For a small club the Monroe Rotary Club accomplishes an amazing amount of things. They support the Monroe Food Pantry, Project Warmth, the Masuk Interact Club, Award Annual Service above Self Recognitions to outstanding community members, participate in District Managed Grants, Global Grants and recently donated $500 to the D7980 Oklahoma Relief Fund.
President Bill Florin and his board have public image and membership as top priorities this year. They recently ran a fellowship event aimed at attracting prospective members and have 3 good candidates in pipeline. On the public image front they are updating their web presence by converting to a new website platform, already have a very active Facebook page and they are generally successful in getting many stories about their club published in the local papers and on The Patch.
The Monroe Club is actively working on their 18th annual golf tournament which will be held on Sept 19th at The Whitney Farms Golf Club. They are looking for golfers and sponsors.
In November they will be running their annual Pancake Breakfast with the Masuk Interact Club to benefit Project Warmth.
To their credit they also have their leadership chain shored up and have already named Dan Keene as Prsident-elect.
The Monroe Rotary Club meets on Thursday mornings for breakfast at the Stone Barn on Shelton Ave, stop in and see them, they are a fun group.
