President’s Corner 7.9.18

Hi everyone,

I can’t wait to see you all this Thursday for our first meeting of the Rotary year! We already have a lot of great stuff planned and your new board is excited to share it with you. Remember that guests are always welcome at our meetings, socials, and service events.

Rotaract meets at Hightide Burrito the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month. Mingling starts at 5:45 in the back room and the meeting starts at 6:30

Our next meeting will be this Thursday, July 12 at Hightide Burrito at 6:30pm. 

Community Service
Recap: July 7: Angels for Allison

We had the chance to help paint angels, and the profits from the angels go directly to the financial needs of families who are suffering with the loss of a child. It is an incredible organization and we enjoyed learning more about them. We are looking forward to helping again in the future!

Now – August 3: Stuff The Bus Drive

At our next two July meetings, we will be collecting school supplies for Stuff The Bus. Donations will benefit United Way’s Full Service Schools and Achievers For Life initiatives. There is a suggested list of supplies here.

August 18: Downtown Rotaract’s Drafts, Dogs, & Duuuval

Downtown Rotaract is hosting their annual fundraiser at Hyperion Brewing Company. Tickets are $20 each, and includes three beer tokens and food. All proceeds of this event benefit the Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Florida’s First Coast, an organization that advocates for the best interest of abused, abandoned, and neglected children of our community. Go here to purchase tickets.

Club Social
July 14-15: Hail and Farewell
Our annual Hail and Farewell will be this weekend in Jacksonville Beach. Hail and Farewell is where we start planning for our new year at our board meeting, and the rest of the time is to celebrate the great year we’ve had and have fun as a group!

The new board will meet Saturday morning and then everyone is invited to join us from there. We will have a beach day, go to dinner, and go out in Jax Beach. Please get with me (Jordan) if you plan on attending. Everyone is welcome at any point during the day/night.
