Rotarians are needed to volunteer at Winterfest on Saturday, November 30th, 11am - 2pm.   Nine (9) volunteers from our 85 members are needed.  Volunteers during this 3 hour shift will help with the skating rink and the gift shop. If you are able to volunteer, please message President Elect Steve Rader, srader@shawnee.edu.

Since July 1, our club has offered support to several community organizations as a result of our two major fundraisers last year.  Arrangements are being made to get photos of representatives from each of these with President Samantha Comer so that we can publicize our efforts in the Daily Times, on our website and on Facebook.   Those recipients include:
