In July, Kyle Boardman passed the presidential gavel on to Lindsay Glynn to lead our Metro North Rotary Club throughout the 22/23 Rotary year, our club's 20th year! In the first quarter alone, Lindsay has been off and running with our "20 Service Projects for 20 Years" goal. She has coordinated and enabled our club to complete five of the twenty projects with another five projects set up to finish out 2022. 
Early this fall, we welcomed Suzuha (Su), an exchange student from Japan! She is part of the Rotary Youth Exchange program and will be with us all school year.
Join Metro North Rotary Saturday, June 11th for our signature event - Lager ‘Lympics presented by Cedar Rapids Toyota! Come sample some of the best local and regional craft beers and participate in our Olympic games! This craft beer tasting event will take place inside the NewBo City Market. With 4 hours to sip on a variety of craft beers, enjoy your favorites while discovering new and seasonal brews. To add to the festivities, we're excited to welcome up and coming local music bands from the Eastern Iowa Arts Academy! Plus, where there is beer, there must be food. Vendors from the NewBo City Market will have local fare available for purchase.
Event tickets are available here:
- General Admission Ticket Price: $25*
- DD Ticket Price: $5 (Perfect for those not interested in sampling the beer.)
