This Year's Rotary Post Prom will be on Saturday May 19th. Volunteers are needed for many tasks before, during and after the event. Please contact Kelli Stein if you are able to help out. Post Prom is a Rotary tradition and needs the entire club to get behind it.

 This week, Friday April 20th, our meeting will be at Racine Country Club at 7:00 AM. Our speaker will be Claude Lois from the Village of Mt. Pleasant. He will be speaking about Foxconn and their plans and progress. Claude is a guest of Laura Degroot.

Duty roster through June 22nd, 2018 is now posted on the club's 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 newsletter. If you have any difficulty finding a speaker please attempt to reach out to other club members for assistance and let Patrick Booth or Tom Leuenberger know what the program will be.
