, and I met this morning to do a lessonslearned (Intel
s name), evaluation, debriefing regarding theValley Flavors Signature Event.
We had several great ideas,and I want to have all reports, whether it be decorations,publicity, raffle prizes, restaurant and wine gathering, logistics,and all that went into the organizing and planning of this even,get put into a binder so we can have the information readily atour fingertips for the future.

restaurants, more invitees? Then we have tothink about a bigger place; display tables ofthe community work that our event supportson display in the lobby; feedback from ourrestaurants as to how successful this eventwas for them.
These are just some of theideas.

Also, start checking out differentrestaurants in the area and over the year getto know them so that when the planning forthe event rolls around next year, you can askthem to participate without it being a

Here are somereasons to attend: Campbell Rotary will bepaying for your dinner ($$$$); we can seewhat other clubs in our area are doingregarding, communication (
Megan Hill
hasagreed to put us on Facebook so get herinformation that can go onto our site);community projects and internationalprojects that are taking place in our District;see the different booths, Interact, all theavenues of service, YMCA/Rotarycollaboration; partnership opportunities thatour club might consider.
Phewwww! Oneimportant thing is the Youth ProtectionCertification and LiveScan – our club isgoing to be starting a new adventure ofhaving our own Interact Club and any timewe are having anything to do with youth, theclub members have to have taken andreceived the Certification as well as beingfingerprinted for the same.
Rather than runaround to police departments or privatecompanies who do fingerprinting, we caneasily get it done at the conference ($25paid for by you).
This is mandatory for allnew Red Badgers, not to mention to olderblue badgers who have not yet done so.
You know me, I want to make sure that weare in compliance with the rules andregulations. I will be passing around thesheet for you to sign up at our meeting.
The final date for Grant applications iscoming soon, October 31.
