End-of-Year Numbers Show Membership Gain; Attendance Lagging

We begin the new Rotary Year with a membership of 240 active members which is a net gain of four from the July 2016 start of 2016. The club lost 20 members during the year but inducted 24. There are three status levels making up what is considered an active membership: Active (including senior active), Active-Life and Active-R85 (240). Honorary members (27) are not counted.

Attendance continues to track below our historic averages. This past Rotary year the average club attendance was 55.2% but five meetings fell below half the active club membership.
