Chris Austin’s email: Hi Friends, please note the Rotary email I set up for all communications to me: I’ve had a few issues with the account but it should be working now. Please do not send any emails to my old account ( as they may go unnoticed. Apologies if I may have overlooked and not responded to your emails. Still getting the process ironed out. Also, could I ask if you have information you’d like included in the weekly email, could you kindly insert into the email header the following txt: “ROTARY ANNOUNCEMENT (Title) and Week of Date/Month”. This will help ensure I can track all announcements. Thanks for your patience and support! I welcome your feedback to improve things. Don’t hesitate to send suggestions.
