Club Service Committees:

a.  Attendance Committee monitors the attendance of each member and contacts members who have missed too many meetings consecutively or have not made up meetings at other Rotary clubs to maintain a sufficient attendance average for membership.  The Attendance Committee also looks for ways to recognize members who have maintained perfect attendance, through special recognition and awards.

b.  Auditing committee annually compiles the financial records of the club and reports them to the Board of Directors.

c.  Club Bulletin Committee compiles the information which appears in “The Anchor," the club’s weekly bulletin, and ensures that the bulletin is published and delivered to the club members.      

d.  Fellowship Committee identifies ways to increase the fellowship within the club.

The Membership Committee has had an exciting year! In addition to inducting a several individuals into the club, we've inducted corporate members too, which makes for a welcome addition to our group.  We held a Membership Orientation in January, with another scheduled for July of this year, which included information about club committees, projects, and values.  We are looking forward to a productive and fun year ahead!
The Music Committee selected a music leader for each week who, in turn, selected a fun song to sing from the Rotary repertoire down to Broadway tunes.  A great time was had by all as a total of three piano players took turns weekly accompanying our singing.
