Your help is needed! Redlands Festival of Arts will take place again this year on Saturday and Sunday, May 28th
and 29th from 9:00am – 5:00pm. Volunteers are needed in a variety of areas: passing out programs, assisting the
artists tear-down of booths on Sunday afternoon, assistance with the children’s art activities on Sunday. Shifts are approximately three hours. Please contact your editor, LYNDA SCHAUF at 909 499-8634. Many Rotarians are working hard on this event so please share your time as well as plan to attend this great event! You will be amazed at the quality of art!
Who is your favorite Rotarian “Dancing With the Stars” candidate? You have three choices for which you may
vote or you can vote for all! Votes are $1.00 per vote and the proceeds benefit the Redlands Symphony. Ask any one of these three Rotarians for an envelope to vote: LYNN WHITMER, AJ BEECHKO, LYNDA SCHAUF. Each are putting great effort into dancing and selecting costumes to entertain and amaze you! Please vote! The Symphony Gala will be held at the Or ton Center on June 4, 2016!
Remember Rotarians that the 2nd Annual Touch-A-Truck is happening June 11th from 9 am to 2 pm at the Ted Runner Stadium parking lot. More fun than a barrel of Chihuahuas! We still need volunteers to help at any time between 7 and 3 for set-up, clean up, and everything in between which is basically being a good steward for the Four Way Test and Rotary. Please speak with JANET GREENFIELD or JOE HORZEN to see where you can fit in. Also, we are still in need of sponsorships of any kind, from a nice raffle prize at $20 or more to cash in any amount. Please see JIM NOLIN to help in this way. For immediate gratification, there will be a meeting about TATE right after THIS meeting today!
In-coming Rotary President, JAN HUDSON and her Past-President husband, MARVIN HUDSON are off to the International Rotary Convention in Seoul, Korea on May 27th! They are sure to have a great experience as Rotarians from all over the world come together to share projects and club activities. They are certain to return with some great ideas for her presidential year!
