Lawrence Rotary Club
The Lawrence Rotary Club was chartered in 1917. Since that time its members have steadfastly served its local and international communities.  In this second century of Rotary, we are committed, as ever, to furthering the objectives of Rotary International and The Rotary Foundation, through Service Above Self.
Due to Federal, State, and Local bans on public gatherings, all Lawrence Rotary Club meetings and group activities through the end of April are cancelled. We will do all we can to help stop the spread of COVID-19 and will re-evaluate later in the month to see how to proceed with May.
If you have questions, please do not hesitate reaching out to anyone on the Rotary Board.
Our thanks to the following members for serving on the club's Board of Directors for the 2019-20 Rotary year: Brad Allen, Kay Brada, President-elect Kristin Eldridge, Jon Jamison, and Anna Stubblefield.
New members: Lucy Haines Dechairo, Shania Lamm.
Resignations: Ted Haggart, Heather Shull
Leaves of Absence: Charlie Bankart, through August 31, 2020.
Blue Cup money of $712.85 was collected in February for Polio Plus.
