Greetings friends and Rotarians!
I am delighted to report that our District Grant application for matching funds to build Little Libraries has been approved!  A huge thank you to Som for putting together our grant application on a tight timeline, and thank you to all of our YP Week committee members for coordinating all of our upcoming event partnerships!

Membership Growth/Club Promotion (Chelsea/Lori) -
Chelsea and Lori will discuss ideas for member recruitment and visitor outreach and club promotion activities to help grow our club!
Grants & Projects (Som/Mac) -
Som will walk us through our approved Little Libraries grant application, and we will discuss ideas for other future grant and large project initiatives.
See you soon!
