The Rockford Rotary Flag Service Project is up and running.  We will need each member of Rockford Rotary to place an order for the flag service so that we can get enough funds to purchase the flags and equipment so that we can offer this service to the general public.
Click on the attached order form to print it off and purchase a year's flag service.  We would like to have the flags in place by Flag Day on June 14th.
Again, we need everyone to order a flag service to get this project off the ground.
Remember, proceeds from this project will go to support the Rotary Academy.

The Rockford Rotary Board, on January 23rd, approved a new membership dues option for Spouses and Partners who want to join Rockford Rotary together.  With this new policy prospective new members have three ways to join Rotary: as an individual; in a Corporate group; or with their spouses or partners.  Potential members, regardless of which category, must still be sponsored by a current Rockford Rotary member, complete the club's application and be approved for membership.  All members are expected to support the goals and objects of Rotary through service at the club and district level, as well as, through annual giving to The Rotary Foundation and Polio Now fund.
The goal of these additional membership options is to attract new members, allowing Rockford Rotary to more in both our local and global communities. The more people to help, the more we can DO GOOD IN THE WORLD.
Both of these policies can be found at http://www.Rockfordrotary.org under the Members Only tab, but can be accessed without a password.
