February is the month of groundhogs, presidents and love. For our club, it’s cookies, snowshoeing and much more! Be sure to check out our calendar of events, along the left of the screen, for our meeting schedule and several special events coming up.
We have been inducting new members every month, so if you join us now you won’t be the only newbie! If you have questions about Rotary, our club specifically or you would like to coordinate a visit to an upcoming meeting, please reach out to us at bvillerotary1@yahoo.com. We love to have visitors and are happy to answer any questions you might have about what it means to be a Rotarian!

Snowshoe & Soup
All Rotarians are invited to attend our third annual snowshoe outing, followed by a warm meal n Saturday, February 13th. Snowshoers are to meet at Beaver Lake Nature Center at 11am and then for a soup making competition after at the Methodist Church at 1pm. You can bring your soup to the church before the hike to stay warm in a crockpot or just join everyone after the hike at the church. Make your most delicious soup to go up against fellow club members and enjoy tasting them all!
