Fellow Rotarians,
 
I watched our last meeting featuring Brittney Obermann from afar—Covid finally caught up with me. Special thanks to Past-President Stacey Lydon for leading the session and Michael Baker for his Game Time fun. The remote experience wasn’t too bad. I could hear everything and the energy in the room seemed high.
 
I’m still testing positive so will be remote again this week with Bob Fatch coming out of presidential retirement to take the gavel. We’ll be welcoming Mayor Randy Rowse to the podium for update from City Hall and to answer your questions. Please, please register if you haven’t already so we can get an accurate count for the caterer. Click here to RSVP.
 
We’re back at First Pres for a second turn at the venue this Friday, May 6—this time with a different lunch menu. Thanks to all who completed our venue survey. Click here to add your thoughts. The survey closes on May 9 with our Task Force to meet after to review results and discuss a recommendation to the full board. This project is almost a year in the making with the finish line close. I’m excited to take this final step forward with you.
 
I hope to be back in action soon. Thanks to all for your support.
 
In service,
 
Matt
