Met RI President
At the RI President Mark Maloney  Meet and Greet Reception on Saturday, it was a small crowd, Dean had the opportunity to get up close and personal.
Wonderful Meeting
When people get together, you never know what great things will happen. Rotary is a wonderful expression of people getting together to share and bond.
Here on Aug 14th, at a regular Rotary luncheon, we got to appreciate everyone's happy and sad dollar stories. And in those short personal glimpses, we get to feel a strong kinship with other club members. Thanks to Sgt. at Arms Cindy for engaging everyone to share their weekly updates.
Wonderful to meet Emily Cheng from Rotary Club of Taoyuan Siang Yang, Taiwan and see Christina and Robert attend their first luncheon as full fledged members.
Please pay attention to our website and to the weekly luncheon invitation for the latest updates for venue locations and speakers. Hilton has been busy and we have to change venue from time to time.
Congratulation to Jacqueline
