The Rotary Club of Rogue Valley After Five, chartered in May 2009, was created by young professionals with the goal of serving the needs of our local and global communities through Rotary service. Now with nearly 40 members, we're excited about continuing to make an important impact on our community and the world.

Our meeting location is at Jackson Creek Pizza in the heart of MetroMedford. We welcome you to stop by after work and relax during happy hour for some fellowship with us! We would love for you to join us at one of our monthly volunteer projects too!

New WiFi is all in and ready to roll.  For club member use only, the SSID is JCP-AFR and the password is AFRrocks! and the public use is labeled as JCP-Public with the password as jcprocks.  Big thanks to Eric and all who helped to get this running.
 
Poker for Polio Planning Meeting was held after our general meeting last week, any we have many deadlines to meet to get this fun event off and running.  The primary and first deadline is for a new venue location that we need locking no later than the end of this month.  Table and event sponsors will be needed by December 18th along with quotes from food vendors.  This event is set for Leap Day, February 29th.  For any questions, please contact Scott.
 
LCS - Food Drive Sorting will be this Saturday, November 16th to help sort and count the food the Boy Scouts have collected to benefit the Rogue PowerPack Program.  Last year they collected over 13,000 items that valued around $6,500.00.  Lets see if they can raise more this year.  This event will run from 11am to 2pm though the location has yet to be determined.  We also had our tailgate party set for this Saturday, but with the food drive event, members that choose to will meet up afterwards for an informal fellowship to be determined afterward.
 
10 Year Anniversary Party will be held on January 25th and we looking for volunteers to help set this one up.  It will be in place of our annual post holiday party.  If you are interested in planning this event or helping, please let Eric know.
 
New Proposed Members are James Bradshaw and M.J. Jones and they both have been approved by the board to become members of our great club.  Please give both a big welcome and the official induction date has yet to be determined.
 
Rogue Power Pack Program has on now.  For a quick hour every Friday (sometimes Thursday) it is a fun little project that runs from 1:30 to 2:30 pm.  For the 2019-2020 school year at Orchard Hill Elementary we are now using the SignUp.com site for all of us to select our volunteer slots. Remember, we need two volunteers per week and it takes about an hour and you must have done your background check with the Phoenix/Talent School District.  
 
Speaking of Polio, Rotary District 5240 is putting together an immunization trip to India.  The dates of the trip will most likely be January 13 through January 25th.  Though the door to door immunization will be conducted for one day, participants will need to be in good shape, both physically and mentally due to the amount of walking and long hours.  Details for this trip were provided by our own PDG Chuck Root and the average cost to join this service trip is around $3,000 to $3,500.  There are a lot of requirements that need to be meet per the information provided (check with Eric for details), but it is something to look into for this or future immunization trips to help with the fight against Polio.

Winter All Rotary Social is on December 7th at the Growler King in Ashland.  Flyers were passed around last week on the specifics and we will update this entry to add those.

Rotary International Convention for 2020 is being held in Honolulu Hawai'i in June and registration is officially open on www.Rotary.org.  These are amazing events and beware the US held ones tend to have a higher attendance rate.  Also, did any see the Facebook post from our District this past week?  Someone in our District has the lucky chance to win paid flights to Hawai'i at our Rotary Year Kickoff Training in August and you must be present to win.
