A Message From The Executive Director, Kathy Tate

Fellow Rotarians,

Exciting news and opportunity continue beyond the success of our inaugural Zoom meeting this past Monday—thank you to all who joined the meeting!

Recently, I was informed that the Park Inn has been sold and is now under new ownership; the doors will close on March 31, 2020.  The future of the Park Inn has included many rumors, none of which can be confirmed and all of which I expect will be clarified over time.

Although the challenges of moving are a bit escalated from our original plans, the timing couldn’t be more perfect!  Our Club and its members never cease to amaze me and I am so very thankful for all those that have immediately stepped up to help.

Here is our current status:

  • Thanks to fellow Rotarian Steve Miller, we have plenty of storage space for our immediate needs at Seagate Center.  We have a multitude of venue options available for future consideration and have confirmed use of the Aquarium at the Huntington Center during the interim, once the Governor’s directive is reversed.
  • I, along with club administrator Abbey Mortemore Sachs are working remotely—a huge thanks to fellow Rotarian Matt Adkins and Argyle IT for managing & implementing that process.
  • Additionally, President Tim has formed an ad-hoc House Committee led by fellow Rotarian Lynette Reichle to assist in locating office space that will serve our Rotary Club now and well into the future.

Updates will be provided as known. Please feel free to reach me directly if you have any immediate questions or thoughts.  You may email me at ktate@toledorotary.org or call my cell at 419-973-Take care, be well and be safe.

Kathy
