Thank You STEM Volunteers !!

Thank you to the volunteers who helped make the first STEM fair 11/13 at the Eastport site of the Housing Authority, in partnership with Let’s Go Boys and Girls, a success! Rotarians Elaine Shanley, Anne Myers, Steve Ames, Debra McGhee, Steve Kubisen, Michael Walsh, Rob Dews and Carol Gausz, and Rotary friend: Philip Aaronson. Two other Annapolis Rotarians who played a part in the fair as well: Clark “Corky” Graham, founder of Let’s Go Boys and Girls, and Delegate Shaneka Henson, who gave an inspiring statement at the event.

A few comments from our volunteers:

  • "I thought it was an outstanding event.  It was a real pleasure to see the creativity of the young people.”
  • "Yesterday's program was impressive.  I didn't know what to expect, but it was well organized and so interesting, and it was clear that kids had their eyes opened to new ideas. The HACA and Let's Go Boys and Girls, (and Rotary) folks were all great to work with." 

And from an organizer of the event:

  • “Collectively we created a tremendous impact on the underserved community in Eastport. As I was leaving the parking lot a man from the community called out to me and said, ‘Thank you for being here. It was a wonderful day.’”

Are you affiliated with a local community organization?

Let us know and we’d love to touch base with you about how Quick Impacts could align with some of their volunteer needs. 

Contact Carol at:  cgausz@blueheronassociates.com or 302-388-5301.

 

If you already know of a community need for which you’d like a small group of fellow Rotarians to help,

      Contact us at:  RCAQuickImpacts@gmail.com

             ... and we will help recruit a small group of other Rotarians to work with you. We will help create the sign-up link and connect it to Crablines and our Rotary Club website.  

 

Background:

Quick Impacts (QI), originating in the Breakfast group early in COVID, is now a club-wide initiative identifying and linking members to existing community service opportunities that:

  • Can be completed in a day or less (Quick) and make a positive difference in our community and our members’ fellowship (Impact)
  • Align with our Rotary missions
  • Could benefit from a small group (4-6) Rotarians helping out as a group and ideally in Rotary regalia such as Rotary hat, face mask, and/or shirt.

These will be listed in 2 places consistently (Crablines and website) with the date, the event name, and a safe, Rotary-created link to more details and sign-up.

Thanks to our great QI Committee members:

 

Lisa Ausherman, Bea Carson, Daryl Cooke, Jenn Denney, Carol Gausz, Becky Hogan, David Lillefloren, Carlyn Lowery, Elaine Shanley, and Lorie Stout.
