Leap Into Rotary Social at the Chamber is an event to share the awesomeness of Rotary with others!

Please be sure to join us at the Chamber of Commerce on Thursday February 20 for a special Leap into Rotary event to share the joy of Rotary with prospective members. If you've brought a guest this year please invite them to attend and visit with our membership and Rotary Board members to hear more about Rotary! The event will be from 5:30 to 7:30 on Thursday so there will not be a lunch meeting that day. Did you know only 10% of Rotarians ever sponsor a member? Let's increase that number!!!

Hope to see you there!!!

Kim Walden
