Ingrid's Corner:
Greetings, Dublin AM Rotarians
Joy can also be defined as Rotary happy
We have a speaker coming on Friday, February 23 that signs her emails “Rotary Happy”. I can’t wait for the club to meet Jenny Stotts and hear her speak at our meeting. Her infectious energy reflects all the same goodness I see in our club.
We will be sending out a Member Survey soon; we want to know what makes you happy in Rotary.
We have just completed the February board meeting, and with the last candidate in, we will be welcoming three new members this month! Each brings a set of talents that will add to the combined talent we enjoy. Welcome Ed, Sean and Greg!
We will be together soon on Safari Golf Course for the Polar Bear Golf Open!  I’m glad we are trying a later date: we will see how the weather cooperates but it is called the Polar Bear Golf outing  for a reason. Pete Cushnie, Sinan Yaykin and their great committee are working hard to ensure that this will again be an awesome event.

2/16 - Service Project:  Making Kits for Victims of Human Trafficking - Please come to help! - we'll be assembling roughly 100 bags of toiletry items for victims of human trafficking which will then be distributed by the Salvation Army.  Our club (thanks to Claudia Trusty!) has purchased all the supplies needed for this project, so no donations will be needed.  All we need is your participation to help assemble these bags and move them into a waiting vehicle at the end of the meeting.

Ingrid Fields & Jim Warburton went to observe the 2nd & 7 Reading Event on Thursday, 2/8 at Chapman Elementary in Dublin.  Thanks to Julie Rinaldi for leading the Literacy Committee and making this possible for the kids and Dublin AM Rotary.
If you would like to observe and participate in the 2nd & 7 Reading events in Dublin on February 15, contact Julie Rinaldi or Steve Schmitt.
Steve Burigana kicked off the 2024 scholarship project - Dublin AM Rotary will be making awards to Dublin Schools Seniors totaling $9000. Contact Steve if you would like to help with this effort.
Meals on Wheels:
A knock at the door might not seem like a big deal to many of us. But, to a home-bound senior, it could signal the arrival of the only person they might see all day or all week long. It brings hope. It brings health. It brings the nutrition and care that will completely make their day. A knock from Meals on Wheels can even save lives.
We are asking for your help in delivering Meals on Wheels to seniors in the Dublin community. It only takes an hour once a week but it makes a huge difference to the senior that you are delivering much-needed food to.  Please click on the attached SignUp Genius link to see how you can help.  We need help for 12/27 and January.
Thank you!!
