Global Peace Conference will be held in Ashland on September 21 starting at 8am at the Ashland Hills Hotel & Suites and lunch is included.  Ambassador Anwarul K. Chowdhury, former Under-Secretary-General and High Representative of the United Nations and founder of the Global Movement of the Culture of Peace, will be joining us to learn first-hand how Ashland Cultural of Peace Commission partners with the city, local non-profits, and others to transform the city with the vision of the Culture of Peace.  Tickets are available via www.eventbrite.com.

Vine and Pints for Polio hosted by the Rotary Club of Medford will be held on November 1 at Walkabout Brewing Company.  Great event were portions of the beer and wine proceeds go to Polio Plus for a certain time frame.  Was unable to get the time frame at time of bulletin but will update.

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.

New Proposed Members are James Bradshaw and M.J. Jones. Both have turned in their applications for review so please make them feel welcomed.
 
Raining Cats and Dogs is moving along and we really need everyone's help to sell those tickets and remember to bring in any sold tickets stubs and funds to the meeting every week to Heather or Thomas.  Big thank you to Heather for getting us some donated radio time to advertise and we should have tickets available and purchase can also be made via the website using the PayPal link.  
 
Rogue Power Pack Program will be starting up again on October 4th.  For a quick hour every Friday (sometimes Thursday) it is a fun little project that runs from 1:30 to 2:30 pm.  This program is amazing and the growth that we have seen with new schools added every year.
 
100% Attendance for August were Heather and Jennifer---Congrats!!
 
Oktoberfest will be held on September 28 from 12 to 10pm for the general public and the volunteer hours are from 11am to 8pm.  Jennie will be in charge of the signups for the various tasks available and remember the parking is our 1st priority.  As Scott will be out of town that weekend, Janel will be our lead on the parking.  The sign up sheet is here and please make sure that you sign up.  Also we will also have the vendor tent for Raining Cats and Dogs there to get more tickets sold, but these shifts do not qualify for fundraising funds like the ones specfic to Oktoberfest.
 
StoveTeam International was our speaker last week and if you were absent, you missed a good one.  After the meeting, many members were interested in joining a team to go and do a stove project and StoveTeam does four trips a year where they visit one of the partner factories.  Each team is comprised of ten to twenty individuals and the cost is $1600 per person (plus airfare) and includes all meals, lodging, and in-country transportation.  This is currently space available for both the January and March 2020 trips.  When in Antigua, Guatemala, participants receive one-on-one Spanish instructions during most mornings and help in either the building, testing, or distribution of the stoves in the afternoons.  For more information, visit stoveteam.org and you can also donate $50.00 which equals the cost of one stove.  Spread the word and we do have some brochures leftover also.

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!
