On May 10, Rotary Club of San Luis Obispo de Tolosa hosted a special reunion meeting, bringing together 18 former members to lunch to catch up and network.
A list of inactive members was generated in ClubRunner from the past 10 years, and culled by by criteria, including: members left in good standing; had not joined another Rotary club; and hadn’t moved out of the area. Many invitees who couldn’t join us responded with a “thank you” and indicated that they would join next time.
Our former Rotarian guests were welcomed by the Membership Director and had a “Rotary Host” to introduce them to others. They were treated to a taco bar lunch provided by the club, while current members shared recent and upcoming projects, confirming the club's continued commitment to community service.
The program featured SLO Rep Artistic Director Kevin Harris, who shared details about the plans for the Downtown SLO Cultural Arts District, the long-awaited new parking structure, and the latest developments with SLO Rep's new theater.
The reunion was a great success, sparking interesting discussions and being an excellent opportunity for the former members to reconnect with old friends and make new connections. Everyone left feeling energized and inspired by the club's good work in the community.
President Cheryl thanked all attendees for joining us, and invited the former members to stay involved, inviting them back to join us any time. This was the first time we’d held such an event, but certainly won’t be our last.
