Getting back to Rotary

If you haven't been back to Rotary in a while, we would love to have you as an active member again. Your presence and participation adds to the diversity and richness of our club meetings and activities. If you have just gotten out of the habit on Tuesday's at Noon, we hope you can use this summer to get back in the habit. If you have other concerns, we understand, but please know you are missed. If you would like to talk about any concerns or reservations you have, please give club President H.R. Cook a shout, or incoming President Scott Goins.
Thank you!
