Penny Randell

Our speaker is new member and author Penny Randell. She will discuss her experiences in Africa.
From an early age, Penny Randell has always enjoyed a good story, whether telling it herself or conducting an interview. Her award-winning 2005 4-part radio series, The War in Northern Uganda was the result of a visit to the internationally displaced persons (IDP) camps near Gulu and the culmination of years of living in Kampala as a cultural researcher, radio personality and journalist and traveling throughout eastern, central and southern Africa with her son Peyton.
Her recounting of their African exploits never fails to elicit an incredulous response, usually accompanied by “You’ve got a big story!” or words to that effect. Such responses inspired the compilation of adventures into Becoming African - The First 3 Years.
Don’t forget to plan on helping load crutches on May 11th at 10AM at 36080 Smith Rd. in Aurora. Perhaps we can car-pool. This is our day of service project. Dave needs our help.
Wed at 5 the golf committee will meet. We need to fill the following positions. If you are interested, just show up at 5.
50/50 raffle chair. Sell 160 $20 raffle tickets and administer drawing in accordance with state raffle requirements (Mike Lanier is a resource concerning the requirements)
Sponsor advocate. Personally greet Smith family and other VIPs on tournament day.   Working with our inventory of sponsor signs, ensure that all sponsors have appropriately sized signs. Coordinate the production of new signs for new sponsors and to replace any haggard signs. On tournament day, oversee the placement of signs to ensure they are appropriately spread around all 18 holes and that special placement signs go as planned. After the tournament, recruit Rotary plaque distribution volunteers to hand deliver participation plaques.
Goody bags and shirt distribution coordinator. Secure 116 goodie bags and acquire candy, water bottles, golf balls and other items to go in each bag. Coordinate Rotary volunteers to prepare the bags right before the tournament. Load into carts on tournament day. Develop a plan to oversee the pickup of shirts on tournament day.
Tournament day people manager.
co-develop with the tournament chair a manpower plan for tournament day.  Recruit volunteers to fill the plan. Develop training for each position and ensure that all volunteers are fully trained.
Thanks to those who came to honor our friend and fellow-Rotarian Larry Madden. He will be missed.
