Mark your calendars for our Annual Man and Woman of the Year Luncheon — Nov 19, 2014. We will gather again at the Knights of Columbus with doors open at 11:15, luncheon at 12 noon. This year we are honored to have as our Keynote Speaker, retiring Congressman Jim Moran. The ISCC will be presenting him with a special token of our appreciation for his many years of Community Service. We are encouraging each service club to bring pamphlets and pictures to highlight your year’s accomplishments. We really want to showcase the tremendous about of effort and money that our clubs put back into our community. And we have FUN doing it !!!! So, update your brochures. Don’t have one? Make one !!! You Need Worms To Go Fishing !!! It will be a great time; make sure you encourage your new members especially, to attend. They will be motivated and inspired as they grow in service with one another. Then again, aren’t we inspired each time we enjoy lunch and fellowship with our Service Peers !!
Membership: Invoices will be going out this fall for your annual dues of $35. Dues helps the Council to print promotional material, maintain the Welcome to Arlington sign on Washington Blvd and your dues helped to sponsor Leadership Arlington’s Youth Program. The ISCC donates $1,000 to be used in a very unique way. The students are tasked with researching and visiting various non-profit organizations in Arlington. This affords them the invaluable opportunity of learning close up and personal about some
organizations they never knew existed. The students then come together, present their findings, make a case for the non-profit they feel is most worthy and in need of the $1,000 they have received from us. This year, the students voted to give the $1,000 to ASPAN. Isn’t that a GREAT learning experience?!! It is a wonderful way to nurture young philanthropists, isn’t it?? Each year, we reach out to member clubs, YOU, to contribute to this $1,000 gift. Please consider sending $100 from your club to help support this Annual Program–please make a check out to the Inter-Service Club Council with Youth program in the memo line. It is the one thing that we can say we do as a Council for community good.
We are hoping to have several Masonic Lodges joining our Council by our Annual Luncheon, as well as welcoming back the Historical Society. Please look for our ISCC meeting dates and times — it’s a great way to advertise what your club is about and what activities/fundraisers you have coming up.
Yours in service together,
Lion Elizabeth Schindler
