Tiger News!

There were 23 Mem­bers present on our EOT con­fer­ence call held on Jan­u­ary 16th. We are look­ing for­ward to our next con­fer­ence call when our Cal-Nev-Ha Lieu­tenant Gov­er­nor for Divi­sion 18, Ramon Rivera, will be our guest speaker.

Speak­ing of speakers…PIP Jim Rochford gave a rous­ing mem­ber­ship speech to a packed house at the Kiwa­nis Club of Tama­rac meet­ing pri­or to attend­ing the Flori­da Mid­win­ter cruise. While on board, he was pre­sent­ed with an inlaid EOT wood­en box with pic­tures of club members.

Our Sage Jim was joined by Kiwa¬≠ni¬≠ans on board includ¬≠ing his wife Deb¬≠o¬≠rah, our EOT Pres¬≠i¬≠dent Barb, her hus¬≠band Char¬≠lie, Mar¬≠i¬≠on Tay¬≠lor, Past EOT Pres¬≠i¬≠dent Gary and his wife Julia, Ray Kreig¬≠baum and his wife, Joe Mey¬≠er and LG Mary Lynn and Gov¬≠er¬≠nor Alan Yer¬≠govich. We are pleased to report a total of 3 inter¬≠clubs for Jan¬≠u¬≠ary in the process. Two were on board the Inde¬≠pence of the Seas and one was with the Kiwa¬≠nis Club of the Grand Cay¬≠mans at Guy Harvey‚Äôs Bar and Grill. 

Addi­tion­al­ly, EOT mem­bers PIT Gary and Julia joined Joe, Gov­er­nor Alan, LG Mary Lynn, Mar­i­on and Ray at the Sebring Flori­da Char­ter night. This was a club we opened pri­or to the Kiwa­nis Inter­na­tion­al Con­ven­tion in Orlan­do. It was made pos­si­ble by our own EOT mem­bers ful­fill­ing our club’s man­date. Thank you, Joe, for all of your efforts on our behalf. Our atten­dance will qual­i­fy for an EOT inter­club in Feb­ru­ary as well. Be sure to let Sec­re­tary Alan know of any of your ser­vice hours and oth­er inter­clubs for our month end report.

Sev­er­al new clubs have been opened recent­ly with the help of EOT mem­bers Alan, Jay, Valar­ie and Mary Jo includ­ing Jer­sey, Detroit and Nor­walk. When you do open a new club, please send me the club name and num­ber of mem­bers in the club and a pic­ture to jlevine@docpc.com. That way they can be giv­en prop­er recog­ni­tion in our newslet­ter. It is dif­fi­cult on a con­fer­ence call to catch the salient infor­ma­tion accurately.

Our EOT Club is try¬≠ing to have rep¬≠re¬≠sen¬≠ta¬≠tion from every Dis¬≠trict to pro¬≠mote our mes¬≠sage that it is vital to open new clubs and encour¬≠age mem¬≠ber¬≠ship mind¬≠ed mem¬≠bers to seek lead¬≠er¬≠ship roles.
