!  Surprise!  We await the next meeting to discover our speaker's name, but we  know the topic: Building a Community Based Rotaract Club.  Come early for socializing, dinner shortly after 6 pm, speaker revealed sometime before 7 pm. 
PDG Phil Lustig arranged for the speaker and provided the hint that our speaker was Past District 6990 Governor and has experience developing a Community Based Rotaract Club.  This could be the impetus that moves us forward on an exciting project!
3-18-19 Chuck Sawicki Membership Development
During our meeting Monday March 18, 2019 we expected Chuck Sawicki to provide some insights on mentoring and membership development.  With 54 years of Rotary experience, Chuck did just what we expected.  He shared several stories about effective techniques used by the 14 different Rotary clubs in which he belonged.
While he was talking he distributed copies of his book, "On Mentoring" and asked us to look at selected pages in the book that highlighted the stories he was telling us.  He also pointed to a feedback section in the book that validated some of his claims about club growth as well as other community organization growth that resulted from the mentoring activity he prescribed.  A great presentation!
Chuck had a 46 year career in sales, marketing, & general management. He received a BA in Economics from Notre Dame & an MBA from Washington University in St. Louis. He served as a US Army officer through ROTC as a Distinguished Military Graduate. While with 5 organizations, he was president of 3 companies in business information, M&A information, & wholesale & retail investment products & services.  
Before moving to Lancaster in 2014 from Charlotte, NC, he served over 7 years as a SCORE Mentor and continues. He won each SCORE Chapter’s outstanding mentor award. He has been a Rotarian for over 53 years and has been a volunteer Ambassador for Road Scholar, the largest non-profit educational travel company. Chuck has traveled to all 50 states & 100 countries. He won the AFP Volunteer Fund Raiser Award while serving on non-profit boards & donor development committees.
Rotary Guests 3-18-2019
During our meeting March 18, 2019, Steve Laine introduced his guests: Denise Falabella, Susan Porro, and Joyce Tindell.  Denise has become a frequent guest, so she invited a couple of friends to join as well.  Susan and Joyce were familiar to some of us who are also members of Advent Lutheran Church.  Sorry we somehow missed getting Susan's picture (just clipped her goldy loks in Brian's pic), you must return for a picture now, Susan!  Great to have you visiting us Denise, Susan, and Joyce.  We hope we'll see you again visiting our club.
 We also enjoyed seeing our soon to be new member Brian Stenberg.  Great to see you again Brian.  We need to schedule the formalities and say "welcome aboard!"
Finally, but not least, we enjoyed seeing Joseph Riopel again; especially because he delivered the city proclamation of Happiness Day for all the Rotary clubs of Boca Raton.  Joseph read the proclamation and gave it to President Ana Londono.
