January 2018 Newsletter

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and a Great New Year. The clubs in our Dis-trict have had a great start for the first half of Rotary year 2017-18. Membership is growing, and we have two new clubs starting to form. Let’s keep up the great work and finish the year strong!

Now that we are in 2018, for the current presidents, you have only 6 months to go in your year. (Ok quit cheering!) But with that said, you only have 6 months to ac-complish the goals that you set for your presidential year. So now is the time to re-view and renew your goals with your board and club members.
Also, you should have elected your new president elect and board members for the Rotary year 2018-19. Make sure you have entered their information into DACdb and www.rotary.org. If you have any ques-tions, let your AGs know and they will be happy to help you.

If you are planning on achieving the Presi-dential Citation (and you should!), now is a good time to review which items you have completed, ensure you are on track to ac-complish the remaining requirements, and update your progress in Rotary Club Central on www.rotary.org.

District 6760 is partnering with the TN En-vironmental Council in RI President Ian Riseley’s Tree Planting Challenge. For clubs that have not yet participated, the Council’s next tree planting will be on Feb-ruary 24th. Click on this Registration Link to order trees and choose a pickup location that works best for you. Clubs may order more than 5 bundles if needed. If you need more than 20 bundles (5 per bundle), email cynthia@tectn.org. The recommended donation is $1.00 per seed-ling to help the Council be able to continue to offer these seedlings for future events.
