New Faculty Advisor Needed.

We need a member of the Elon Faculty to take the place of our former advisor Mike Magoon. That means we need to be asking faculty if they would be interested in helping. Please have interested Elon faculty members contact Angie Smith at 449-8000 ext 253 if they are interested.

If you have any questions or concerns and would like to contact your officers for Rotaract by snail-mail feel free to send a message to our Campus Box 7119.

It was decided a couple of weeks ago that we will be conducting committee meetings at different times than during our regular club time. This means that you need to be in contact with the service directors to find out when they are holding a meeting. This decison was made so that we will be able to focus more on the club business during our weekly meetings instead of breaking off into sections. Also this system will allow for more new ideas to be presented and discussed by various members.

Community Service Projects

We are coming along well with our plans for upcoming community service projects but we still need more volunteers to help.

An afternoon Literacy Program has been arranged at Gibbonsville Elementary School on Mondays and Wednesdays from 3-4:30. We will begin tutoring and helping the kids at this school beginning Wed. Nov 4. If you are interested in helping and becoming involved please contact either Melissa Dawley at sw8strnbelle@aol.com or Emily Infanger at einfanger@elon.edu. They will be glad to answer any questions that you may have.

We are still making plans to do the Reading at a local library. Please stay alert for more details at a later date.

Here are some potential community service projects that we may be working on as the year goes on.

  • Visit a Rest Home around Christmas
  • Help out at a Vet. Shelter
  • Adopt a Grandparent
  • Help with Habitat for Humanity
  • Rotaract Special Olympics
  • Relay for Life

If you have any other ideas feel free to mention them at the next meeting.
