Rotary Roadshow ~ Tri-State Warbird Museum Our next Rotary Roadshow will be Thursday, May 26, 2016, where we travel to the Tri-State Warbird Museum! This museum was formed in 2003 with a commitment to preserve the aircraft of World War II, educate their visitors on America's role in WWII, and to honor the veterans who fought and those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Since that time over 1.5 million people have toured the facility and/or seen their restored aircraft gracing the skies at airshows around the country! Come join us as we visit the museum and view their nine significant WWII aircraft. We'll have personal tours of the facility! Your RSVP includes a one-year membership to the museum and a box lunch of your choice. There is no additional charge for members on the pre-paid lunch plan to attend. The cost is $21.00 for all others to attend. Please click this link to sign-up and make your box lunch choice: Tri-State Warbird Museum RSVP.

New Meeting Parking! The Rotary office has negotiated with the 84.51 parking garage for $3.00 parking for our Thursday meetings, after the Tower Place Garage is closed at the end of this month. The garage has unmanned exits so there will be a new process to pay for your parking using chaser tickets. These $3.00 chaser tickets can be picked up at meeting check-in each week. NOTE: These tickets are monitored and can ONLY be used on Thursdays! A video has been created demonstrating the new process and is available on our website, Facebrook Group page or by clicking HERE.
Dues Invoices for July-December 2016 The dues (and prepaid lunches) invoices for July-December 2016, are being emailed to all members this week. Please note the due date of June 15, 2016, on your invoice. While we have been able to be somewhat flexible in accepting late payments in the past, unfortunately because of changes in Rotary International's billing process, this must be a FIRM deadline. Rotary International now automatically charges our club for members on our roster on June 30, 2016, with no exceptions so we must now complete our billing much earlier than in the past. If you are unable to pay your invoce by June 15, 2016, please contact the Rotary Office or you will automatically be assessed the $35.00 late fee. Why not pay your dues online today? Just click this secure online payment link to conveniently pay your invoice:PAY MY DUES.If you did not receive your invoice, or have any questions on your invoice, please contact Kristy in the Rotary Office at 513-421-1080 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Golden Days Inserts The latest Golden Days binder insert, Richard La Jeunesse (2014-2015) is available for pick-up, if you haven't gotten yours already. They will be available at the meetings, or can be mailed to you, if you contact Kristy in the Rotary office at 513-421-1080 or email@example.com.
