One thing that has worked with success for some members is to add the following addresses to your email's safe list:

A couple of other things you can try include looking in your junk/spam folder or contacting your company's IT person or IT company to see if they can help you.

Wish We Could Meet in Person?

So do we but Park University is still closed to visitors and we cannot have our meetings in the underground at this time.  

Parkville Rotary is a social group and this pandemic has been hard on all of us. If you have any input/feedback you would like to share please email our President, Lee McLain at
