This past weekend was the Rotary District 5650 District Conference. Our club was represented by President Martha Goedert, Immediate Past President Robert Rapp, and Yolanda Hoffman. The conference was the final activity of Rotary Year 2020-2021, led by District Governor Roxy Orr. Our club received recognition: Recognition for Excellence in Membership, Expanding Our Reach. This relates to our impressive membership growth and the innovative idea of opening a new virtual membership.
