“HOW TO DOUBLE YOUR CLUB IN 60 MINUTES OR LESS” is the title of Henderson’s PE David Higgs’ pamphlet. My take: How a 20 member club added 20+ members in one fell swoop.
At the District Assembly, PE David was inspired to grow his club and took that opportunity to rope in co-conspirators PDG John Henson and PDG Carroll Greenwaldt. They planned and printed invitations for members to hand out to a special meeting, with the luncheon paid by the club.   Their officer installation on June 17th was their special meeting, but you can use any meeting for this invitation.  The goal was for each member to invite at least 5 guests that would make good members.
Allow at least 4 weeks to build a guest list. Guest speaker PDG Carroll gave 95 in attendance a 10 minute overview of Rotary touching on history but more importantly the good works Rotary and The Rotary Foundation—locally and in the world. So far, 20 guests filled out the table cards to express interest (likely MORE will respond).  Interested to host this in your club?  Contact DA Shirley Pinnix Evans at rotary5830da@gmail.com and she will send  a copy of David’s pamphlet, invitation, table card, member application and how-to’s.
What a great opportunity to OPEN UP after the pandemic shut-down, and let the community know that ROTARY IS ALIVE AND WELL AND MAKING A DIFFERENCE!! COME JOIN IN THE FUN!! Submitted by: District 5830 Membership Chair, PDG Lee Montgomery
