Willamette Rotaract is a Rotary-based service club for professionals in their 20′s. Members from all over the Portland Metro area ranging in wide variety of vocations come together in spirit of service to better our members, our communities, and the world.
Join us this week for a presentation from our most recent volunteer project, Penny Beckwith from the Columbia River Slough. Last weekend we helped plant trees and pull ivy, so this week will we learn more about this great organization and their work.
Come spend Valentine's day morning with us! We are cleaning up the area around Johnson Lake on Stewardship Saturday with the Columbia Slough Watershed Council, the guest speakers at our next meeting. From 9am to noon we will be helping to remove invasive species of plants, pick up garbage, and maintain walking trails at Johnson Lake.
Please note that the 10 person limit has been removed, so the more people who come the better! There will be sings for the "Columbia Slough Event" and a designated parking area. It is recommended you bring outdoor clothes, sturdy shoes, a water bottle, and reusable mug. Tools, gloves, and snacks will be provided.
Join us this week for a busy meeting! We will be holding elections for the 2015/2016 board and have a guest speaker.
The positions of Secretary, Treasurer, and President Elect are open, please consider running to help continue the awesome traditions of our club! I can answer any questions about the Secretary and President Elect positions, and Carmen can answer questions about Treasurer. There is a lot of support for each positions, so you will be trained and not just thrown into anything!
In the second half of the meeting we will have guest speaker Darla Sturdy on the Safety and Culture of TriMet.
Join us this Tuesday as we (hopefully) watch the Portland Trail Blazers beat the Utah Jazz! The club only has 16 tickets and right now this event is full, so if anything changes please let Carmen know ASAP.
The game starts at 7pm, please meet by the Will Call area at 6:30pm. Traffic and parking are always fun on game nights so consider public transit if possible.
