Rotary Club of Emmett’s Membership Opportunities Expanding
The Emmett Rotary Club is excited to announce that starting on September 17, 2015, and on the 3rd Thursday of each month thereafter, the lunch meeting will move to the evening. Those wanting dinner will gather together at 6:30 pm at Idaho Pizza; the meeting will begin at 7:00 PM. 
The Club has been looking for ways to accommodate those in our community who work outside of Emmett, or are otherwise unable to attend the hourly noon meeting, yet want to be involved in service opportunities locally and further abroad.  The best part of this evening gathering will be the focus.  Rather than the usual meeting and program or projects discussion, the focus will be on weekly community service projects.  All attending will work together or in teams to complete a specific service project the same evening.  Imagine the impact we’ll make!
If you have ever thought about becoming a Rotarian but weren’t able to attend the weekly luncheon meetings, this is your chance to come see what we are all about.  We come from all walks of life and believe strongly in our motto, “Service Above Self”.  Emmett Rotary supports our community with events such as the Youth Benefit Dinner and Auction, the annual rose sale (which benefits the Senior Center), working at the Community Garden, cooking Friendship Coalition meals, serving at the Relay for Life Survivor’s Dinner, working the parking for Cherry Festival, sponsoring a booth for the EHS Cheer Team at the Gem/Boise County Fair, participating in Rake Up Emmett in the fall, roadside clean-up, and the list goes on. As for international efforts and participation, we are hosting an exchange student from Austria this year and, in conjunction with KT’s Lanes, hosting the annual Pins 4 Polio event in the fall with the majority of the funds raised going to efforts to eradicate polio.  Each calendar year brings new avenues to serve our community.
Consider this your invitation to come see what Rotary is all about!  Questions?  Contact Ammon Andelin at Key Bank or Kent Adams at Edward Jones’ office.
