With regard to Covid, our expectation is that Rotarians will do the right things; be fully vaccinated, wear masks when not seated and eating, don’t crowd tables, be respectful of color coded comfort level stickers.  If the situation changes we will do what is necessary to have an event AND keep everyone safe.

                    Friday afternoon golf!                 Saturday morning 5k walk/run!

Inspiring and informative keynote speakers

Breakout sessions about environmental issues and how Rotary is involved, sessions about Rotary, and some session just for fun! More details will be posted.
