We had several speakers today for our club’s open house.  Amy, from the District, spoke on her involvement in Rotary.  She spoke of her international service trips in Honduras and the Philippines.  She also spoke of the friendships she has made at her club and at the District Level. 
PP Don M. spoke on what it is like at the local level.  Don spoke of many (too numerous to mention them all) of the events our club participates in and how being a member allows you to work with other likeminded Rotarians to get things done.
P Lori M. wrapped up the presentation with a listing of all of groups that the club serves including RYLA, Little League, Police, Fire and the Library to name a few. 
Prospective members were asked to contact PP Dom S. if they wanted more information.

Next Meeting March 5, 2018.
