Greetings Fellow Rotarians,
As you read these lines, the details of our conference in the Annapolis Valley (June 1-4) are being finalized. We are looking forward to a wonderful event as we celebrate moving Boldly Forward with our Service to Humanity.
Our incredible conference team has tried to think of everything that will make your visit to the Annapolis Valley, a memorable one, and your exposure to Rotary education top notch. If you have not yet made plans to attend, I encourage you to consider it seriously. It will be a wonderful opportunity to connect with Rotary friends, make new friends, enhance your professional development and Rotary knowledge and see the Annapolis Valley at its best.
The annual training for our club members – training for leaders of clubs (TLC) is nearly over. A session in Goose Bay on Saturday May 6th will complete the cycle. Thanks to all who participated.
This appears to be Charter Night season. Congratulations to all who have celebrated recently or who will be celebrating soon. Congratulations, as well, to St. Johns Northwest who put on an incredible fundraising gala Saturday evening, in support of the Centre of Hope, an affordable Housing project in St. John's, Hope Air, a charitable organization providing transport to health care for those in need, and support to a hospital in Zimbabwe.  Many thanks for all of the volunteer hours that were expended to make the event a success.
Until next time

Technical Session Reminder
There was a small but interested group for the first of the technical sessions that was held on April 12. We shared tips on how to more effectively use Clubrunner to better manage member information or communicate with Rotarians. We also talked about website design and integrating  Facebook with the Club's site.
In the second session we'll explore how to easily use RI's Rotary Club Central to help meet the requirements for the RI Presidential Citation and manage club planning. Other topics will be covered as participants ask.  
There is a whole range of tools available to make the work of the club's officers  and committee chairs easier... you just need to know they are available and how to use them. I'm open to questions and suggestions for topics so the sessions can be interactive.  Based on requests and interest, additional sessions will be scheduled.
The sessions is open to everyone interested and will be held on Wednesday May 10th from 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM ADT.  Please register at so that you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the training.

There are lots of tools available to help with effective operation of a Rotary Club. Let's learn about them. Contact me if there are specific questions or topics you'd like to see covered. If I don't know about it,  there are others we can find who can help us.
