This Week's Program:
Rob Stenberg, Founder and CEO

Join Harbortown Rotary on Wednesday, March 2nd at 7:30am in the Holiday Inn Great Lakes Ballroom as we here from Rob Stenberg, Founder and CEO of Stenberg and Associates Sales and Leadership Academy.
Rob is an international speaker, trainer, and coach who focuses on executive professional development for those looking to grow their companies by growing their people. Rob is John Maxwell Certified and a Mike Bosworth Affiliate. He teaches leadership skills and storytelling as influence strategy to businesses.
Rob will present on "Leading in a Trust Recession". He believes society is in a leadership trust recession (politics, religion, business, education, family, etc.) and will speak about how to change the world and lead others. Anyone anywhere can make a difference. People cannot wait for change or hope someone else will step up. All need to be catalysts for change. Rob will touch on ways to lead and change the world.
Clubs Partner with Communities to Demonstrate the Good Rotary Can Do

Planting trees, conducting blood drives, screening people for diabetes: These are a few of the ways Rotary members have responded to President Shekhar Mehta’s challenge to think big this year by organizing a Rotary Day of Service.


"Rotary kindled the spark within me to look beyond myself and embrace humanity," Mehta told incoming district governors during the International Assembly in February 2021. "Service became a way of life for me." Believing that Rotary can do the same for others, members as well as nonmembers, Mehta asked clubs to plan a service day — an event where people in their communities could learn more about Rotary and see the impact of their local club, all while providing service to others.


As clubs were tackling these projects, Mehta asked them to work with at least one local business, community organization, or government or municipality; to include a community discussion about how clubs can continue to empower their community; to promote their events on social media; and to follow up with participants afterward, inviting them to get involved with a future Rotary project or attend a club meeting.


Mehta often says he subscribes to the philosophy that "Service is the rent I pay for the space I occupy on this earth."

COVID-19 Update

Safety and Health Considerations: When attending in-person Harbortown events, the club strongly encourages unvaccinated individuals to wear a mask at meetings or other gatherings. If for any reason, a member or guest would like to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status, we encourage them to do so. Thank you for your efforts to keep all of our Harbortown Rotarians safe!

Upcoming Program Duties
If you have an upcoming program duty (please check the upcoming duty roster), please be sure to secure a speaker and provide notice to Rick Oase ( or Stephanie Judd ( as soon as that speaker is confirmed. If you are unable to confirm a speaker, consider other program ideas like a Ted Talk, presenting yourself on a relevant topic or your business, or creating some excitement for a community organization you are passionate about. It is your program, so think about what is interesting and engaging to you and share it with others! 
If for some reason you are unable to switch duties with another member or you have simply exhausted all efforts to find a speaker, please notify Rick or Stephanie no later than 3 business days before the meeting (the Friday before the meeting your program is scheduled).
The Holiday Inn has dedicated a laptop for weekly Harbortown use. All presenters need to bring is a USB drive with the PowerPoint presentation (or whatever is wanted to be shown on the projector while speaking). Please share this information with your program's presenter.
Because Harbortown is asked by the Holiday Inn for RSVPs each week, Rob will RSVP each weekly presenter to ensure the presenter gets breakfast. If the presenter is bringing a guest, please let Rob know so he can RSVP the guest, as well. Questions? Please contact Rob Haglin (
