The Four Way Test

Of the things we think, say and do...
Is it the TRUTH?
Is it FAIR to all concerned?
Will it build GOODWILL and better FRIENDSHIPS?
Will it be BENEFICIAL to all concerned?

  Happy New Year!

I truly hope all is well with each and every one of you!
Personal Message -

It has been a while since I sent out the last newsletter and I apologize for that. I’ll offer an explanation with a very personal statement.

I have been totally consumed by the failing health of my mother for two months. She ended up leaving this world just days before Christmas. It has been one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to deal with and continue to deal with. I know many of you have suffered the same or similar pain in your lives and can understand exactly what it is like. My mom had a long life, was very smart and witty, loved her family and knew how much she meant to all her children. I’ll paraphrase an old adage now. Don’t be haunted by words you didn’t say. Let those you love know how much they mean to you, often! One day you’ll be happy you did.

Member Doing Good in His Community 

Matthew shared a picture of a venture close to his heart. Here he is at Albermarle Elementary School in Charlotte, NC on December 18th. This is a school where the vast majority of the students are from families in need. Matthew was handing out $25 gift cards to a local Bi-Lo Supermarket on behalf of Pit Stops For Hope. He is a new board member of this group. You can check them out at



Have You Paid Your Dues?

Invoices were sent out early December and the due date has passed! If you missed that email notification, please let us know immediately! If we know your payment is "in progress", your membership can be continued. Email Treasurer, Ashley, at the email listed above left or contact me.

Please don't let your membership stop because of an overlooked email!

E-Club of the South on Wordpress and Facebook

Basic Attendance = Review all blog posts and leave a comment! 

New Club Website coming soon! is your club "meeting" site. Review the posts and leave a COMMENT to attend. Attendance is a requirement of club membership! It's also a great place to go back in time and view club history via past posts listed on the right margin by month and year.

Although Anna S. is very good about announcing blog updates via email, response/comment levels are disappointing. When you visit the blog, you should see a blue "follow" options box pop up in the lower right corner giving you the options to enter your email address for instant notification of updates. This may work better for you.  If you are having problems leaving your comments, I urge you to let me or Anna know so we can get you over that little hurdle. 

Look for our Rotary EClub of the South public page on Facebook and "like" it. We also have a private "closed group" by the same name on Facebook that you should be a member of. If you are active on FB and have not received an invitation to join this group, let us know. This can be a good social exchange location for club members where the comments are only visible to group members!
