THERE WILL BE NO MEETINGS ON December 24th or December 31st
Enjoy the holidays with your family and friends!

Membership Update
Please remember to take a look at the boards at the entrance to the weekly Rotary Luncheon. About half of the Companies /Organizations have a member's initials or name next to it. This means that one of our fellow Rotarians knows someone at that company who may be a good Rotary candidate. It is impressive to us that our members are so connected with the broader community that we have possible Rotary candidates at about half of the company names on the board.  We would love to see a Rotarian's initials next to EVERY COMPANY/ORGANIZATION on the board. Now that would really be a feat! Please give it some thought and fill in the blanks.

Supporting our Foundation thru Amazon 
As you finish your last minute shopping please remember a simple way to help our club!
On-line shoppers who use Amazon can designate a (very) small percentage of the proceeds
from their purchases to a 501(c)3 of their choice. Simply shop thru
instead of Amazon; select Rotary Club Of South Jacksonville Charities Inc from a list of
charities, and 0.5% of the purchase price will be donated to the Foundation. It may not
seem like much, but the cumulative effect might be considerable, especially with holiday
shopping underway.

Minutarian Update, Week 25
Rotarians of 6970,

It’s not to early to start thinking about RYLA. This years Rotary Youth Leadership Awards event will be held in June at the University of North Florida. Help break the attendance record, let’s average two students per club this year. Please start lining up and interviewing candidates for this great opportunity. For more information on RYLA, please visit the District Website.

I have a solution for those of you looking to cut that tax burden a little bit; it’s not too late to make a donation to our Rotary Foundation. Save some money while at the same time improving and saving lives.

Many of our clubs are having their holiday parties. Please stay safe while having a great time!
