Club Meetings

The club meets every Thursday at 7:15 a.m. for approximately an hour.  The meetings include a song, the pledge, an invocation, club business, and a speaker.

 

Attendance

Per the Rotary International Constitution, which the club has adopted and follows, members are required to attend or make up at least 50% of your club's  meetings in each half of the year, attend at least 30% of your club's meetings in each half of the year, and a member may not miss or fail to make up four consecutive meetings.

 

Make Ups

A make up constitutes the following:

  • Attend a meeting of another club
  • Attend a meeting of an Interact Club
  • Attend a district or Rotary International meeting
  • Participate in club-sponsored events or service projects
  • Attend a club board or service committee meeting
  • Participate in an E-Club meeting for at least 30 minutes

It is the member's responsibility to notify the Club Secretary of any make ups.  Members will be given a credit for their meal for any make up from another Rotary Club.
