The Club Service Committee is perhaps the most critical committee of the Club, because without it none of the other good things the Rotary Club of Evergreen does would be possible.  It is responsible for all of the day-to-day activities it takes to keep our Club strong and active.  These include:
  • Meeting Services – Club Service members keep our meetings fun, interesting, and informative by performing a variety of tasks including development of the programs and obtaining outstanding speakers, photographing and video-taping activities, providing audio/visual services, and coordinating member attendance and services for Area and District meetings and events.
  • Awards and Recognition – Club Service ensures that Club members are appropriately recognized with awards, including drafting nominations for District and National recognition.
  • Planning Fellowship Activities – Our Club is known throughout the District for having fun.  The Club Service Committee plans and implements all of the social activities of the Club such as the Holiday Party each December, the Changing of the Guard Party in June, Dine-Around, a dining experience in the homes of members to ensure we meet and associate with new people every month, and Rowdy Rotarians, another dining experience in which we meet for fellowship at one of the many local restaurants that have supported us through the years.
  • Family of Rotary – Another service for members that falls under Club Service is Family of Rotary, which keeps members informed of life events that may affect our members and their families.  The Family of Rotary coordinator also organizes support activities such as hospital visits, meal services, etc. for members who have dealt with setbacks or tragedies in their lives. 
  • Fundraising – While fundraising is often carried out at the direction of the Board  independently of the Club Service Committee, the committee often provides the volunteers needed to staff the functions.  These include such things as Project Valentine, an activity whereby members buy Valentine favors which are then donated to residents of a local care facility; party boards, small theme parties at a member’s home to raise funds for a specific program; 100 Holes of Golf, our signature fundraising event of the year in which teams representing various causes compete for pledges; Mardi Gras, a new community activity in 2015 to raise funds for International Service; and our Loyalty Card Program, in which a portion of every expenditure at local grocery stores is returned to the Club for distribution to our service committees.
  • Coordinating Grant Activity – A Club Grants Committee, operating under Club Service coordinates all District and Global grant activity of the Club to ensure quality in grant applications and effective oversight and accountability.
