Thank you to all of you that took time out of your busy day to attend our Rotary Planning Retreat. The event was a huge success and I believe we have some great ideas to help our club move forward.  A big Thank you to Terri Pickering with Moore Norman Technology Center for leading our rowdy bunch!  She will take our many ideas and put together a power point that we will discuss at one of our club meetings.  

I also received several ideas by email from Rotarians that couldn't attend. Thank you for taking time to email me those.  If by chance you were unable to attend and have some ideas on how to help our Rotary club move forward please email them to me and I will get them to Terri. 

Thank you and I look forward to some exciting times!! 

Thanks Chasity
