This week, Friday June 23rd, our meeting will be at Racine Country Club at 7:00 AM. 


For this weeks Rotary Trivia question: The downtown club hosted two contests where speed was involved, what were these two contests?


Please note that the club duty roster through January 5th, 2018 is now posted on the clubs website. Take a look and make sure you are prepared for your duty! The next 7 weeks of this schedule are always at the end of this newsletter (RYFNL).




Rotarians, please post things to these sites, and when doing so to "hash tag" #RACINEROTARY.  This will connect all of our posts to each other.





 If you have speaker duty please let me know two weeks in advance who your speaker is or what your program is so I can get the info to the newspaper. If you have any difficulty finding a speaker please let Patrick Booth or Ashley Staeck know and they will assist you.
