Meeting notes for May 16, 2018

Wenatchee North Rotary Rebrands

Rotary Club of Wenatchee Confluence is the new name

The biggest development at our meeting on May 16 was the name change. After a week of deliberation and online polling, we took the suggested club titles and had a vote. The Rotary Club of Wenatchee Confluence, Wenatchee Confluence Rotary for short, won with 12 votes. Riverview Rotary got the second-highest number of votes with 8. 

For more on the story of why we chose to rebrand the club and move forward with a new name, see the meeting minutes from the last few posts.

A quick look at the Habitat for Humanity home build on Saturday, May 12. President Richard DeRock joined local Interact club members to help put the finishing touches on a project that when finished, will house three families. Wenatchee High School's Interact Club raised more than $50,000 to fully fund one of the triplex units that are expected to be finished later this summer in South Wenatchee.
