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.
