Rotarians - this note was sent to the Centennial Committee on March 25, 2018 in preparation for the April 4 meeting.  We thought you might like to stay "in the know!"

Feel free to join us.  We meet at 11am on the first Wednesday of the month at Brookdale in the 13th floor parlor.  Come by - we could use the help!




Centennial Team - 
Hope you are enjoying the beginnings of spring!
Keep in mind that we have a Centennial Meeting in about ten days.

Focus for this meeting on April 4 will be:

1. setting the parameters for the Opening Gala (Bob) and deciding if we include the Optimist Club's Essay Contest or a similar youth/peace poetry/essay/speech program (John)

2. brainstorming the 18 ideas we need for the Wednesday Journal branding campaign (Marc/Nichole).  We will be staging photos based off 12 of the 18 ideas.  Photos will be of our own Rotarians doing the service work of our Club.  (See Centennial Blog on our website for more info)

3. reaffirming budget and timeline (Cathy)

Other items we're tracking:
Lesley: Reverse Global Grant - Kidz Express (have we opened file in grant system yet? next steps?)

Ed / Ginie:  Installation - OPRFHS (on hold until Imagine OPRF's expected June report)

Bill: Installation - Murals (confirm it's a go with Camille; start looking for sites)

Bill/Ruth: David Sokol, History Book (any update?)

Charlie: Century of Service blog (how soon does your son want to start? get contact info to Marc so WJ can set up the blog)

Ruth/Charlie: we discussed combining Street Renaming with Charlie's installation in June 2019.  Never too early to pick a date!

TBD, working with Jim Lencioni: Sponsorship Program (how should we modify it for Centennial?)  On hold until we settle the opening gala details. 

Other?

See you April 4.
Cathy & Charlie
