Incoming President's Address and Goals for 23-24
Beginning his ninth year in the Noon Rotary Club of Wisconsin Rapids, Ron was excited to share his goals and vision for 2023-24. 
With the mission to "Create Hope in the World" during this Rotary year, we will explore ways to grow our membership, connect more with area youth through the establishment of an Interact club at Lincoln High School, and continue to our long-established tradition of service to the Wisconsin Rapids community.
Spread The Benefits of Rotary
As our club has grown smaller, our personal connections with those in the club have grown.  Now is the time to expand our connections and membership.  One of the goals of this year is to reverse our membership slide and to gradually expand.  We are looking for those individuals in our community to value "Service Above Self."  If you would like to serve on our membership growth committee, please let Ron know.
Volunteers Needed
We need at least four individuals to assist with parking for the Touch-A-Truck event on Saturday, July 29th from 9:30 p.m. to about Noon.  Please let us know at the meeting on Monday if you can assist or sign up via the email sent last week.
