Remember: Your BEST Attendance is required to stay an active member!

Regular attendance and engagement is essential to a strong and vibrant  Rotary Club.  Absence of any member deprives the club of the value of its diversified membership.   The contributions of all members to ongoing club meetings, projects, and the personal fellowship of each member makes for a club that is fun, rewarding and Makes A Difference.

Members are responsible to check your attendance record for accuracy and inclusion of any Make Ups.  Please e-mail make-ups to Secretary, Darcy Rourk,



Reminder: The Invocation/Thought of the Day is intended to be something that is inspirational.  Rotary’s guidelines are that we keep politics out of our meeting content.

Please do your part to prevent inbox suicides.  When replying to requests broadcast to the entire club, please reply to the person making the request only and ignore the temptation to “reply all”.
