President's Message
President's Remarks
President Karen Blewett  welcomed everyone to the third meeting of the 2017-2018 Rotary year held in our own Rotary Park.
Rotary Park was created in 1932 and once was home to a swimming pool that was used by many in attendance. We did sponsor a pool previous to this one in 7 persons creek during the period 1922 to 1926. This raea was used for swimming, summer recreation and civic events. In it's first year it was called "Beaver Dam".
