New Years Message from VP Brandon Parrish

As we bring in the new year I want to provide everyone with a January update since we have a nontypical month. First, we return to our regular meeting time Wednesday the 8th after two weeks off due to the holiday schedule. With most new year plans, we typically all look to turn the page to a new beginning and make plans or resolutions for the forthcoming year. Our very own local Thomas Lynn from 1st National Bank will provide the first meeting of the new year with his stories of motivation, competing, and benefits of CrossFit. Some of us may want to be Rich Froning, some of us may want to be Thomas Lynn and it can be done!

This meeting will be followed by January 15th  and our traditional Student of The Month meeting.  

Then we are off again January 22nd because we are having our annual TTU Family Night with basketball and fellowship on January 23rd starting at 530pm. Please remember to sign up to reserve you spot for tickets and/or the catered reception. ATTENTION! We have now included invites to Cookeville Breakfast & Sunset, Livingston, Jamestown, and Sparta clubs. If we all come together for a common cause imagine the potential impact, we can show.  

Lastly for January 29th we are bringing in Glenda Terry with the TN Council Of Children and Youth

“Speaking” of our weekly speakers and programs; if anyone is interested in being a Monthly Program Chair to coordinate speakers for a month I have a few months open and I would like to give everyone an opportunity to serve. We all know great people with great stories to tell. You may have idea’s how to enrich our meetings. Please feel free to reach out to me about serving.

An IMPACT Leadership and Cookeville Rotary Project

Cindy Schueman

Our Cookeville Rotary and IMPACT Leadership partnered to provide the Putnam County High Schools with a two-day seminar for selected students.  Each of the four high schools set these days aside to allow for transitional training for students who may not be going on to college or trade school immediately but rather moving directly into the workforce.

The program provides these topics:

·         Diversity Development          

·         Personality Profile and Inner Personal Communication

·         Personal and Workforce Goal Setting, Tapping into Your Potential

·         How to Build a Simple Resume

·         Social and Professional Behaviors and Skills

·         The Relationship of Money to Life Goals

·         Transitional Awareness          

We have several professionals who assist with facilitating each of these topics. 

How our Rotarians can assist?  We often like to have an adult in the school location to offer easier transition from speaker to speaker.  We are always looking for qualified speakers to present on these topics when some of the regulars are unavailable.  Lastly, vetting is necessary for interaction with high school students.

Our school dates this year for both Putnam County School and Overton County Schools are:

Overton: October 22-23, 2019

Upperman: October 29-30, 2019

White Plains: November 6-7, 2019

Cookeville High: November 14-15, 2019 

Monterey: December 4-5, 2019

Overton: January 15-16, 2020
