We invite you to join us via Zoom by either video conferencing or the dial in option.  Thank you for your understanding and patience during these uncertain times.

Rotary Auction Update

After lots of thought and discussion we decided that it would be prudent to postpone the auction this year due to the COVID 19 Virus impact on our national and local communities.  We are looking at  September 18, 2020 as our new date.  We are hopeful that this will give our community the recovery time and something to look forward to in the future. 
 
I want to thank everyone for their patience, understanding and support for the auction and our rotary club.  Please stay safe and keep well during these interesting times.  
 
All the best.
