A new Rotary year is upon us, and let us say one final thank you to our now Past President Jeff Dinwiddie for his leadership this past year.
I had the opportunity to attended the Rotary International Convention in Hamburg with 28,000 Rotarians from around the world in June.  It was an amazing trip and I return with renewed excitement for the message of our new RI President, Mark Daniel Maloney, his theme of “Rotary Connects the World”.  Attending the international convention brings truth to that theme and is proof we are truly a worldwide membership organization that is making a difference every day!

Our club has an exciting year ahead of us, a year when we embark to create a new Strategic Plan with the help and guidance of Charles Weymouth... Stay tuned for more details.
In alignment with our new RI President, here are a few of my key goals’ for this year:
-              Enhanced member engagement - making sure that Rotarians have experiences that are personally and professionally relevant, fulfilling and FUN!  
-              Family-friendly Rotary opportunities -- ones that welcomes partners and children to our activities.
-              Increase our ability to adapt – that respect the time and responsibilities of current and prospective professional members.
-              Harness the power of connection – through more fellowship and social opportunities, personal rotary storytelling and hands-on volunteer service opportunities.
I welcome your ideas and suggestions for making our rotary club the very best it can be.  I look forward to leading you this year!
Yours in Rotary,
Allison Dunn
Our July 9 speakers will be two visiting fellows from the Mandela Washington Initiative. They are in Boise for 6 weeks of coursework, leadership training, professional development, and community engagement. They welcome networking and collaboration opportunities with US professionals, so please read their bios and consider to whom you can make an introduction. As Rotarians, let’s use our professional networks to help foster connections for these young leaders.
Remember that July 16 is our bone marrow donor recruitment drive, in support of former member Michael Barker and others suffering from blood cancer. After a presentation by Gift of Life Marrow Registry, we’ll have on-site testing and registration—making it another excellent week to invite a young guest!
Participating in the registry is fast and painless. If you are between the ages of 18 and 45 and in general good health, you are eligible to be screened and join the worldwide registry for patients in need, at no cost. (Donors between 45 and 60 are simply asked to consider the cost to process their sample.) A simple swab from the inside of your cheek is all it takes to determine if you are a match.
We will be set up to perform cheek swabs right there at Rotary! Please pre-register here so we have enough kits. Thanks!
We will be watering our Hulls Gulch seedlings seven Saturdays this summer. Could you help me recruit members or family to fill 4-5 of the watering slots? It’s a beautiful way to start the weekend... fresh air, birds singing, wildlife all around.

• Hulls Gulch is BEAUTIFUL on summer Saturday mornings-- starts the weekend off right!
• Seedling survival rate is higher if we can get these little guys through their first year.
• We want our projects and investments to last well beyond our initial sacrifices. Our work in Hulls Gulch can last for generations to come by providing enjoyment for humans, habitat for wildlife, and protecting the soil from the elements. (Think flooding.)

When: 8 am to 9 or 10 am
Saturdays: 6/29, 7/13, 7/27, 8/10, 8/24, 9/7, 9/21

Where: Grove (trail head) Parking lot which is just before the Foothills Learning Center. See map.
