RI President Jennifer Jones imagines a Rotary where members act to make their dreams become reality and they make the most of their club experiences. She urges members to engage more with each other and use these connections to build partnerships that change the world.

 
One of the club's Community Service Project this year was to re-roof the Twin Lakes Food Bank.  The club partnered with Straight Line Construction to lay down the shingles on Saturday, September 17.  Prior to the 17th, club members worked on the roof replacing dry rot and doing other repairs.  Here are photos of the project on the 17th.
