We will hear from Heidi Webb, new Assistant Governor for District 7620 for Montgomery County Rotary Clubs. Heidi helped install our new officers last month. She’ll be back for a presentation. Here’s an excerpt from Heidi’s profile on LinkedIn:
My expertise in board development, strategic visioning, capital campaigns and major gift solicitation, as well as event planning and management and grant writing is coupled with an unwavering enthusiasm for what I do and what I know to be possible.
In addition to my work, I volunteer extensively. I am a Rotarian (former President of the Rockville Rotary Club), and have served on more than a dozen benefit committees for multi-million dollar fundraising events. I helped author and sign into law, a teen suicide prevention bill in 2005. I continue to advocate for this and other causes, because I strongly believe that we can all do our part to make the world a better place.
The meeting included a discussion on plans for the coming year with newly-installed officers and directors. Key issues are community service projects, membership, and fundraising. President Carmela (below) distributed copies of a new club directory, which lists all current members and has a calendar of the events of the coming year. If you missed the meeting and would like a copy, contact Carmela.
Message from Heidi Webb, former president of Rockville Rotary and new Assistant District Governor:
Rockville Rotary Club has a signature event, the Twilighter, coming up on July 20. Now, we feel good about the runner numbers (expecting 500), but sponsorship is low and (perhaps the most critical) volunteers are low. In order to have a safe and meaningful event, we are required by the City of Rockville to have another 100 volunteers lined up between now and then. Certainly, I’d like to see more money come in for them, but ultimately if we can’t get the volunteers we can not host the run. Signup is online at: https://rockvilletwilighter.org/volunteer.
