Rotary family. He also invited them to visit our Thursday meeting to celebrate 40 years of Rotaract service and the chartering of this newest Rotaract Club.
Special thanks to Rotaract Co-Chairs Jim Henderson and Carol Duris who have, over the past three years, supported Rotaract and worked toward the charter of this club. They are indeed models of Service Above Self!

Cougars vs Huskies Clearly Cougars have more spirit! We have an awesome Cougar- themed basket, valued at $300 for our auction, but alas, NO Husky-themed basket! Husky Fans - are you going to make it that easy for the Cougs??? Consider this a challenge! We'd like to see some equal representation!
