Entrepreneurs: join Valley View Rotary via a free one-year membership.

Meetings are weekly Wednesdays, 7:30-8:30 am, at Famous Dave’s.

Rotary is a service organization with 1.2 million members worldwide. Read more about it at www.rotary.org. Valley View Rotary is one of nine area clubs; each a different meeting time and “personality,” but all work to make our community a better place.

Valley View Rotary’s major projects are Moon Tunes and Rock ‘n Ribs, but we also participate in iFeed, Rotary Lights, Mobile Meals, and more. Learn about us at www.valleyviewrotary.com.

Rotarians are guided by the Four Way Test:

  • Is it the truth?
  • Is it fair to all concerned?
  • Will it build goodwill and better friendships?
  • Will it be beneficial to all concerned?

Your membership will:

  • Introduce more customers to your business.
  • Increase your networking.
  • Help you become a strong community member.

Process:

The scholarship will be awarded via judged application, with membership beginning July 1, 2018 for one year.  Applications are available through April 30, 2018 on the Valley View Rotary website and the scholarship will be awarded by June 1, 2018.

Criteria: Your business must be between six months and three years old and cannot be a branch of an existing business or part of an otherwise already established business entity.

Your Rotary Involvement:

  • Attend Valley View Rotary meetings every Wednesday (breakfast included) 7:30-8:30 AM at Famous Dave’s.
  • Maintain 80% meeting participation, though meetings can be made up at other times and places, including online.
  • Be part of a committee and serve as greeter for one month (four meetings).
  • Give a 15-20 minute talk about you and your business during a regular meeting by December 31st, 2018.

The scholarship cannot be renewed or reapplied for, though you may continue the membership on your own. The scholarship ends if the business folds; it cannot be transferred to another person or business.
