Meal Train for Marsha
Fellow Rotarian Marsha Minervini is home recovering from surgery. She is doing great, but we'd like to help take good care of her during this time. If you would like to bring a meal you can sign up for a timeslot here. Please note the dietary restrictions on the website of dairy and spicy foods.
We wish you a speedy and safe recovery Marsha!
PR Committee Volunteers
The PR committee is looking for a few more people to join their committee to help with upcoming projects such as writing a short summary of the meeting speaker's presentation to share. The time commitment is very minimal (like an hour every month) especially if more people volunteer. We are working to become more active on social media as well as spreading the word about Rotary in the community in different ways. If you would like to volunteer you can reach out to Jon Randles at or Madison Ford at

Annual Fundraiser Sign-Up Sheet 
The fundraiser committee has narrowed down some areas of focus to help get A Taste of Traverse off the ground and we need your help! The sign-up sheets were on the tables at the last meeting and will be out again on the 13th, but you can also sign up here. There are big jobs and little jobs so you can give whatever time you are able, but this fundraiser needs mass support to be successful, so let's do it! If you have any questions please contact Laurie Lapp at
The next meeting of the fundraiser committee will be Wednesday, February 14th at 5:30pm. 
Rotary Charities Grant Reviewing
Your dedication to service can make a significant impact on your community! Consider volunteering to review a grant with Rotary Charities and contribute to initiatives that build thriving communities. Taking place in April and May, the time commitment is only about 2-3 hours in total, including reading the assigned application and review summary and participating in a meeting with the review team and applicant via Zoom. Express your interest by reaching out to Miriam Owsle at
