Set aside a recycling bag somewhere in your house. Over the next three months, when you are shopping for groceries and see something on sale buy two, keep one for yourself and put the other item in the bag to bring to the Conference. That way you can take advantage of food sales and collect items over several months. You can go to the Loaves & Fishes website to find a list of suggested donations.
Your club has reached a consensus. The members understand the need for new members. The planning is done. It is time to go out and actually talk to people about Rotary. Some one has to do it and you are it. This is one of the most important objectives your club has to achieve. It may be so important to your club that you have to postpone other initiatives to get this done.
