SATURDAY, 5/7 District BBQ, 1PM, Redwood Park Davis, CA
This BBQ will serve as a fundraiser for next year’s District Council and their projects. In the past, they have hosted various socials to subsidize Big West Conference costs for attendees. As such, we are asking for $10 from every attendee. Rotaractors and Rotarians will come together to eat, share stories, and play some board games and sports.
Keep your morning for the toughest projects. If you have class in the mornings, try to do homework as soon as you get home. It’ll help free up your evenings and avoid procrastination!
