Hello everyone,
 
I hope you all enjoyed our visioning sessions as much as I did.  We’ve got a lot to be proud of and some great ideas to start implementing in our club. The first step we are working on is to tackle some of our immediately actionable ideas - and if you’re in need of some motivation as we get started, check this out
 
This week we will welcome our new District 6250 Governor, Bill Hoel.  He’ll share some remarks with our club and will give us time to ask questions and converse.  This will be a great meeting for new guests to come and hear more about what Rotary is on a broader scale.
 
A look at what’s ahead:
  • Sign up for upcoming Lussier food pantry shifts here
  • Reserve your Fall Bucky bead shifts to raise money for Rotary Youth Exchange here
  • As we welcome our new exchange student, Eric, consider completing the background check process if you’d like to help bring him to events during his time with us
See you on Sunday!

2018-2019 President
