2011 Miss America Teresa Scanlan
OK. So this photo has little to do with having Dr. Anna-Mae Kobbe, District 7620 Paul Harris Society Chair, being a member of the College Park club so members think in terms of PHS even before they think in terms of getting their first Paul Harris Fellow. And yes, Anna-Mae is the District Governor Designate, meaning that if there is anything left of Rotary District 7620 after I finish screwing it up in 2015- 2016, Anna-Mae will be the District Governor in charge of cleaning up my mess. Any yes, the College Park Rotary Club, about 45 members or so, already has five PHS members so they’ve pretty much got their annual Foundation giving licked. With five PHS members contributing a total of $5,000 per year it takes the pressure off everyone else for the club to meet our new strategic goal of $200 per member giving for the SHARE program (Annual Program Fund). A good goal for PHS for a club is 10% of the membership. Do the math and see how one out of ten members can contribute 50% of annual TRF contributions. See what I mean? It just isn’t fair that College Park has the District PHS Chair, the District Governor Designate, AND already has five PHS members.
But if that isn’t bad enough, two weeks ago the College Park Club had Teresa Scanlan, Miss America 2011, as a guest speaker. I thought I would include her photo because someone on the District’s marketing committee told me that something about this photo might improve the readership of my blog. Whatever did they mean? It goes without saying that a photo of my visit last week was not thought to be overly important.
I suppose I should mention that current President, Mike Twigg, President Elect, Alan Sherer, and Past DG Bette Lewis, are all doing a fantastic job infusing new energy and enthusiasm into this club. Their picture is shown below. Do you care?
