Jim Carriere has a ShelterBox wine idea!
Jim Carriere sent the following announcement to Susan Lundy (and other Shelterbox supporters) as a personal email.  Susan Lundy thinks it needs more publicity!!!
I wanted to announce that there is a new way to support ShelterBox. Sno Road Winery in Echo, OR is now producing a 2013 "In Tents" Cabernet at $38/bottle + S/H. Pictures are attached.
This is the normal price for many of their wines and all profit from these sales is being donated to ShelterBox. The owners are only recouping their production and bottling costs. I can tell you that the sale of each case will sponsor a Shelter Kit like the ones we are currently distributing in Syria and Iraq.
Want to purchase? Call the winery direct at 541-376-0421. Have your credit card ready, tell them you want the ShelterBox In Tents Cabernet, and Lois will take it from there.

Linda Palermo discussed Sales Training Techniques
Linda Palermo, of Sandler Training gave inspiring, practical, and easy-to-implement tips for changing our sales techniques when working one-to-one with prospects.  She also offered as a prize the best-selling Sandler book "You can't teach a kid to ride a bike at a seminar"!   We really enjoyed her energetic presentation.
Assembly meeting:  President Carola explains her goals
President Carola has set the bar pretty high for her year in terms of the Club Goals she has set with Rotary International:
GOALS…30 members  (current 22)
10 new members  (In other words, don't lose more than 2 to get 30 at end of year)
3 people participating in Rotarian Action Groups
5 people in participating in Leadership Development at the district level
10 attending the district conference
3 in Rotary Fellowships (already there)
8 in District Training
She also has Board approval for a lot of new projects (more to come later on this topic)... including the following listed in the Rotary Area of Focus:
1.Opening the World scholarships.
2. Noushin Sharif-Murphy Interact scholarships post-secondary
3 Senior Financial Counseling (both coming up in the Civic Center and proposed for the Canal)
4. San Rafael High School Interact Club Support
5. Start a Rotaract Club at COM
6. Provide Dictionaries to 3rd graders
7.  Support school gardens
1. Supporting Family Services Agency holiday giving program
2.  Work to end sex trafficking in Marin
1  Shelterbox support
2  Tree planting next Spring in honor of Earth Day (Samuel P Taylor Park)   (promoting peace???)
3.  Supporting End Polio Now campaign.
so we are working in 3 of the 6 areas of focus.  We also may also use District Directed Funds for clean water (PROVIDING CLEAN WATER, SANITATION, or HYGIENE, or GROWING LOCAL ECONOMIES (microcredit)
Finally, Carola asked all of us to come up with Social Projects and functions we wanted to have this year.  She will report on that next time!
