Three Creeks is now a Peacebuilder Club

The Rotary Club of Three Creeks recently learned its application to become a Rotary Peace Builder Club has been approved.

Rotary District 5100 is a Peacebuilder District and is leader in the Peacebuilder Club program. Peacebuilder Clubs commit to having a Peacebuilder Committee, learn about Rotary's focus on peace and infuse peace building initatives into the club's work in the community.

Dan Sockle and Jim Moody have volunteered to serve as our Peace Builder Committee and will intially work on the 100 Peace Pole Project, which will be discussed more in future meetings.

Sustainable Rotary Club Project

Based on a decision made by the 12 club members in attendance at the Fellowship on June 29, we will submit an application to Rotary District 5100 to participate in the Sustainable Rotary Club Project.

If selected, clubs participating in this project commit to year-over-year growth in membership for three years, by considering innovative, flexible and sustainable ideas for building and retaining members. We also agree to share our ideas and their results with the District and Zone.

In order to participate in this program, our President, President-Elect and Membership Director all needed to agree this was a program worth participating in, which they did during the discussion at the Fellowship event.
