What will the first meeting be like?
We meet at Mattito's Tex-Mex Restaurant in the first floor meeting room. There will be a registration table and then lunch can be ordered from Mattito's amazing wait staff.  Around noon we call the meeting to order and have a few announcements before our meeting program.
 
Who's presenting? 
Rotary meetings usually contain a program consisting of a speaker and usually that is an external speaker to the club.
 
Do I need to bring anything?
Nope.
 
What should a newcomer expect?
You will be welcomed at our check in table and we will ask you to sign in on the visitors sign in.  At the beginning of the meeting, we read off a list of our visitors and visiting Rotarians from other clubs.  We will spend a few minutes on club business and then will have a program for about 25 minutes.

  • Dues each quarter are $120
