Lift Your Spirits! July Program Peek
During July, the Rotary Club of Kirkland's will host and hear from several beverage industry leaders, and tasting will be included in one or more of the programs! Dr. Jeff Peterson will entertain Rotarians with the history of cider production around the world, an overview of how cider is produced, and insights gained through a personal journey in the cider business. Wine making consultant Bob Betz will offer his perspective of how and why the wine industry has exploded, where we are now, and the opportunities and challenges of the future.
2021-22 Dues Statements Coming
Rotarians' dues statement for the new Rotary year will be published during the first week of July, and are due by July 31. There are no significant differences in statements this year. The format and how Rotarians will be able to pay online remains the same as last year. There are some small adjustments in dues amounts led by increases in district and national charges.
Last year, the club implemented the online dues and billing module that is built into the ClubRunner system. That means dues statements will be produced again this year by the ClubRunner system and sent to members in an email, similar to how Rotarians receive meeting announcements and the club's bulletin, the Spokesman.
