(Townsend April 19) The Rotary Club of Townsend wanted to paint the inside of the Senior Center as part of a Montana Rotary District 5390 grant for Fiscal Year 2019-2020. Small portions of the walls were cleaned, and test splotches were painted with variable colors and the Seniors picked their favorite color. Dates were set to remove articles and start cleaning walls. The dates were cancelled due to the COVID-19 shelter-at-home order.

The Holiday Party last Saturday (Jan 24,2019) was a great success! Rex did a great job of preparing steak and fowl and we got rid of drinks left over from Fall Fest -- WOO HOO!
The only questionable thing about the party is how badly we sang Karaoke. WHEW! I hope no one had nightames after all the off-key sining we did! And Bill, I hope Barb didn't make you walk home after that serenade....

The Rotary Club of Townsend has survived since 1939 and has become the club to go to if something needs to be done in our community. Rotary is always looking for potential new members to continue that tradition. Many service organizations like Rotary are struggling to find new energetic members. Fortunately, another new young Rotary member has been recruited in Townsend.
