Stay up-to-date on everything happening in and around Eugene Southtowne Rotary Club.

Farewell Party for Nancy and Walt!

Please help, and attend! 

Sunday, October 16 from 5-7 PM – Campbell Community Center

You may know that Walt and Nancy Meyer will be moving to Portland very soon to be closer to their kids and grandkids.  We want to celebrate their enormous contributions to Southtowne by having a party.  

The party is free to all club members and their spouses, and we will not be using club money to pay for it, so we need a little help to make the party happen.

To this end, cash and beverage donations are most welcome!! We are extremely grateful to Eugene Mission for graciously offering to cater the event AT NO COST TO THE CLUB. We would like to thank them with a small cash donation. We also need help in paying for the space rental at Campbell Community Center. Please contact Jean if you are able to donate money and contact Lonny re: beverage donations (mostly wine, but also beer and sparkling water). 

If you want to thank Walt and Nancy for their generous volunteerism with a gift, we suggest making a donation to either TRF or to the club foundation (Southtowne Rotary Foundation). You can write a check to your chosen foundation and send/give it to Susie.  She will deliver the checks to the appropriate entity. 

Please join us for drinks, great food, AND a dance party as we celebrate this special couple.

Attendance will be limited to 50 people, so please RSVP to Susie soon if you can join the celebration. We hope that you can celebrate with us!
