Rotary Holds Social Gathering

February 27, 2018
By: Stephen Kent

Rotary held an after-hours social at Tri-City Brewery on Tuesday evening, February 27, 2018. The Chamber of Commerce was holding it's 18th annual State of the Community luncheon and program at the Doubletree at the same time as the scheduled Rotary meeting and a number of members planned to attend that meeting.

Rotarians who attended the Chamber's luncheon and/or the Social will be given "make up(s)" for the regular meeting.

To receive the makeup (s), each member should list their name on the weekly attendance sheet next week. You may also send your makeup to


Andrea Hales introduced a new RED BADGE program for the club at the last meeting. New members are currently identified by a red "new member" sticker. Under the new program, those members will be asked to complete five tasks in their first year. When those have been done, the club will formally remove the red sticker at a Rotary meeting.

The Spring Community Grant Cycle is now open. Please pass the word to your friends and associates that might benefit from this program. Full details and applications are available on the club website.

Next summer's International Convention will be in Toronto, an easy trip for many of us. Be sure you sign up with her to attend this life-changing Rotary experience.
