  • we will be focused on the meeting format following Visioning workshop and the following board meeting.

    • one Rotary business eg Committee meeting with minutes and report back to all members;
    • one fellowship to include joint Club meeting, Rotaract involvement, visits and tours.
Attendance costs will be considered together with type of refreshment .
