Ideas and Opportunities 

by Charlie Price
As the seasons shift, now is an ideal time to take stock of where we spend our time and energy. Rotary members are fortunate to have access to knowledge and experiences that inform our life and work. Meeting new people, hearing from expert speakers and understanding important issues in our community inform our perspectives.

Rotary enhances our lives as Oklahomans who are better equipped to serve in our community, our state and beyond. Acting locally to effect change happens through the efforts of concerned leaders and conscientious volunteers. Understanding which causes need our attention and financial support makes for a better society, one Rotarian at a time

Rotary Dues Increase - Jan. 1, 2023 - A Message from President Wes

Fellow Rotarians,

At the Sept. 27 lunch meeting, we shared some news about a conversation that began over two years ago. Prior to the pandemic, it was clear to our administration committee, budget committee, and board of officers and directors that a dues increase would be necessary for the club to maintain a balanced budget. With the arrival of the pandemic, we were able to delay that conversation. As we’ve seen a return to normal club operations, meetings, and service, we’ve also seen an increase in almost every expense of the club due to inflation and we were forced to revisit the conversation. At the recommendation of our administration and budget committees, the 2021-2022 board of officers and directors approved a dues increase of $15 per quarter, or $5 a month, effective January 1, 2023.
