Dear Rotarians, 
The Golf outing is just about 1 month away.  We are looking for every Rotarian to participate in some way.  There are at least 4 ways you can help.
You can also sign up for dinner only if you are not a golfer.  CLICK HERE for dinner tickets.
Email Template for Recruiting Golfers

Here is an email template that you can use to help recruit golfers for our Golf Outing in August:

I hope you will consider putting together a team of golfers to play in this year’s Golf Outing cosponsored by the Sun Prairie Rotary Club & Education Foundation.  This tournament is our main fund raiser and we hope to have at least 25 teams [100 golfers] registered for this important event.
The tournament will be held on Thursday, August 3, 2017 at the Oaks Golf Course.  For a team of 4 golfers the cost is $350 which includes box lunch, golf with a cart, and dinner.  Individual golfers can register for $90 each and we would then try to create a foursome for all of those that register as singles.  In addition to golf, there will be many prizes, special events, and raffles for all to participate in.
You can register and pay online by clicking on the following link and pay with a credit card:

Please invite your friends, co-workers, family, neighbors, etc....

2017-18 Rotary Theme

Securing Rotary’s future

In his address to the 2017-18 class of district governors, Riseley also urged clubs to improve their gender balance and lower the average age of their members.

Only 22 percent of Rotary’s members are women, up from 13 percent 10 years ago. At that rate, Riseley said, it will take another three decades for Rotary to achieve gender parity.

We know that we can do more together than we could ever hope to do alone.

“Three decades is far too long to wait to achieve a Rotary that reflects the world in which we live. We need to make it a priority now,” he said.

Noting that 103 of the 539 incoming governors are women, Riseley said they are the type of women we need in Rotary, “leaders who will help Rotary connect with, and represent, and better serve, all of the members of all our communities.”

Riseley also believes it is imperative that clubs find ways to attract and engage younger members. Today only 5 percent of reported members are under 40, and a majority of members are over 60, Riseley told the audience.

“Consider what Rotary stands to look like 10 or 20 years from now if we don’t get very serious, very soon, about bringing in younger members,” Riseley said.

Clubs will make a difference this year through their own decisions, said Riseley, but it will take teamwork on a global scale to move Rotary forward and secure its future.

“We know that we can do more together than we could ever hope to do alone,” he told incoming governors. “I ask you to keep that spirit of teamwork and cooperation always in your minds and to take it back with you to your districts.”
