The month of December saw many Rotarians out and about at service and social activities.  Did you register your TOUCHPOINTS (activities) on the Club website?   As a reminder one needs only to click on this TOUCHPOINT link or on the front page of our website and fill in the 4 question form.  No passwords or logins are needed.   If you want to be recognized for your involvement with Rotary, this is where you do so. 
DOUBLE CREDIT FOR ATTENDANCE & ENGAGEMENT

This week we honored those Rotarians who achieved either Perfect Attendance and/or 52 Touchpoints in the Rotary Year 2014-15.  At the weekly meeting 23 members received their special Rotary lapel pin indicating the number of years they have achieved perfect attendance, while three members received certificates for earning at least 52 Touchpoints.  This included recognition for Bill Blaine who received his pin for 40 years of perfect attendance.
