Greetings friends and Rotarians!
Thank you to everyone who participated in our recent Club Planning Meeting!  We generated a lot of ideas which should position us to thrive in our upcoming YP Week and other spring initiatives!  Feel to review our meeting notes in the links below.
Remember that there is no club meeting this Sunday due to the Super Bowl.  But we do have an upcoming Lussier Food Pantry event on Saturday and a Trivia Night at Freiburg next Tuesday!  I hope to see many of you there!
Enjoy your football weekends!
2017-2018 President
