Dues Invoices for July-December 2016
The dues (and prepaid lunches) invoices for July-December 2016, were emailed to all members the first week of May. Please note the due date is TOMORROW June 15, 2016. 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 invoice 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

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.
