Jack Coderre told us that “Kairos,” from the Greek, means a ‘special moment’ and he described the many special moments offered by the Kairos Christian Ministry in its work among men in prison. Kairos is a “volunteer Christian Ministry,” Jack said, dedicated to helping men in prison in terms of love, hope, friendship, and support.
 
At our meeting this last week, Kathy Siler, Chair, Incorporation Steering Committee, The Landings, gave us an update regarding the proposed incorporation of Skidaway Island as a city in Chatham County. Overall, at the present time, the feeling on the part of committee members and of many of the Landings residents is that it should become a city.  There are many doubts, questions, “what ifs”, and perhaps the greatest difficulty, uncertainty. There is uncertainty about finances, flood insurance, relationships with the county and the other entities on the island (Modena, South Harbor, The Marshes, etc.), ordinances, the necessity for our own employees, police, judiciary, and the responsibility and money that these services imply.
 
 
Herb Hubbard is the Chaplain of the Savannah YMCA organization. A native of Savannah and a graduate of its high school system, a pastor in Savannah and elsewhere, Herb told us how delighted he is to be back here. And what does he do?  A myriad of things as a leader of the local YMCAs.  He works with the Red Cross, Goodwill, Democrats and Republicans, FEMA, the Salvation Army, and faces issues with kids, work readiness, evacuations, medical problems, fund raising and legal issues.  To put his work in perspective, Herb gave us a bit of background information for the YMCA.
 
 
The Cliff Dochterman Award has been awarded this year for the first time.  It recognizes an individual Rotarian who acts as a role model and renders distinguished and dedicated service to Scouting through active service and leadership.  Paul Meyer easily qualified for this award.
 
 
If you missed a meeting, you can make it up by attending a meeting at another Rotary Club or... getting credit for an On-Line Make-up. The link for an On-Line make-up is on the club web site under Club Links (E-Club Make Ups).

Once you complete the on-line make-up, print the confirmation page and bring it to the next meeting. The online-make-up takes about 10-15 minutes, reading an interesting article related to Rotary.

This will help our club achieve an excellent attendance record.
