The Four Way Test

Is it the truth?

Is it fair to all concerned?

Will it build good will and better friendships?

Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Welcome to the 2015-16 Rotary Year

President Magic Mike Ferris here. I am super excited for this year as President of Anchorage South Rotary. I love our club and want to see it grow. The three areas of focus I have this year are Membership, Involvement, and Projects.  

Membership -
We need to continuously invite new members. The new members we have do a fantastic job of bringing energy to the club and excitement to get involved. We need to retain our current members by getting them engaged. To achieve this I am dedicating one Thursday a month to be a Social meeting. These are great tools for allow us to get to know one another. Another way is small group gatherings/firesides. We had a few of these last year and they were a lot of fun.

Involvement -
In order to grow this club we need to keep members involved and engaged. Committee Chairs need to no longer be a committee of 1. Yes it may be easier but it is not benefiting the members of the club. Part of Rotary is the Life learning experience along the way. Being a committee of 1 doesn't allow others to learn from you or feel like they are contributing to the club. So reach out and ask for help. The goal is to have each committee have a minimum of 3 people. The past chair, the present chair, and the future chair. This will allow for people to mentor each other into the role. 

Projects - 
We did a lot of projects this last year. They were fun and didn't require a lot of time. Relay for Life was a 2 hour commitment, the Chinook Long Jump we started with coffee and were done by Brunch, and then Mothers Day flowers was 2 hours of passing out flowers. We need more of these small projects, Michael Archer has Slamming Salmon where ASR will take a 2-4 hour block. Bring your project ideas to someone on the board, think about them and be specific (What, When, and How).

Again I look forward to this year.

President Magic Mike Ferris

Rotary districts mobilize to support survivors of Ecuador, Japan quakes
After a series of three earthquakes -- two in Japan and one in Ecuador -- killed hundreds of people, injured thousands, and caused billions of dollars in damage late last week, Rotary members in those regions have created disaster relief funds to help survivors. In Ecuador, the powerful 7.8-magnitude quake that struck Saturday night has killed more than 400 people, with 2,500 injured. Those figures are expected to rise. Rotary District 4400 established a service fund to raise money for relief efforts. Contact District Governor Manuel A. Nieto Jijon for information on how to donate. In Japan,...
