Rotary Club Sunrise of Road Town secures the small club of the month award.
  Club of the Month Winners

August, 2011 - Membership and Partnership

Large Club Winner                Rotary Club of Grand Cayman

Small Club Winner                Rotary Club Sunrise of Road Town

The submissions of the two winning clubs are attached to this notice. Highlights of the activities of other clubs are as follows:

RC Montego Bay East assigns all members a “duty” at each meeting so everyone feels involved. They also have “compulsory fellowship” after their evening meeting (No doubt with plenty of Appletons!)

RC Nassau created a sign-up sheet for guests and guest speakers requesting an e-mail address, then followed up by making contact with them.

RC Negril claims “Partnership is a requirement not an option” for their club to survive, so they partner with other community groups to continue with their service projects, giving them greater reach in their community.

RC Road Town & RC Grand Cayman both worked with Rotaract to provide incentives and reasons to join Rotary.

RC Sunrise of Road Town created “Training in a Hat” (pick a Rotary question from the hat and if you fail to answer you must bring a guest of an unfilled classification for the next three weeks) and “Did you Know” – a series of 30-second radio spots giving local and international   information about Rotary gleaned from RI and District websites.

RC Sint Maartenpartnered with the local Alzheimer’s Foundation in an ambitious awareness and fundraising effort.

RC St. Andrew North used Skype to invite high-level speakers (RI Director John Smarge and Zone Coordinator Marcy Ullom). They also had a significant celebration to honour members of the clubs who had sponsored other members.

St. Croix and St. Croix Harborside are both small clubs, so every month they have a joint meeting of the two clubs so expanding the expertise of the members, enlivening the members and sharing PR.

St. Martin Sunrise organized “The Big Sunrise Rotary Open House” inviting members of professional organizations and toastmasters. The event will be held monthly.

Other Ideas

Several clubs created brochures of information about the club, their activities and their expectations of membership for distribution to guest speakers, guests, potential members and any other interested parties.

Some clubs also conducted surveys or held assemblies for their members to assess how they would like their club to progress.

Many clubs created fellowship and recruited members through hands-on community projects.

Intra-Club fellowships were held in several areas of the district.

We are STILL the best Rotary District!!! Congratulations Everyone!
