Portsmouth Rotary Emphasis for July
Our club emphasis for the month of July will be a continued emphasis on our top 3 priorities:

: A Club Fundraiser with a goal for raising $5,000.00 for club expenses.  Preliminary plans are for a raffle with exciting prizes for the winners and tickets to be $10.00 each.  Begin making a list now of potential “customers" for this first club fundraiser.

: Recruitment of the remaining members to reach our goal of 25 members so we can be chartered and become an official club in Rotary. It looks like we will gain 2 or 3 new members this month but we are still short. Let's continue to give our Membership Committee chair, Rotarian Hans, lists of prospective members.

: Development of our first service project. It looks like a highway beautification program will be where we start.  The Service Projects committee is looking for input on their preliminary plan.

Club members, please give your input through the month of July for any of the priorities listed above so we can "Get Going" and fulfill these priorities as soon as possible.
