It's school time again, so we're starting another round of Rotary Leadership Institute!
 
The next class will be held on Saturday, September 12 at the Oklahoma Association of Community Action Agencies, 605 Centennial Boulevard, in Edmond. (On Kelley between 15th and 33rd) Class will begin at 8:30 and be over at 2:30-3:00. There is no charge for this class, and we will provide lunch. 

RLI is a series of three one-day classes that will educate, energize and engage our members. It is open and free for anyone to attend, but we would especially like for you to invite your club leaders (especially Presidents and President-Elects) and your NEW members. 
 
Just register at www.rotary5750.org and click on the RLI event on the left side. If you've never been to a class, register for Class 1. If you've been to Class 1, register for Class 2. If you've completed Class 2 we'll have Class 3 in the Spring.
 
If you'd like to be trained as a facilitator, please contact Michelle Schaefer at michelle@michelleschaefer.com

We in Rotary aspire to great deeds. We admire those who gave great gifts to humanity: Abraham Lincoln, who gave the gift of human dignity to the downtrodden; Mother Teresa, who gave the gift of compassion to the forgotten; Mahatma Gandhi, who gave the gift of peaceful change to the oppressed. Their very lives became gifts to the world.

We can be inspired by their example. We can be inspired to ask, how can I, in the life that I live – without neglecting the responsibilities that are so dear to me – how can I, too, become a gift to the world? As I considered my theme, I thought of...

 
 

District Governor Lance Phillip's August newsletter is now available online HERE.

 

 
 
Happy August everyone!!  Or as my wife and I like to call it…..”Time to get Mason ready for the school year!”   
 
August always seems to be a busy month for me.  As a lawyer, the summer hiatus on trials is over.  Around the middle of the month my son begins his new school year.  Fall sports “kick” into gear.  I don’t know about the rest of you but I’m always looking toward the end of the month for college and pro football to begin!!  There just always seems like something is going on and the calendar fills up quickly.
