What you missed last week:
Last week we had Travis Tolliver from the Waverly Chamber of Commerce to share with us what the chamber does to bring new businesses to the area and to support and encourage Waverly business owners , as well as work to increase standard of living in the Waverly area. The chamber has been busy since the advent of Covid-19 with a variety of virtual supports including a business resource page, a spreadsheet of local businesses, and a reopening toolkit for local businesses to help business owners work within current guidelines. They have also had a variety of retail events for businesses and had socially distant and virtual events including a virtual art walk, drive in movies, and a pumpkin carving contest. They have also featured local community leaders in their "Common Grounds" webinar series. He also shared some of the chamber's goals for the next year including increasing social media presence, adding additional wayfinding signage, and more community events.  We thank Travis for speaking with us and all he does to make Waverly a great place to live and to visit!

Rotary Opens Opportunities
Rotary is not just a club you join. It is an invitation to endless opportunities. It opens opportunities to serve in a project as big and historic as End Polio Now and also in a small community project, where you just plant a tree. It opens opportunities for you to live a richer, more meaningful life, with friends around the world, based on our core values. Everything we do opens another opportunity for someone, somewhere.
The 2020-2021 theme is: Rotary Opens Opportunities.
