We speak weekly about how our club does not have an attendance requirement but more so a participation requirement. While the weekly lunches have been amazing, another near 40 people this past week, I wanted to highlight an unsung hero.
Our motto is Service Above Self and I believe Bryant Stone, head of our service committee, exemplifies that. Him being a business owner and Father does not always allow him to come to our weekly meetings, but do you truly know how much he does for the club? Spoiler alert, the answer is a tremendous amount. A few years ago our club was known for doing two, maybe three or four things in the community. We are well past 10 well known events and it takes someone to lead and coordinate all those charges. Bryant is our guy!
So, when you see Bryant please thank him with handshakes or hugs (hugs preferred).
Thank you to everyone for doing simply what you do!
The Rotary Club of Ashburn, VA is pleased to welcome this week's guest speaker, Vickie Koth, Executive Director for Good Shepherd Alliance.
The Good Shepherd Alliance came into existence when a pastor began taking homeless people into his own home over twenty years ago. The first year he took in over 14 homeless youth, working with the local Sheriffs department. This began the process of organizing the community in establishing the first organized homeless shelter called Loudoun County Emergency Housing Alliance. This predecessor to The Good Shepherd Alliance began raising funds to house the homeless for a short time at a local area motel. Area developers then became involved by allowing use of vacant residences in the spirit of mutual responsibility in addressing this problem.
Join us for Trivia Night Tuesday, March 28th, 7:30pm at the Ashburn Pub. This is an excellent way to support your club through a little fun and fellowship. For further information on the great event, contact Angela Koczan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
