Message From The President
We moved the “Committee Spotlight” feature to the front of this Wheel in recognition of the amazing work that committee has done this past year. When we set our club goals for the 2020-2021 Rotary year in May of 2020, we set a membership goal of not losing more members than we could add. As the virus played havoc with us this past year, there were many times when that club goal seemed overly optimistic, but not to our membership committee. Also, not to our existing members who hung in there and not to our newest members who joined us during a time when they could have been excused for waiting on the sidelines. Of all the club committees and projects that are to be congratulated for adapting and persevering this past year, none deserve more of our thanks than our membership committee.
