Weekly Meeting - Robert Garrow, Pirate Leadership - "Leadership Principles from Successful Pirates"

July 14th Luncheon – Now we know why Bob Garrow is so happy and so calm – he knows the secret to successful businesses… a strategic plan. “Captain Bob” a fictitious pirate captain, explained that years ago pirates mastered leadership, were quite innovative in their tactics and energized people. He believes in the 3 basic principles that will ensure you success in your business… 1. Get your group on board and develop your plan; 2.Stay the course - stick to your objective and goals, and 3. Share your treasures, challenge and recognize your leaders, reward performance. Thank you to Bob who provided all attendees with a free copy of his book, “Ahoy Mates!”

President’s Rose – Helene Crabb is everywhere! She was introduced by Martin Diegel in 2004 and regularly volunteers for many of our hands-on projects, especially for our sponsored Seniors. In her professional capacity, she had provided translation for our Bed Race committee, and thus found a service club that allows her to serve the community. This spring she organized a Music showcasing 3 young musicians, including her daughter, and through the program advertising, raised $1,000 for Helping Hands. A dependable and devoted Kiwanian. Thank you Helene!

Thought For the Week: What’s the difference between a hunter and a fisherman? A hunter lies in wait, a fisherman waits and lies.
