What’s Required to Join Blairstown Rotary?
 
The main requirement to join Rotary is the desire to get involved and make a difference in our community.  We know that today’s work and family schedule take its toll on volunteer time, so we are working hard to make Rotary accessible to all who want to join and contribute.
 
Meeting Schedule
 
Monthly Business Meeting – 2nd Thursday @ 6 PM:  This is our primary meeting of the month.  The main business of the club is conducted, and it features a key guest speaker.  The meeting and speaker will typically conclude by 7 PM.  The meeting is followed by dinner for those that wish to attend.  If your time is limited, attending the Monthly Business Meeting will keep you fully informed about club activities.
 
Dinner Meetings – 1st, 3rd & 4th Thursdays @ 7 PM:  Dinner meetings focus on project work and general discussion.  Most meetings have a guest speaker.  Dinner meetings generally end by 8:30 PM.  Attendance is optional but welcome.  You can attend as many or as few as your time and circumstances allow.
 
Our meetings are held at Dalton’s Columbia Inn, 33 Decatur Street, Columbia NJ.
 
Activities
 
We hold and participate in many projects throughout the year.  What we can accomplish is only limited by the time, enthusiasm and skills of our members.  We are confident that we can find projects that match your time, skills and abilities.  Or maybe you have some ideas of your own, but you need people and resources to help carry them out.  That’s what Rotary is all about.
 
Throughout the year there are optional Rotary sponsored events. Examples include conferences, training meetings, fundraising events, holiday parties, picnics, golf outings, etc. Costs vary based on the event.  Participation is encouraged in order to build fellowship and to get better acquainted with other club members.
 
Dues
 
Dues are used to pay for the operation of Rotary so that the money we raise can be used to fund our projects and donations.  We also pay our own way when we attend dinner meetings.
 
Annual Rotary dues are $220.00, billed $55.00 per quarter.
 
Dinner Meeting costs can be paid $20 on attendance or $195 per quarter ($15/meeting).
 
The club strongly encourages our members to support The Rotary Foundation with a minimum annual tax-deductible donation of $100. Blairstown Rotary is proud to note that almost 100% of its members contribute to The Rotary Foundation. Rotary Foundation is highly regarded, internationally recognized and very efficient.
