Ed N4EDT began with the question, What are your thoughts ROAR
Each attendee was given the opportunity to share in their own words what ROAR participation means to them.
Following this discussion questions were asked about the current situation and its remedy.
Much information from a personal point of view was voiced.
A copy of the electronic ballot was shared by screen share which elicited further questions, for which there are currently no answers.
All in attendance agreed that they wanted ROAR to continue but in a manner that befits Rotary aims and objectives.
