Rotary needs members to continue
This year, 2015 the Rotary Club of the Boundary celebrates 80 years of serving the community and the world. Since its existence it has provided many, many thousands of dollars of support for various causes within the community, in both Canada & USA. This support is now in perilous jeopardy due to serious decline in membership. This decline has reached the point that we must build our membership back. The survival of the club in the area all depends on the support from the community in recruiting members. Letters will be going out to organizations for which we have given support in one form or another in the past, to support us by naming a member of their organization to serve in our club. The monthly used book sales become vulnerable, as this is operated strictly by club volunteers and friends. Scholarships and support of the schools, and many other local ventures cannot be maintained by the few remaining members on our roster, therefore, it is imperative at this time that the community now step forward and support us, if we are to remain active in the area. Our aim is to continue with business as usual, but we are not sure that this is realistic. Being a Rotarian is rewarding and enjoyable. Every member of the club brings new ideas to the table and can propose new endeavours. It is a worthwhile way to support the community and enjoy service. Check us out at www.boundaryrotaryclun.org, or at Rotary Boundary on Facebook, speak to any Rotarian or phone 819 876 5103 and leave a message.
