A Glimpse into Lake Chelan Rotary's Past
Mary Ann Warren shared this letter from a notebook of saved Rotary memories and history, giving us a look at some of the fun and pranks that went on during this era.  It is not clear who the author was, but Howard Van Slyke was Lake Chelan Rotary's President in 1927-1928, and Lloyd Ford was the President in 1935-1936.  
District Youth Exchange Committee Seeks Volunteers
The District Youth Exchange Committee is accepting applications to join the committee to fulfill some very important roles.
