Aurora Rotary is partnering with Aurora Public Schools and Cherry Creek Schools to provides books for elementary school students to read over the summer. If  you have books for a little older audience set those aside as well for student family members.

Don Massey, Rotary Club of Aurora President - 2020/2021 Club Message and Goals
New club President, Don Massey, kicked off the club meeting talking about his goals for the upcoming year.  He reviewed recent survey results provided by the district that many of you completed.  This survey was different than the one sent to you by the club Finance committee, but had several areas that Don would like to focus on for his term.  Two primary areas to focus on were diversity of the club membership and membership engagement.  As referenced above in announcements, Don has formed several committees to focus on areas to provide opportunities for the club membership to become involved beyond our meetings.  Please reach out to him or the chair persons of these committees to join and provide ideas and insight on areas for improvement.  Don was very excited about this upcoming year and how to navigate Covid19 successfully for the club and our membership.   We will be meeting at the Town Center of Aurora until we have found another permanent location to meet.  Please watch for emails from Kimberly to RSVP for these meetings.  The club will still be offering Zoom calls for those that would like to continue with this format as it pertains to the meeting.  He also thanked the membership for continuing to pay their dues during this time as it has provided financial stability and a bit of a restoration to our savings account that allows for some reserves as we continue to navigate this pandemic.   Don is looking forward to hearing from each and every member on how we can continue to grow, change, and enhance our club.
