To the Friends and Family of Rotaract Oshkosh,
Great news. Like, really, great news.
Two months ago, we sent in chartering paperwork to Rotary International in Evanston, Illinois. And, not long ago, we learned that Rotary International recognized us as an official Rotaract chapter. We now join more than 900 other Rotaract clubs around the world.
What that means for us is, well, we need to plan a bash—and fast!
We’ve decided to hold our chartering ceremony on Tuesday, 30 April, at 6 pm at the Algoma Club with Manila Resto providing an array of food and drinks for us to enjoy. The very special thing about this particular shindig is that we won’t be alone: It will be a joint celebration with Oshkosh Interact clubs to celebrate their recent recognition by Evanston, too. Rotarians from both the Downtown and Southwest clubs, as well as members of the Oshkosh e-club will also be with us, in addition, to members of Rotaract clubs from Fond du Lac, the Fox Cities and Milwaukee.
This is an incredible opportunity to learn more about Rotary and meet people of all ages who have come together through Rotary, and through “Service above self.” That is, after all, what we’re all about.
So, with this note, we’d like to invite you to join us. Drop by the meeting tonight at 6 pm at the Algoma Club to learn more from Jerry, Dan and Becky, Joe and Michelle. (I will be there in spirit, sending lots of good thoughts from Washington, DC.) If you’re able to attend – and we hope you are – please sign up this evening or drop us a line at [email protected]
This is a very exciting time for us and we’re thrilled to be growing so quickly. As we continue to grow, so, too, will our ability to contribute to the Oshkosh community. We hope you’ll grow with us!
Very sincerely yours,
