This month’s Rotary E-Club E-wareness campaign presents information about blood donation.  Throughout the month our Club will provide resources gathered by our Club Members.  The information will be helpful to you and to the people you care about.  See the campaign by clicking here.









January is designated Rotary Awareness Month by Rotary International, which loves its themes.  But Rotary awareness is more than putting the eye-popping blue/gold Rotary Gear on things…only our Club can tell our Club’s story, of what we do, of how we help, and of how others can get involved.

This week’s program is participatory…as with Rotary Awareness, this week’s program is us.  What do you do to raise awareness of our Rotary team with your friends, your colleagues, your customers, your family?  What can we do, together and as individuals, to tell people what we do and give them the opportunity that someone gave each of us: to serve others, feel good about it, and have fun doing it?

Post in the comments–what you have been doing, and any ideas you have about what you can do…someone else might just steal a great idea, and that’s a good thing.  If you think of something later, comment again–it’s legal to comment more than once!

  1. Well I enjoy bringing my wife and kids to our food drives and other events. It’s important to me to show my children the joy of helping others.
    At work I tell my staff and customers about the different things we do and how they can participate in helping through donation for Polio or currently to donate blood.

  2. The projects are the reason I have stayed invved in Rotary for a quarter of a century, long after leaving Evanston

  3. The projects are the reason I have stayed involved in Rotary for a quarter of a century, long after leaving Evanston

  4. I stay true to myself wherever I am and whatever I do. This way, when I talk about Rotary, people know that Rotary is a good thing and that they also want to be associate with. Does it make sense?

  5. Our club (in New Zealand) has recently organised new Rotary signage for or venue, indicating it is our meeting place and the time of the meeting, and as well encourage members to not only wear the Rotary badge but also put a Rotary logo (transfer) on their vehicles.
