District Installation:  June 30.
Club Installation:  July 12
Please note the other dates in the Calendar.  In June we will not have another regular lunch meeting.
Please consider going to the District Installation on June 30 at Danversport Yacht Club 6 pm (doors open at 5:30).  Our weekly meeting is canceled to encourage people to attend the District Installation.  It would be great to have a good crowd supporting Sheila as she takes the co-reigns as Co-President.  Please email Jeanne Borawski if you can attend.  The Club will pay for members to attend.  I will be away on vacation.   Also, Peter and Tim will be installed as Assistant Governors.
Our Club Installation event will be on the evening of July 12.  Exact time and place to be announced shortly. 
Thank you all for what you do for Reading and the community!
Rotary Representing at Town Day
We had a good crew of Rotarians at Reading Lion's Friends and Family Day at Birch Meadow on June 11.  We spun and gave out cotton candy and distributed informational flyers to all vendors about our upcoming Fall Street Faire (Sunday, September 11).  The cotton candy line was long and steady all day, until we ran out of product.  Lots of goodwill on display all day.
In addition, we were one of the Sponsors of the event.
The Reading Rotary cornhole boards (not pictured here) were also on display, also.
Congrats to the Lions Club on ramping up this event after the pandemic derailed it in recent years.
It was such a great family and community event.  Thanks to all the members who came out to work and support Rotary!
Fall Street Faire In the Works
The Reading Fall Street Faire Committee has begun regular meetings.  The date is set for September 11.  If you want to get involved in the planning, please contact John Feudo.  Or come to one of our planning meetings.  Many hands make light work.
Please block out the day of September 11.  We need all Rotarians and many additional community volunteers to help.  We will have more details, but we will be working that day starting around 7 am through breakdown and clean up.  All Rotarians will be expected to take a shift during the day.
Our next planning meeting is June 21 at 5 pm at Reading Library.
Reading Achieves DEI Citation
District 7930 Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Committee has created a Citation for clubs to achieve progress toward DEI.  In reviewing the Citation requirements (25 suggested action steps, Club must achieve 13 of the 25 for certification) Reading has already taken many of the action steps suggested by the Committee.  With a few additional modest steps, we have achieved the requirements.  Our DEI Tracker can be viewed here.
Rotary values a commitment to individual and Club efforts to build respect, dignity, fairness, caring, equality and self-esteem.
A top priority for Rotary District 7930 is growing and diversifying our membership to make sure we reflect the communities we serve and are inclusive of all cultures, experiences, and identities.
To help us achieve our goal, the Rotary International Board of Directors passed a diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) statement, which was just recently updated and expanded in the summer of 2021:
At Rotary, we understand that cultivating a diverse, equitable, and inclusive culture is essential to realizing our vision of a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change.
We value diversity and celebrate the contributions of people of all backgrounds, across age, ethnicity, race, color, disability, learning style, religion, faith, socioeconomic status, culture, marital status, languages spoken, sex, sexual orientation, and gender identity as well as differences in ideas, thoughts, values, and beliefs.
Recognizing that individuals from certain groups have historically experienced barriers to membership, participation, and leadership, we commit to advancing equity in all aspects of Rotary, including in our community partnerships, so that each person has the necessary access to resources, opportunities, networks, and support to thrive.
We believe that all people hold visible and invisible qualities that inherently make them unique, and we strive to create an inclusive culture where each person knows they are valued and belong.
In line with our value of integrity, we are committed to being honest and transparent about where we are in our DEI journey as an organization, and to continuing to learn and do better.
We look forward to a presentation of our Citation by District Leadership at an upcoming date.
