Carmi Rotary Club Preparing For Their Annual Fall Trivia Contest

At Thursday’s meeting of the Carmi Rotary club, there was no formal speaker, so the Rotarians on hand used their time to discuss a variety of topics.

First up, the club discussed next week’s meeting, when the newly inaugurated district Governor will be on hand. Mary Harvey, of the Mt. Vernon, Illinois club will make her first official visit to Carmi, as the 22-23 DG of the southern Illinois district.

The members held a brief discussion of the upcoming trivia contest. This year’s fall event will be held a little earlier than normal, with the big night taking place on Saturday, October 22nd. Much more information will be coming out as the contest gets closer.
