Keeping with the high level of pride and integrity of Las Vegas WON Rotary club, the following individuals have stepped up to fill some of the needed open positions on the Boards as well as club officers. Keeping with the tradition of being first and technology advanced Rotary Club, Las Vegas WON Rotary Club will have a slightly better format for the 2018-19 Rotary year which starts on July 1, 2018. Three, not one, but three very forward thinking member Rotarians have developed a new program for Las Vegas WON Rotary Club Presidency. What is better than one? Three.

On June 8, 2018, our guest speaker will be Erik Eisenberg. He is Vice President of Ticket Sales at Las Vegas 51s baseball team—the Triple-A Affiliate of the New York Mets. Erik will highlight behind-the-scenes strategies and tactics that produced many great players. From Jacob deGrom to Noah Syndergaard to Amed Rosario, the 2015 Mets playoff roster had 12 of the 25 players play in Las Vegas. The team, popular with locals, plays in downtown Las Vegas at Cashman Field.
Tuesday, June 12, 2018: Club Social / Field trip for Raiding the Rock Vault Show at the Hard Rock Casino has a new date: Tuesday, June 12, 8:30p. The previous Raiding the Rock Vault social / field trip a few months ago was a huge success. Club members have asked Richard Reed to arrange another evening with these great actual Rock and Roll musicians from some of the most famous bands of the 1970s, 80s, 90s. Contact Richard Reed for free tickets for yourself, your significant other or potential persons you think might make a good Rotarian. What better way to impress a fellow Rotary prospect than give them a $137 show ticket for free!

Attention members of LV WON Rotary Club who has NOT received a Membership Plaque: All our Rotary plaques were made by fellow Rotarian from Diamond Bar, CA, Bill Longacre. Bill died a few weeks ago and this has slowed us down in getting another source to create the matching frames. Please contact Richard Reed if you have not received your Membership Plaque.
