Community Services
 
Community Services Chair Brad Lancaster led us in a discussion about our club’s service to our community. Brad created three questions for us to discuss:
*   What does service mean to you?  What does Service Above Self look like to you?
*   What service does our community need right now?  How could Rotary help fill those needs?
*   Is there anything that holds you back from doing service?  How could our club make service easier for you?

The 30 Rotarians in attendance were divided into 7 breakout rooms. Each group discussed the questions and reported their conversation back to the larger group. Brad Lancaster is creating a document encapsulating all points that he will share with the club at a later date.
