August 20, 2020 Meeting Highlights
President John DeBettignies welcomed members back for another outdoor, in-person meeting at the Veteran’s Park Amphitheater. There were a lot of Happy Dollars mostly due to the chance to be outside enjoying each other’s company on a beautiful day!
John relayed information about the continued Richfield Park Tour plan for fall Rotary meetings. There were quite a few ideas for our fall service projects including more options for the Roosevelt Dog Park, Morris Nilsen’s Trunk or Treat, and CU Forward Day. (Read more)

Upcoming Meetings

With limited time before weather changes, club officers have decided to hold club meetings outdoors, with contingencies in case of inclement weather.  Calling it a “Richfield Community Tour,” President John stated, “In these coming outdoor meetings, we are going to visit different parts of Richfield.”  John will announce the locations as soon as arrangements are made with the City of Richfield.   An outline of fall meetings and activities appears below.
