Next Speaker: 11/1/21 –   Please join us next week for a special presentation from Gary Powers, Jr., who will be talking about his father, Francis Gary Powers,  whose Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Lockheed U-2 spy plane was shot down while flying a reconnaissance mission in Soviet Union airspace, causing the 1960 U-2 incident. The book is “The Cold War and Legend of Francis Gary Powers”.

 

Greenspokes

A new member joining Las Vegas Southwest Rotary is called a Greenspoke, and is required to attend four (4) Greenspokes meetings and one board meeting. Upon completion of these requirements, they become full-fledged members who are entitled to propose new members or run for office.

Greenspokes meetings focus on the Rotary Avenues of Service:

Community Service
Vocational Service
Youth Exchange
International Service
Club Service

These meetings are often held at a club member’s home, and provide a good means for interaction between all Rotarians, spouses, and/or significant others.
