Rotary Club of Cumberland meetings

We meet every Tuesday at noon for a buffett-style lunch at the Cumberland Country Club. 

Meetings typically feature a brief opening with club business followed by a featured guest speaker who talk about topics of interest to our membership.

The luncheon meeting usually adjourns at 1 pm.

Cumberland Rotatrians contribute to, support, and volunteer for a huge array of local, regional, national, and international endeavors.
