    Communication for the Rotary Club of Woodstock consists of two bulletins; The Monthly Newsletter and This Week in Rotary.
    The Newsletter is distributed each month, for the following month, by pmail to club members, District Governor, and the Area Governor for Area Two and is uploaded to the Woodstock Club Bulletin file in DACdb. It is provided in print form for members and available at the sign-in table at every club meeting.
    Each month the Newsletter contains the following:
    • The Rotary motto of Service Above Self
    • A list of current club officers
    • Member service anniversaries, birthdays, and wedding anniversaries
    • Upcoming programs for the following month
    • Club news and information

    • List of members and spouses with contact information and classification
    • The Rotary Song – our club loves to sing

    This Week in Rotary is sent by pmail to all members each weekend prior to our weekly meeting and contains the following:
    • Program information for this week and the next
    • Club anniversaries, birthdays, and wedding anniversaries
    • Program hosts for the following month
    • Club news and upcoming events
    • A member care section
    • Reminders for proposing new members, web resources, and DACdb information
    • Meeting locations for club in and beyond our Area
  • Participation of Club Members: 
    The Newsletter and This Week in Rotary are both produced by our Club Communications Officer, Mr. Bill Pence, who serves as Editor. Club officers, committee chairs, and club members may submit articles and other information for publication, some taken from other Rotary Newsletters, informing our club of upcoming activities and events. Information from Club President, Program Committee Chair, Club Administration Chair, Interact, and Public Relations Committee are regular sources. Participation Level = 8%. Committee Chairs, Program Hosts, Activity Leaders, and other submit information on an as needed basis. Participation Level = 60%.
  • Resulting Benefits: 
    Both the Newsletter and This Week in Rotary serve as valuable resources for our entire club. Members are kept informed about upcoming activities, events, and resources about Rotary and fellow Rotarians. They serve as a “How To” guide to navigate DACdb and a way to stay in touch with RI initiatives and District 7570 programs beyond our local club. The bulletins are informative, instructive, and provide one way in which we can measure the overall health of our Club. Our members enjoy reading both the Newsletter and This Week in Rotary as a way to stay in contact with fellow Rotarians and learn more about Rotary and our Club.
