Rotarian Donates Book Royalties to Literacy Program!
 Dear Rotarians,
I have a super cool opportunity for the District specifically and the Rotary Foundation as a whole. We have a dynamite new Rotarian in our Club who is an accomplished sports writer and novelist. Marjorie Lewis has recently published her Historical Novel “When the Men Were Gone” which is centered around the first female football coach in the state of Texas! The book is phenomenal!
Ms. Lewis stated, "Between January 14-20, for every book sold (Amazon, Barnes & Noble, independent book sellers, Costco), I will donate every cent of my per-book royalty (it must be a book because Kindle sales are not recorded), which is roughly $1."
We'll need Rotarians to also get the support of their connections outside of Rotary. Funds donated will benefit the Rotary Literacy Program.
Additionally, Ms. Lewis will be featured at a book signing at the Southlake Barnes and Noble on Saturday, January 26th from 1-3 pm and will be interviewed by Scott Murray, an Emmy Award winning sports journalist. Stop by and show your fellow Rotarian your support! The day of the event, we'll have a drawing for a $200 gift card to Barnes & Noble. Each copy of When the Men Were Gone sold that day at Barnes & Noble will be good for one entry into the drawing. If someone buys two books, they get two entries, and so forth. Should be fun!
Yours in service,
Arlin Gold
Southlake Rotary President
Business Development Officer

Dear Rotary Leaders:

This is just a reminder to confirm your club member and officer information in Rotary’s database by 1 January. We’ll use this information to generate your club invoice. It’s important that your club’s member information is up-to-date, because Rotary can’t change the club invoice after it’s been generated or accept membership updates with your payment.         

As a club officer, you can ensure that your club invoice will be correct by checking the accuracy of the information in Rotary’s database.

If you use My Rotary to report your club’s information to Rotary:

Sign in to My Rotary and choose Manage, then Club & District Administration, Club Administration, and Club & Member Data.

If you use a Rotary-approved club management system to report your club’s information to Rotary:  

Sign in to your club, district, or country database. Verify that the information in it is correct or make changes as needed. Your club invoice is generated based on the membership information recorded in Rotary’s database, not the information in your club’s own database, so it’s important to make sure Rotary has the latest information. After you update your database, please sign in to My Rotary to verify that the updates have been transmitted correctly.  Note that it might take up to 24 hours for updates to be reflected in My Rotary. Sign in to My Rotary and choose Manage, then Club & District Administration, Club Administration, and Club & Member Data to see the information in Rotary’s Records.

For all clubs:
Report all new or terminated members and 2018-19 club officers no later than 1 January.
  • Members with admission dates of 1 January or before will be counted for the January 2019 club invoice.
  • Members with termination dates of 1 January or before will not be counted for the January 2019 club invoice.
If you can’t update your member information online, you can submit the Member Data Form in one of three ways:
  • Scan and email it to
  • Fax it to +1-847-556-2207
  • Mail it to your local Rotary office or fiscal agent early enough that it will arrive by 1 January

For more information about your club invoice, including how-to guidelines and answers to frequently asked questions, go to My Rotary’s Club Administration pages. For help with membership questions, contact
