Rotarians: We continue to monitor the news and guidelines on public meetings and have temporarily suspended in-person meetings.  In the meantime, we’re excited to announce several ways to stay connected to our community.


We are currently hosting virtual Rotary meetings. You will receive call in information in each weekly Club Announcement email on Friday mornings. Meetings will be conducted via Zoom from 12:30-1:15 p.m.  Zoom allows for meetings to be held by audio (call in and listen on your phone) and by video (use your phone or computer to watch and listen)
