The 2020-2021 Rotary International year is off to a great start! President Rashida and the Passion in Action Team kicked off the year in true Cranberry Style; wearing our signature pink polo!
Club Service Director Joeleita broke the ice by asking members to randomly describe an item in story form. Honorable mentions must be made for AD Rachel’s mayonnaise and CS Charida bear mask stories. This was followed by an introduction of the Board of Directors and Support Members for the 2020/2021 year! President Rashida gave an overview of our club theme for the year Passion in Action which has the following four main elements:
- Refocusing what International Service means to our club
- Improving the health and wellness of our members
- Encourage Collaboration
- Spotlight Members’ Personal Passion Projects
Committee Directors and Chairs shared their tentative plans which were in line with the overall themes of the club, District and Rotary International, followed by a Q&A session.
This year we are pleased to continue having representation on the Rotary District 7030 Rotaract Committee and those members were spotlighted during the any other business segment of the meeting. Further, our secret Sarge, Director of Finance & Fundraising Shakira, waived all fines for the night. Bless her soul.
With the island slowly reopening, it was announced that committee meetings can be held in person as the Board finds an temporary home that can facilitate our growing membership while observing adequate social distancing.
A special thank you goes to all the guests and visitors who attended our Kick Off Meeting. Especially the Rotarians from our Sponsor Club; President Fiona Hinds, PDG David Edwards, YSD Stanley MacDonald and Rotaract Chair Carlos Depeiza.
Our next scheduled meeting will be on Saturday 18th July 2020, Triple C: Cranberry Crash Course, which begins at 10:00AM. See you there!
