Due to the fact departing from its best system monitoring software standard lunch meetings at the Back garden Metropolis Lodge past March 9, when Mayor Theresa Trouve served as our very last in-particular person visitor speaker, the Mineola-Garden City Rotary Club has held to its schedule of holding meetings on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every single month – almost, on Zoom.

Almost nothing can swap assembly encounter-to-confront and sharing the fellowship of Club members and friends! None the less, we have continued to welcome a excellent collection of guest speakers who have joined us on Zoom But – we do seem ahead to returning to the Hotel at the soonest. Keep the Club ticking!
