To ensure that the club newsletter and other Clubrunner emails are successfully delivered to your email inbox, add the following email address and domain name to your email's contact list/safe senders/whitelist:


What is a whitelist and why is this needed?

Email spam filters often include the ability to "whitelist" certain sender IP addresses, email addresses or domain names to protect their email from being rejected or sent to a junk mail folder.   

From Wickipedia:  A whitelist is (1) a list of email addresses that a mail server or email client program is configured to accept as valid, incoming mail. Also called a "safe senders list," only messages from addresses on the list are allowed, and all the rest are discarded.   (2) A list of valid domain names that a mail server is configured to accept. All mail from users with that domain are allowed. 


According to internet:  Gmail offers an option to add specific addresses or domains as "safe" so they aren't automatically marked as spam, known as a "Whitelist." Your Whitelists must be managed and set by you. If you want to accept all email sent from a specific address, follow these instructions:

  1. Log in to your Gmail
  2. Click the gear icon in the top-right, and select Settings.
  3. Click the Filters and Blocked Addresses tab. 
  4. Click Create at New Filter. 
  5. In the pop-up window, in the From field enter the clubrunner email addresses listed above separated by OR. example OR
  6. Click Create filter.
  7. Check "Never send it to Spam".
  8. Click Create filter
The Membership Committee needs new Rotary members (especially people who have joined Rotary in the last 2 - 3 years) to join the Committee to help us meet our challenges in attracting and retaining new members.  The Committee meets as needed to discuss approaches in how we can add, and involve, new members. The Summit Rotary Club is now below 100 members, and we need to recruit new folks to keep our club vibrant and involved in the community!

A Prospective Member should attend 3 zoom meetings before turning in his/her application, sponsor form, a short bio and $50 application fee to the Membership Chairman, Mike Connolly, or to any one on the Membership Committee.  The application will be presented to the Membership Committee for approval.  Once approved, the applicant's bio will be posted in our bulletin for 3 weeks.  If there are no questions about the Prospective Member, the induction will be scheduled. Two new categories of Membership have recently been approved – a Family Membership and a Corporate Membership.  Please contact an individual on the Membership Committee for details on these new types of Membership.

Membership Committee Members are: Chairman - David Guignard, Julianne Gilchrist, Sandy Mortensen, Ann Clement, Susan Juergensmeier, Stephanie Katz, David "Woody" Woodland.

When you do business with a Corporate Partner, thank them for being a Rotary Sponsor!
