PAUR Club Assembly

At this Mid-Year Meeting our emphasis is on member engagement for completion of this year’s Rotary journey. It has continued to be a strange Rotary year so far, meeting both in person and remotely, and there is no reason to think it will change over the last six months.

Important election for our President Elect-Nominee for Rotary year 2023-2024. Larry Christenson is the only known candidate, (and an excellent choice by our past presidents committee), and is the odds on favorite to win.
