Calling All Members. Our annual spring fundraising banquet and scholarships presentation is April 25th. Click Awards Banqet above to learn more. Now is the time to plan your support – attend the event; invite your friends; be a sponsor and/or donate an auction item; and ask your favorite local businesses to do likewise. President-Elect Raquel Neumann is organizing the silent auction and asks you to let her know as soon as possible what you can offer.
Thursday Mar. 28th: Lunch Meeting. Speaker is Lisa Fikes, Executive Director of Volunteer Arlington.
Volunteer Arlington connects individuals, groups, nonprofits and businesses in an effort to promote volunteerism. It is the connection hub that links volunteers both as individuals and groups to organizations in need of support. Working in partnership with nonprofits, private businesses and government entities, Volunteer Arlington inspires civic engagement that in turn strengthens our community. Volunteer Arlington is an arm of Leadership Center for Excellence, whose mission is to enlighten, inspire, and connect leaders through community building and leadership development.
Saturday, April 6th - Litter Pickup. Join in the fun policing litter from Glebe Road. A great chance to find that one-of-a-kind gift for your upcoming anniversary with your loved one, plus you can get breakfast afterwards. See Ken Adler to enlist.
Sunday, April 14th. Blood Drive. There are lots of ways to get in on the action as we support the United Church of Christ Congregational in holding their blood drive. You can give blood (and if you want you can reserve a slot to do so). If you can’t, you can still help out with admin support for the effort. The church is on Little Falls near Old Dominion Drive. See Hugh Barton to sign up.
SERVICE ABOVE SELF
March 14th - Books for Schools
Earlier this year, club members contributed over $1,000 to buy books for our two adopted Arlington Elementary Schools. On March 14, a group of stalwart volunteers covered all the (paperback) books we had bought with contact paper and entered inscriptions in them. (Photo by D.B. Shome.)
January 21st - MLK Day of Service
On Martin Luther King Day, January 21, at Washington-Liberty High School, over 100 volunteers joined about a dozen Arlington Rotarians to produce 55 “no-sew” fleece blankets to donate to ASPIRE! After School Learning, which provides reading tutoring to at-risk students in Arlington. Thanks and congratulations to all who participated.
