Semi-Annual Dues are Due!
Dues bills for the first half of the 2022-2023 Rotary year have been sent out via email by our Treasurer.  If you haven’t paid already, please pay online, mail your check to our PO Box, or bring your check to our next meeting.  Our goal is to collect all dues for each half of the year prior to the beginning of that half, since membership numbers must be reconciled by June 30th and December 31st each year.
If you did not receive your bill, have a question or would like another notice, please contact our Treasurer Karen Arnold 
HYBRID Meetings Will Continue
We will continue to meet each week in person, with a Zoom option. To help prevent the meeting link from being hijacked by bad actors, it will be sent out to our mailing list a day or two before each such meeting. The link will not be included in this newsletter or on our website for this security reason, as our Newsletters are publicly available on our website.
Until further notice, this link remains the same.  Please consider saving it in your browser or in your calendar so you will quickly have access to it.
