ROTARY around town—holiday schedules
In case you were thinking about doing a meeting make-up around the holidays, please be sure that club is actually meeting that day. (Downtown and Marion-East will not meet the week of Christmas or New Year’s Day.)
It was awesome to see so many members at our meeting, and it is really awesome that we have such an amazing library!
Have a great weekend, and we’ll see you Wednesday!
