Volunteer Opportunities at Noon Meetings
It takes a team effort to have successful meetings and we appreciate the hard work of all Club members. To keep the success going without a full-service caterer and without storage at the Lincoln Center, we have some additional challenges for club members. We have a diverse mix of opportunities: greeting members; photography; room setup and take down; singing and more. Read More...

Our celebration at the Gardens at Spring Creek is on August 3rd and we are encouraging members to bring spouses/partners and guests. Please RSVP now or if you have already signed up, please add your guests. It is going to be a great event 😊
This week, on Wednesday, we have two great speakers, Stacey Baumgarn at noon on zoom, and Carol Bennis in the evening at Lirano Wine Bar. Hope to see you at one or both meetings.
Our first Board meeting of the Rotary year was this week. Along with great discussions on many topics, the Board discussed the noon meeting calendar for October through December.  Coming up on August 11th a short assembly of attending members before the noon program and a follow-up member survey will occur; thank you in advance for your participation. The Board is interested in hearing from members about in-person meeting frequency at lunch, weekly or twice monthly at that time.  The Board will also consider how many meetings our volunteers can support given the challenging catering situation. Please review the volunteer opportunities to see where you can help.
