The Community Service team met this morning. It is with a heavy heart to announce that Committee Chair Kate Jendral is stepping down from her position. Kate has done a great job chairing the committee, however she has started nursing school and the demands of school, work, CPR etc. and Rotary are taking it's toll.  We will miss you Kate and appreciate all the work you have done for Rotary and the community. We look forward to you visiting us next year and  popping in a meeting when you are able to.  Thank you TJ Price and Todd Nemura for participating today.
May 18 we are having a fellowship at the Willowtree at 5pm. Please invite your friends, neighbors, co-workers etc so we can share what Rotary is all about.
