Hi folks, hope you're having a great week!
As I mentioned last week, I am asking all Canton Rotarians to volunteer a little of your time (or maybe a lot, if you're up for it!) to help our Club be successful this year and to continue into the future. Below is a short list of committees that I would ask you to take a look at, and to pick at least one committee on which you'd like to help. With no administrative assistant or office any longer, there's a fair amount of work that needs to be done to allow our club to operate smoothly. Plus, we are still trying to build back up from the pandemic's negative influences, including stabilizing our membership rolls, raising funds to run our club, as well as to continue our support of both our local and international communities, plus making sure we are able to help the youth in our Canton community.
Please take a look here and let me know what you might like to help with. It doesn't have to be a lot of time, maybe an hour or two per week, unless there's something that really grabs you and you feel compelled to grab the bull by the horns! My email is rickt@kozmosgrille.com and cell is 330-575-2870.
