I've been honored to do the event planning for two membership happy hour events for the Rotary Club of East Colorado Springs this year. Their intent was to host an event for guests who have not been involved in Rotary before. These guests were specially invited by the members and the gathering took place at a beautiful home owned by one of the Rotary club members. The guests got to learn more about what Rotary is, the projects this club works on, and of course, network with the members.
As the event planner, I worked through logistics and items needed, picked out the food for catering, organized those involved with to do lists and day-of reminders, went shopping for specific items, and assisted with set up and clean up. Lastly, I was there to greet everyone who walked in and make them feel welcomed as soon as they arrived.
These special events have created better community relationships and have resulted in some new members joining the Rotary Club of East Colorado Springs.
If you have an event or gathering that you need some extra help with, please contact me.
