Tsalika Rich, program chair for the March 25 meeting, introduces the speaker, Washington Community Schools Supt. Willie Stone. During her introduction Tsalika announced she will be resigning from the club this summer, when she moves to Coralville.

Willie gave an update on school building infrastructure needs and the questionnaire the school district is presenting the community to get feedback on their four building/remodel proposals.

He is asking all Rotary members to go to their website and look at the MS Options for Middle School Buildings. There is a survey he would like everyone to take.

 Our meetings are suspended for awhile, but that doesn't mean Rotarians have stopped serving our community. Ray Poe was one of several club members who took time on Friday to ring the bell for donations to the Salvation Army at Washington Walmart.

Rotary meetings suspended due to COVID-19


Dear Rotarians,

Given the increased frequency of positive Covid cases and the new guidelines from the Governor we will suspend in person Rotary meetings through Dec 10th.  There will be no in person meeting on Thursday, Dec 10th.

If the current guidelines and rules are extended beyond Dec 10th we will keep meetings suspended until we are permitted to meet again safely.

We’ll work through this.  Please try to stay engaged in whatever safe way you can.  We’ll stay in communication via email or other technologies to do our best to further the goals of Rotary.

Thanks and be well,

Paul Horak, President
