Program: Board Member Erika Cox led the club through an interactive survey receiving information from the membership about how we can make what we want our club to be.  Interesting outcomes:
  29% of our members are women
50% of the membership has been a member for over 10 years
We are open to meeting for one evening a month in lieu of our noon meeting.
We would like to know more about our members' we would like 1 program a month to focus on a member and their business!! 
Our local projects should focus on community volunteering.
We would like visible branding of Rotary in Muscatine.
We are willing to give our money or our time!
We still want to network and have Fun at our meetings!!
These are just a few of the highlights of the survey. We will get more detail at a future meeting!!
Thanks!! Erika!!
