Welcome to District 5010 e-Club of Alaska and Yukon!  We are a dynamic group of Rotarians dedicated to being a positive impact and we hope you are too.  If you are a Rotarian who finds yourself needing a little more flexibility for making meetings or a Rotarian needing a makeup, this is the place for you.  Here are a few ways you can become involved with the e-Club of District 5010:
  • Become a member, contact one of our board members and review club news on ClubRunner
  • Do a makeup meeting or view past meeting recordings featuring the dynamic speakers at live meetings.  Send an email to the club secretary with comments about the meeting to receive a makeup for your club.
  • Request to be added to the mailing list for the newsletter and updates on club activities and meetings (send your message to the club secretary)
  • Friend us on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/rotaryeclub5010/ 
  • Visit a member.  Are you traveling?  Our members are located throughout the world.  The club is Alaska-Yukon based, with an international outlook. We would enjoy meeting you in person and exchanging banners, and especially welcome you to join one of our live meetings at any time.

Meeting Schedule & Responsibilities 2017-18
 
eClub colleagues, thank you for your help with our meetings! This link contains the club and board meeting schedule for 2017-18, and a rotating list of member responsibilities for meeting support.   
 
As eClub members are busy and engaged in many activities, we realize this schedule may not always match your calendar. If you have a conflict,please arrange a "trade" with a colleague and and let Gayle know 48 hours (or more) in advance of the meeting for planning. Gayle's email is rotary5010@ak.net or 5010rotary@gmail.com.
 
If you're scheduled to provide the introduction, Gayle will send the speaker's biography to you at least 2 days in advance. You are highly encouraged to personalize and make it unique.   

Happy Thursday to you all in the eClub world!

Speaker and Rotarian Bill Wittich said something to the effect of: "Folks don't invite their friends to volunteer or to join Rotary because they're afraid of being rejected.  But here's the thing; they aren't saying "no" to you, just to the opportunity".  

That said, I would like to invite all of you.

Your presence would be very much appreciated and welcomed at our eClub meeting this Saturday, August 12th, 8:00am Alaska time.  Log-in information and agenda are below, and further below.  It will be followed by our regular monthly board meeting.
 

If you will not be able to join us, please send us a quick update via email that we can share. Thank you!

Please join my meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone.

-Yours in absent-minded, yet studious Secretarial Service,

Brian

Just a quick note - photos from meeting with the Milwaukee Mequon
After Hours Club!

They are new and do not have a banner. After Hours was the Club that joined one of our eClub meetings last November.  This motivated them to become become a hybrid club. They also expressed interest in working with us on an international project. That's a pretty great eClub banner!
Welcome back, from District Conference, everyone!
 
5010 has amazing Rotarians all around - fellowship, service, pajamas - all of it.  
If you are here seeking more information on the 5010 Big Clean, there is a link on the left hand side for reporting your cleaning! Look underneath Join Now.  (Larger icon being built).
Also exciting?  Clean-ups have been logged in Wisconsin and Florida SINCE THE CONFERENCE.  Every bag of trash matters.  Take care!
 
If you go to the link above, it'll take you to the most-current map.  You're able to zoom in on areas and see what's happening close to home.

Sitka recap and awards:

30 year anniversary of women in Rotary
100 year anniversary of the Rotary Foundation
150 year anniversary of the treaty for the purchase of Russian Alaska
 
How good it was to see some of our eClub members face-to-face, and catch up with old Rotarian friends.  Understandably, not everyone was able to attend.  The eClub had a great morning meeting!  While President Julie was unable to attend do to some other commitments, Past-President George conducted the meeting well (I think he’s done this gavel-passing before).  President-Elect Sharon put in some personal touches – like pin choice, and “coffee & cake” that made the meeting feel festive and special.   Many thanks to those who made the logistics and set-up happen!  Also, our Friendship Table looked great!
 
Among the awards/pinnings at the meeting were: 
Sue Foley Volunteer Award to Doran Powell
Foundation Giving Challenge (to the club!) for 100% of the members contributing (Good job, Foundation Chair, Sharon!)
Paul Harris+6 (+7 even?) for Sharon and Al Durtka
Paul Harris 1 for Brian Shimek and Floyd Shilanski
Paul Harris Society recognition for Wanda Cooksey, George Frushour, and Sharon and Al Durtka
Major Donor Recognition for Tom Nicolos
49 years of perfect attendance to Leo Rasmussen
Officer pins for the incoming board
Passing of the gavel from Julie (George) to President-Elect Sharon
 
Many thanks to all who attended, including special and honored guests Nancy Nicolos, Pat Frushour, and Al Durtka; our eClub mentors Marty Metiva and Terri Hall; our DG, DGE, AG, multiple PDG, club presidents, and fine individuals all around.
