Proposed Service Projects Committee Report for Club Assembly June 2011  

It is our Clubs intention for the Service Projects Committee to comprise of Community/Vocational, Youth Activities, Fundraising and Risk Management sub-committees, with International projects linked with Foundation.

It is our intention this year to have a busy and varied programme, continuing last years aims of raising our profile and improving our links with the local community at all age levels. We will continue to keep in touch with the 12 Community Councils and all Primary Schools in West Fife, and have already committed to assisting at the second North Queensferry Boat Festival in August.

The full programme of Community/Vocational events is still to be finalised, but continued participation in the Kids Out day, the Stroke Awareness programme, Shoebox collection, Community Suppers and organising a replacement for the Senior Citizens night out is anticipated.

Considering Youth Activities, we aim to continue with our involvement in the Primary Schools Quiz, RYLA camps and the Rotary Young Chef competition. We also intend to continue pursuing the possibility of establishing an Interact Club with one of the local High Schools.

Our fundraising programme will be tailored to suit the budgetary requirements of the Service and International Committees, but as a base point we would intend to run our Ultimate Quiz night in conjunction with Children in Need in November for a fifth year and our AM-AM Golf event for the fourteenth year in the last week in May.  The new Fundraising Convenor Jack Pryde will provide further information later this evening. The opportunity to apply for District Simplified Grants will also be assessed in finalising our budgetary requirements for the year.

Our Risk Management sub-committee will assess each event, helping to reduce or eliminate risk as possible in events undertaken and produce a Risk Assessment for each specific activity.

The Service Projects Committee Convenors will meet on a regular basis throughout the Rotary year to continually review our goals, progress made and implement any amendments to our plans as necessary, and will work in conjunction with all other Club Committees to hopefully achieve a fulfilling and successful Rotary year.
