Incoming RI President Huang is urging all Rotarians to Light Up Rotary by participating in Rotary Days. The concept is simple: hold a fun, informal event in your community for the non-Rotary public and use it as an opportunity to introduce them to Rotary. Any club, big or small, can host a Rotary Day. Neighboring clubs can pool their resources and co-host an event. Some possibilities might include: picnic or barbecue, sporting event, family fun run, sponsor an event at a museum, community service project, to name just a few.
And follow these tips:
  • Keep it simple
  • Keep it inexpensive
  • Gear toward families
  • Highlight Rotary
  • Seek coverage by local media
  • Gather contact information for Rotary prospects
Once the new Rotary year starts July 1st, watch for some National Rotary Day events.
