Hello fellow Rotarians,
Your $100 semi-annual dues for the Rotary Club of Reno Midtown are now due for the first half of the year (dues are billed bi-annually in June and December).
To ensure we have sufficient funds to pay for your share of the club's dues to the District and Rotary International (which are based on the number of members in our club), please make your payment before the end of the year.
You have several options for paying your dues:
If for any reason you need to pause your membership, please let me know asap.
Thank you for your ongoing financial support and let me know if you have any questions!

Our own Lauren Mazurowski, Super Environmental Engineer, can FINALLY unburden herself about her recent research into the use of UV-AOP technology to remove recalcitrant water pollutants from wastewater, therefore to encouraging indirect potable reuse.
Our Vaughn Middle School Big Dig was this past weekend. Thank you to the Rotarians who came out to help - you crushed it! Huge thank you to AG Craig Wessner for his surgical excavation skills and Group West Construction for their trailer and expertise. Above are some before and after photos to commemorate our progress!
We are in talks to return to the Washoe Public House for President Cody's year and it's looking promising! We would love to achieve a working hybrid meeting model where people could attend in person and participate virtually - be gentle on us as we plan this out! Let us know your thoughts about how our future meetings should look!
Great news. RYLA is a GO for 2021 as scheduled!
It’s official as of today: We are definitely going to stage three RYLA sessions on June 13-18, June 20-25 and July 11-16. There may be some masking and social distancing requirements and we will update you as we get closer to the session dates. There will be no mandatory vaccinations required of student participants but we recommend vaccinations whenever possible.
We’d like potential counselors to you to save the date on their calendars (please note counselors are at camp an additional day before the students arrive).
