Make sure a few of them are dirt

The Vision Committee is pleased to share with you the visioning results for the Boise Metro Rotary Club. This exercise was completed in the fall of 2019 to set a 3-year vision of what Boise Metro Rotary would strive to look like in 2022. This Vision was approved by the Board in December 2019.
Our goal now to achieve this vision is to enable and empower the Rotary Committees to adopt this 3-Year Vision and establish realistic annual goals and activities in the pursuit of this vision.
Our regular lunch meeting on last Tuesday of each month in 2020 has been designated for Club Business. Our next  Club Assembly on January 28th will be dedicated to hearing from the different committees about your 2020 plans to pursue these goals. The Vision Committee realizes that this is short notice and fulfilling these elements may require more volunteer time and/or resources than your committee currently has. Consider the meeting on January 28th as an opportunity to share the tasks your committee has been given and to ask for their help to meet the challenge by joining your committee.
In our visioning sessions earlier this fall, we had said that we wanted some swag to represent our club. So here’s your chance! We have both male and female fitting Polos in Long Sleeve and Short sleeves that will get our BMR Rotary Logo embroidered on the top left chest. FYI, for this go around, all polos will be in black color..
Short Sleeve (both Male and Female) -> $35
Long Sleeve (both Male and Female) -> $40
Please email me the quantities you would like. FYI, in true Rotary Spirit, there is a small mark up on the Polos to raise a little money for our club to give to charities.
Here's an example. For more options look for the email you should have received from Dave Wilson last week. Orders due by Jan 31st.
This is cool! Rotary International and Toastmasters have announced a collaboration to share their expertise and connections. Check it out:
Rotary International President-elect Holger Knaack revealed the 2020-21 presidential theme, Rotary Opens Opportunities, to incoming district governors at the International Assembly in San Diego, California, USA, on 20 January. Knaack, a member of the Rotary Club of Herzogtum Lauenburg-Mölln, Germany, is encouraging Rotarians to seize the many opportunities Rotary offers to enrich their lives and the communities they serve. 
Excited to share that Rotary and the Gates Foundation are renewing our partnership to endpolio. This will mean an additional $150 million for polio eradication every year for three years. Donate today and your contribution will be tripled.
Ian Riseley, RI President 2017-18, will live stream via Zoom to District 5400 on Thursday February 20. Yes, that's specifically our District clubs! He'll want to talk about his campaign to have each Rotarian plant at least one tree this year. Stay tune for details.
Boise Metro Rotary will be participating in "ReLeaf Boise" Day, a project to plant trees in the public right of way sponsored by Boise Parks and Recreation. I am looking for volunteers to sign up for this. I know it seems early but the City needs an accurate group size in order to plan how many trees each group will need. I would appreciate hearing from anyone who thinks they can fit this into their schedule. It will be on April 25, from approximately 8am-1:00pm. If you respond yes, and later have to cancel, I can find someone to take your place.
We also are participating in a Rotary tree planting day on March 28th from 10:00am to noon. This involves planting 1000 seedlings for riparian restoration along the Greenbelt near the Willow Creek Athletic Club on Saturday.  More details will be coming soon. Thanks to all and I am hoping to hear back from a few of you in the next few weeks. 
Good luck to Will as he moves his family to a new home.............Rick H. has returned to us after 70 days in Japan.....he notes that Christmas is nothing but New Years is a big deal...........Jeff is a great sure to order your T shirt by 1/31......we sang Cahill's favorite last week - Sweet By and By.......some old timers were remembering the Corner Club....
