The craft beer and brewing industry is big business in America.  The industry has evolved over the years from your friend’s basement with brews that only a mother could love to an industry that continues to expand exponentially with a passionate following of consumers who appreciate the nuances of beer flavor and character that rival their wine-loving compatriots.

According to an economic impact study by Beer Serves America, the beer industry in West Virginia – made up of brewers, beer importers, beer distributors and beer retailers – contributes more than $940 million annually to West Virginia’s economy.

Other Ways to Make-up a Meeting:

1. The board unanimously approved another avenue to get additional credit for attendance. In addition to attending a committee meeting, doing an online make-up, or visiting another Rotary Club you can now get one meeting credit for every new member prospect/guest you bring to a regular Monday meeting. The credit will apply during the same quarter in which you bring the potential member/guest. This is a great way to both make up attendance and recruit new members into our club. Contact Bryan Cokeley with questions at

2. To do a make-up meeting on-line, click the link below: Rotary Club Online make-up location: on-line system is set up to provide a written confirmation of the make-up to the person who actually did the make-up. The Member is then responsible for providing the confirmation to their Rotary Club Administrator. Please forward a copy of your confirmation letter to me to receive proper credit, also check the weekly newsletter to see if I have listed your make up and name, if not this indicates that I did not receive your make-up notice.
