Service Committee Update- February 2010

The Service Committee awarded grants to DHHS in January totaling $1,033.45 to purchase hearing equipment for nine individuals.

We have elected to send this year’s Quota International Club to Club donation of $500 to the Quota Club of Mandaue, The Philippines, to assist in funding a vocational training program for hearing impaired students. There are some great photos of these kids on the QI website!

Kath Slagal is putting the finishing touches on the Quota Legacy Scholarship to be awarded through Grand Rapids Community College. We are still determining the amount, and requirements for students to receive the grant. We hope to make this available yet this fiscal year.

We have received requests from DHHS for hearing equipment for three individuals totaling $610.75, and as the committee approves these, we will request a check.

We are planning to determine upcoming projects by hosting an informal and fun sign up session at the next meeting on February 18.  “Who Wants to be a Quillionaire” will solicit input from members regarding which projects they support and which projects they personally would like to implement.

Communications Update – February 2010


In Fall, 2009, members were invited on a “Treasure Hunt“.  If you’ll recall, the invitation was to “join us in a Treasure Hunt that will take you to the far reaches of…….The Blog!”

Several members participated and scored points by commenting on existing posts, by creating their own new posts, and by entering tags and categories on the posts they created.

Fabulous treasures await the winners ………at the February 18, 2010 Quota meeting.


Our thanks to Joyce for taking photographs at the January membership event!  You can see some of the photos in the Membership update for February 2010.


An email was sent to all Quotarians providing “Q-Star” Step by Step instructions for signing onto the blog.  Just as “On-Star” provides guidance to motorists, Q-Star can provide guidance in navigating our website.


Committee chairs were provided a schedule of the dates to post their updates to the Blog:  each committee should post something between the 5th and the 11th of the month.  (Since we’re just getting started on this, the deadline for February has been extended to the 15th.)

The purpose of these committee updates is to make sure that we post all club and committee activities to the Blog so that members can stay up to date on what’s going on.   These updates take the place of our newsletter.  Chairs should mark at least 2 categories:  the “newsletter” category, and their committee name category.  Also mark others that apply.

We hope you’re having fun, and if it’s not fun, holler, and we can provide some coaching!
