We are in our final quarter of this Rotary year, and we are finishing well. Most of our projects and programs are already scheduled for the rest of the year. This is the time to take personal inventory and close all the loops. Have you fulfilled all your Rotary commitments for the year? Let’s make sure all debts are paid to the Foundation and the Club for this final quarter. Please turn your attention to the upcoming District 5280 events listed below as we close out the year strong.  Plan to attend our remaining six in-person meetings at the Hilton and our two upcoming Zoom meetings. Invite your friends and business associates to join you in these final meetings of the year. We still have time to meet all our goals including adding new members.
