Each One Bring One

Virtual Meeting on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 @ 12: 15 pm – 1:15 pm

Ask every Rotarian in your Club and area to consider which of their friends, neighbors, or work colleagues would be a good fit for club membership.

Why? Because District 5160’s Fall Membership drive is scheduled for the week October 18th through October 22nd.

Consistent with RI President Shekhar Mehta’s message of “Each-One-Bring-One” we are encouraging every Rotarian in our District to bring a guest to their meeting that week in an effort to promote and increase membership.

Our virtual program on Wednesday, October 20, 2021 at 12:15 pm will feature Joel Sjostrom, President and CEO of the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano, Eve Birge, Executive Director of White Pony Express and Project Second Chance. Our program will feature how we partner with different agencies in the community to assist those in need. We hope to inspire and engage our members and guests and show what we can do as an international organization. Again, the message is simply that each member brings a guest to their club meeting that week.

District 5160 is offering prizes to the clubs that most actively and successfully participate. We also will recognize all Rotarians who participate and who bring a guest to their meetings during membership drive week.

Also, the District membership committee is excited to announce the District membership photo contest, which will have its own prizes for the clubs that participate including up to $1,200 in cash prizes and 6000 in PHF total points.

Rotary Superheroes!

40 Year Anniversary Celebration!

We have all grown up with fictional superheroes such as Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, etc.  Real superheroes can be hard to find. But look no further!  Your local Rotary Club is the easiest place to find modern day superheroes and you can be one too.

The difference is no secret identity or lone wolf mentality.  There are over 1.2 million Rotary members around the world in over 200 countries.  Rotary International has formed a global network of professional leaders, all volunteering their time and talents to serve their communities and the world. It is much easier to make a difference together than alone.

You don’t need a cape or a secret identity to be a modern day superhero but it sure would be fun and now is your opportunity. Calling all Superheroes! Rotarians, family and guests are invited.

The Rotary Club of Concord Diablo is proud and excited to celebrate our 40th Anniversary and we invite you to celebrate with us.
