What a great event we had last week for the McKinley-Massillon Luncheon.  It was so exciting to see more than 100 attendees from both the Canton and Massillon Rotary and their guests enjoying a terrific event.  A tip of the hat to VP Paul Hervey and his committees for putting on such a great event.  From the band playing in the courtyard, the decorations in the room, the food that was served, and the lineup of speakers, everything went off without a hitch.  As President i can't thank you all enough.
 
We have accomplished a number of things so far this year, but we haven't really scratched the surface and I'll be reaching out to many of you that are not yet involved in projects.  I'm looking for volunteers to chair and participate in community events we have planned for this year such as Scholarship Committee, Drug Take-Back Day, Older Adult Outreach, and Wednesday Youth Backpack Days.  If social media marketing and website development are your thing I could really use your help in this area ASAP.    
 
This week's speaker is Dawn Southard from Team NEO.  She will be speaking about Team NEO’s mission and the performance and impact that together, with their partners and business community, is leading to advance the vibrancy of our region’s and county's economy! It would be a great time to reach out to a friend, colleague, or potential future Rotarian.
 
Have a great week and I hope to see you Friday.
 
President Mark
