Membership
Membership Chair Richard Davey is offering to reach out to your member prospect with a meeting reminder on Wednesday of each week. Just send him a quick email beforehand.
 
IMPORTANT NOTE: For prospective members who sign up while we're meeting remotely, your board of directors has voted to waive the one-time membership fee and the community benefit charge (which, while we're meeting remotely, supports meals for Interfaith Sanctuary).
 
It's really never been a better deal to be a Rotarian!
 
Announcing the Polio Plus Society - Become a member by October 24 for matching dollars!
Todd Fischer urged all members to join the Polio Plus Society.  All you need to do is open a new email, paste in the text below and send to District PolioPlus Chair Mary Reiman:

I pledge to donate a minimum of $100 each year until the world is certified polio free by the World Health Organization. Please enroll me in the District 5400 PolioPlus Society.

Rotarians and their friends who join the Society will be honored with a special pin and an “End Polio Now” bracelet which will be presented at your Club meeting, or other means if that is not possible.

The Gates Foundation is currently matching donations 2 to 1 making this an even better opportunity, as well as receiving Paul Harris Credit for your donation.  If you donate before World Polio Day (October 24th, 2020), Zone 26/27 will DOUBLE your recognition points.

The easiest way to donate is to log in at https://my.rotary.org then click DONATE:

  • The “easy” way to continue as a PolioPlus Society member is by utilizing the monthly payment option.  Click the Polio Fund, and select “Recurring Donation”.  For frequency choose “monthly” and for amount choose “other” and enter $10 in the “enter other amount” box.

  • If you are already donating $100 or more per year to PolioPlus, then join the Society and get the recognition you have earned.

Help Rotarians reach every last child and achieve our vision of a polio free world. 

District 5400 accepted the challenge to have 50 new PolioPlus Society members by October 24th.  

Sign up today!

 
Last Week's Program

Information About Your Membership
While we are meeting remotely, we will continue to include the standard meal charge of $77.34 in our bi-monthly invoices, only now it will be called "community benefit," to reflect where the money is really going. When we cannot meet over meals, your payment helps us keep our lease on the meeting room and storage space, and also benefits our community (most of our meals are donated to Interfaith Sanctuary). This all enables a seamless return to our in-person meetings once it is safe.
 
For those who continue to pay for this community benefit thank you.
 
If you are not able to catch a live zoom meeting, email president@boiserotary.org for a link to a recording of the meeting later.
