Committee Meetings, June 15, 2015

No Meetings
As we approach the new Rotary year, starting July 1, each Rotarian is encouraged to join a Club committee.  Watch for a committee brochure to tell you about each group and contact information for their leadership.  A hand out sheet will be available over the next several weeks to sign up for these committees to help you to pursue your interests.  Sign up sheets can be turned in on Monday's or to the office.     
in helping at a lunch meeting we are always in need of those willing to check in members/guests, announce visitors and guests and provide invocations.  Contact Scott at the office if you'd like to help!
On June 6, 2015 a small but mighty band of warriors took on the Columbus Rotary Obstacle Course in the inaugural Crawl. Climb.
