We will be start meeting Tuesdays at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, 1412 Illinois. 11:30AM to 1:00PM. Murrays will be catering the meals for the time being. They will be set up to start serving at 11:30. There is parking in the rear of the church on Ohio Street along with parking on the west side of the church on Illinois Street. The rear parking and entrance is closer to the room where we will hold the meetings.
We will continue to look and try other options but for now this is our best one.
If anyone would like to suggest something, feel free to contact one of the  Board members and we will research it.
Things to look for:
  • Room size big enough to hold 50 members and visitors comfortably.
  • Cost of the room
  • Cost of a meal if they serves food
  • Adequate parking and ease of access to the facility for all members
  • Is there a place to keep some of our set up materials (badge box, banners and stands, American Flag)
See you Tuesday.
Just a reminder that we will be meeting at the MRT for our Tuesday meeting. Jason's Deli will be providing lunch. We will be having sandwiches with chips and cookies. Tea will be provided along with bottle water. Please try and be there between 11:30 and noon so that we can eat then tour the facility with James Durbin.
The paper is at 201 E. Illinois. Just go to in the front door and they will direct you to the conference room upstairs.
It's always fun to see a new member inducted into Midland West Rotary.

The 1989 Council on Legislation vote to admit women into Rotary clubs worldwide remains a watershed moment in the history of Rotary.

"My fellow delegates, I would like to remind you that the world of 1989 is very different to the world of 1905. I sincerely believe that Rotary has to adapt itself to a changing world," said Frank J. Devlyn, who would go on to become RI president in 2000-01. 

The vote followed the decades-long efforts of men and women from all over the Rotary world to allow for the admission of women into Rotary clubs, and several close votes at previous Council meetings.

The response to the decision was overwhelming: By June 1990, the number of female Rotarians had skyrocketed to over 20,000. By 2010, the number of women was approaching 200,000.
