Green Sheet

Currently our Green Sheet only is seen by those who are actually at our meetings and sometimes it does not get to all tables.
In an effort to enable ALL MEMBERS TO BECOME ENGAGED, the Volunteer Module within ClubRunner has been activated.
All members will have recently received an email generated from within ClubRunner inviting you to volunteer for the upcoming Murray Bridge High School Catering. Once you click the sign up button you will be asked to select either or both of the time slots available.
This system is working well in other Clubs and enables ALL ROTARIANS to contribute to the projects of their Club.
Please give it a try and provide feedback next meeting.
