Participate in a local or international service project related to at least one of Rotarys areas of focus. Do one or both of the following: – Hold at least one fellowship or service activity that involves all club members and their families – Partner with a non-Rotary organization on a service project in your community

13 Club Service Strengthens fellowship and ensures effective functioning of the club. In the past, the club has done sporadic social events, but nothing consistent Susan Bernard has agreed to focus on Club Service Questions for the group – How often do we want social events? Once a month? Once a quarter?

14 Vocational Service Encourages Rotarians to serve others through their vocations and to practice high ethical standards. (using your vocational expertise to serve others or exemplifying the Four Way Test in the workplace) To my knowledge, the Allen Rotary has not done anything in particular to emphasize Vocational Service

15 Vocational Service Options given by the Presidential Citation: Start a career counseling or vocational training program and invite non-Rotarian participants from the community to attend Organize a discussion or workshop on maintaining high ethical standards in the workplace and invite local non-Rotarian business leaders to attend Sponsor a career day in which club members bring young people to their places of business to inform them about career opportunities

16 Community Service Covers the projects and activities the club undertakes to improve life in its community. We are currently participating in Coats for Boyd, honoring the Teacher of the Week, conducting the Christmas Parade, Community Grants as well as some one-time projects with Cornerstone Ranch. Our plans to conduct Community Service include: – Continuing Teacher of the Week, Coats for Boyd, Christmas Parade and Community Grants – Helping with My Possibilities – Plus at least two others

17 International Service Encompasses actions taken to expand Rotarys humanitarian reach around the globe and to promote world understanding and peace. We currently support Send Hope and Kids Against Hunger We will continue to support Send Hope and Kids Against Hunger Global Grants

18 Youth Service (formerly New Generations Service) Recognizes the positive change implemented by youth and young adults through leadership development activities as RYLA, Rotaract and Interact, service projects, and creating international understanding with Rotary Youth Exchange. We are currently chartered for a Cub Scout pack based out of Evans and Kerr Elementary. We also sponsor 2 RYLA participants each year. We plan to continue with Pack 870 as well as our support of RYLA participants. We hope to add another level of support for the Interact Club at Allen High School.
