Anchorage South Rotary, working with Russian Jack, East and Hillside Rotary clubs are building raised garden boxes at the elementary schools this year in a matching District Grant project.  We had around 40 people with their kiddos, show up, to build and fill them with dirt.  We can't wait for next spring, so we can help the children at Abbot Loop Elementary school fill them with vegetable starts, nurture them over the summer and then harvest in the fall of 2019.  They will be donating their crops to Childrens Lunchbox.  Fun was had by all!

Welcome to the 2015-16 Rotary Year

President Magic Mike Ferris here. I am super excited for this year as President of Anchorage South Rotary. I love our club and want to see it grow. The three areas of focus I have this year are Membership, Involvement, and Projects.  

Membership -
We need to continuously invite new members. The new members we have do a fantastic job of bringing energy to the club and excitement to get involved. We need to retain our current members by getting them engaged. To achieve this I am dedicating one Thursday a month to be a Social meeting. These are great tools for allow us to get to know one another. Another way is small group gatherings/firesides. We had a few of these last year and they were a lot of fun.

Involvement -
In order to grow this club we need to keep members involved and engaged. Committee Chairs need to no longer be a committee of 1. Yes it may be easier but it is not benefiting the members of the club. Part of Rotary is the Life learning experience along the way. Being a committee of 1 doesn't allow others to learn from you or feel like they are contributing to the club. So reach out and ask for help. The goal is to have each committee have a minimum of 3 people. The past chair, the present chair, and the future chair. This will allow for people to mentor each other into the role. 

Projects - 
We did a lot of projects this last year. They were fun and didn't require a lot of time. Relay for Life was a 2 hour commitment, the Chinook Long Jump we started with coffee and were done by Brunch, and then Mothers Day flowers was 2 hours of passing out flowers. We need more of these small projects, Michael Archer has Slamming Salmon where ASR will take a 2-4 hour block. Bring your project ideas to someone on the board, think about them and be specific (What, When, and How).

Again I look forward to this year.

President Magic Mike Ferris
