Rotary membership, worldwide, seems stuck at 1.2 million, losing members in the US and regaining to this level - where we were in 2003.  Let's not take ourselves for granted, Lockport! We need a self-conscious look at ourselves...even when we are thriving.
 
 
 
The ever-growing Rotary Club of Lockport took a field trip for its December 16th meeting. The new Cornerstone Ice Arena wowed members and guests with its two NHL-sized ice rinks, spectator seating for 620 and its Performance Training Center.
The YWCA Niagara Culinary Program, which Rotary assisted in its capital funding early this year, served an excellent Noon-time meal
 
The $2 million Capital Campaign underway will complete funding by the Grigg-Lewis Foundation and the State of New York.
 
 
 
It was 32 degrees out in Lockport at 7 pm, December 2nd when Rotary District 7090 Clubs called into GotoMeeting for a conversation with Paul McAfee, District 7090 Public Communications chair, from his Asian teaching job in Singapore...where it was 94 degrees outside!
 
Lockport is among the 17 7090 clubs participating in Rotary-sponsored Facebook advertising campaign aimed at increased exposure for our service to communities and hopefully, someday, directly bringing in new club members.  Some take-home points:
 
  • Our district is spending over $60,000 ($60,454) for this campaign.  Spending is between $5- $8/day per club.  The current year's campaign started 7 years ago and will probably exhaust the budget sometime in February.
  • One idea gained was found in the example of the Akron Area Chamber of Commerce promoting the Akron-Newstead Rotary Club's Christmas Auction by reposting the announcement.  Perhaps there are community benefiting activities that our Chamber could boost.
  • Periodically, he pays Facebook to give a club a boost using an especially good photo.  Some Lockport targeting has been to people as young as 18 to an area circumscribing 310,000 people - although usually we want to target those within easy driving distance of our club meetings.
  • This week, our site has 20 "likes" with our posts reaching 1601.  Total "likes" to date are 883 with a 4331 total reach.  That's an increase of 51.5% from last week.  Some of our posts are shared with the district Facebook page.  They have 49 page "likes" with a reach of 17,414 this week.
  • Paul McAfee spends about 2 hours per day working on PR for Rotary!  Thank him for his service!

The Rotary Club of Lockport has had a wonderful first quarter for the 2014-15 Rotary year.  In this past quarter, we inducted two new Rotary Club members as a Business Class membership, and had two new individuals apply for Rotary Club membership. Our Giving Committee arranged for us to purchase the dining room set for the new Homeless Veterans facilities, and we as Club participated in the popular “Ice Bucket Challenge” to raise funds for ALS.  Several of our club members sold special edition newspapers on streets throughout the city on “Make a Difference Day” to raise funds for the United Way.  We worked to revitalize our committees, and have nearly 100% of membership signed up for at least one committee.


 

 
 
 

Rotary is a worldwide organization of business and professional leaders that provides humanitarian service, encourages high ethical standards in all vocations, and helps build goodwill and peace in the world. Approximately 1.2 million Rotarians belong to more than 32,000 clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.

Rotary club membership represents a cross-section of the community's business and professional men and women. The world's Rotary clubs meet weekly and are nonpolitical, nonreligious, and open to all cultures, races, and creeds.

The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International is a not for profit corporation that promotes world understanding through international humanitarian service programs and educational and cultural exchanges. It is supported solely by voluntary contributions from Rotarians and others who share its vision of a better world. Since 1947, the Foundation has awarded more than US$1.1 billion in humanitarian and educational grants, which are initiated and administered by local Rotary clubs and districts.

The Rotary Club of Lockport was chartered on May 1, 1919 with Charles A. Upson elected as the first club president and George C. Lewis elected as secretary. The club started with 25 charter members and grew to over 70 members within two years. Currently the club has over 50 members.
