Club Assembly
This week's program dealt with the inner workings of our Rotary Club. Every year the new President presents the current financials and reviews the many projects and donations that were provided by the club over the past year. Continuing resolutions are also looked at and modified as needed. Due to the confidential material being discussed, this particular meeting is attended by Santa Maria Breakfast Rotarians only. Traditional programs will resume again beginning August 8.
