Editarian Report for July 9, 2021
Rotarians gathered at Rotary Park in the sunshine on Friday, July 9th for hot dogs and conversation. The hot dogs were served up from Clint’s Hotdog Cart and the Club thoughtfully picked up the tab. Everyone in attendance was excited at the prospect of next week’s meeting – at the Lansing Center! Other conversations had members catching up on summer activities and experiences over that last year. Others chatted about how business has changed over the last year and what they expect going forward.
 
Although the crowd was a bit small due to the holiday week, everyone seemed to be having a good time and several stayed past the allotted time to continue their conversations.
