Dear Harbortown Rotarians -
During the October 2023 board meeting, the Harbortown Rotary Board of Directors unanimously voted to increase meal rates from $12 to $15. This is the first increase since 2020 and is in response to the club absorbing the $6,000  difference between actual meal costs and dues collected for meals. Our actual meal cost is around $22 per meal after tax and gratuity are added to our weekly invoice. 
You will see the new meal rates included in your next quarterly invoice, effective July 1, 2023.
Finally, this rate increase will not cover the meal gap entirely by itself. With that said, I will be reaching out to Rule of 85 members separately to discuss further potential changes moving forward.
If you have questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to call or email me.
Best Regards,
Tony Hansen
