Joining Rotary

Interested in joining Winchester Rotary Club?  
The Winchester Rotary introduced the potential of Rotary to new people who want to make a difference in their community.  However, for many, the traditional service club model of required weekly meetings just doesn't fit into the busy lives we all live today. So Winchester Rotary created two new membership levels.
A Service Membership has fewer meeting requirements, lower membership fees, and evening meeting options.
A Corporate Membership is very similar to our traditional membership option. The principal corporate member gets all of the benefits included with a traditional membership, along with the flexibility to send a designee/associate to meetings that he/she cannot attend each month.  Corporate members may also bring associates to help at Rotary service projects.  We encourage all principal corporate members to attend at least one monthly meeting.

D.E.and I Committee members needed!!

As most of you know, our new International Rotary President, Jennifer Jones, has committed to building a Rotary world "where people unite and take action to create lasting change." In support of this goal, Rotary Clubs are reviewing their current and establishing new operating programs and procedures to value diversity and celebrate the contributions of people of all backgrounds, regardless of their age, ethnicity, race, color, abilities, religion, socioeconomic status, culture, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity. Our Rotary District 7930 has been incredibly proactive in developing programs, policies, procedures, and specific aggressive recruitment efforts to ensure that our membership represents the diverse environment we serve. Many activities are already in place and available for implementation and internal/external communication. Before doing that, we need a formal document confirming our commitment to D, E, and I and identifying the necessary actions and activities for its success.
So, I am reaching out to you, our members, and asking for volunteers who want to work with me and others to implement a competitive D.E and I policy program. I am available to discuss this with individual members or small groups if you are interested in serving on this committee. I may be reached at: walsh424@verizon.net. Please include a contact number or address where I may call you. 
Thank you! Exciting times are ahead!  
Marnee Walsh, Chair, D.E.and I.

Remembering Al Hovannesian

For most in the room today the name  Albert "Al" Hovannesian has no significance. If you were told he was a Past President of this club you could research the club site, find the list of past presidents and find the name Hovannesian at number 45 out of 90 and that's about all the information available. I would like to give you a little insight into who Al was besides a name on a list....
