Secretary Message
Please bear with me on the bulletin.  This is my first attempt creating this document and it has been trial and error.  The bulletin will be a monthly document reviewing what has occurred at the meetings.  I am excited about being your secretary and  I have great shoes to fill as I start this new Rotary adventure.
I will entertain all suggestions to make this bulletin something you what to read.
