Club Updates

9/29/2009 Update!!!

Hello all you lovely friends Rotaractors out there!

Thank you so much to all of you that made it out to our fall kickoff meeting! Without all of you, Rotaract would definitely not be the same. On behalf of the Campus Rotaract Club’s Board of officers, we appreciate you all very much! Come to our SECOND GENERAL MEETING next Tuesday at 6:10pm in Wellman 006 (it’s a different room from the one at kickoff). See you there! =)

We will be sending out an informational newsletter every week to provide you with the announcements and important dates and events that are mentioned during the general meeting. So for those of you who won’t be able to make it to our general meetings due to class or other circumstances, no worries! All the information you need will be made available to you in the Rotaract newsletters, such as this one.

Please read through this e-mail (it is a bit heavy, but informative!) and contact us if you have any questions, concerns, or would like to learn about or sign up for any upcoming events.
