With the change that the club has seen in the last year and a half, including spending an entire Rotary year in virtual meetings due to the pandemic, new club President Nelson Holmberg, reported the club's state is "solid" at the club board meeting today.
While membership has remained stable in the mid-20s since the pandemic shut down in-person interaction in March 2020, Holmberg reported the club's finances are in very good shape, with more than $20,000 in the bank.
Membership is again growing, with two new members already having been inducted this Rotary year, and more in the pipeline. Retention will also be a focus for the remainder of this Rotary year.
"I'm enthusiastic about the state of the club at this point," Holmberg said. "We're in really great shape, and it's visible within the membership. Now that we're meeting in person again, it's exciting to see people coming back and having a really great time serving the community, enjoying time with fellow Rotarians and generally feeling like Rotary again."
The board also agreed that Round Table Pizza in Salmon Creek would be the club's primary meeting location through the end of the current Rotary year, with the thought that having that decision made providing predictability and stability for the members.
