Rotary Satellite Club at Tryon Estates

The Rotary Club of Tryon is very excited to announce the creation of a Satellite Club at Tryon Estates. At their inaugural meeting, the satellite club inducted Rachel Ramsey, Ray Sparks, Robert Tope, Michael Dickenson, Diane Nelson, and Charles Boone as new members

The following Rotary Club of Tryon members have transferred their membership to the new satellite club: Carl Schumacher, Jim Robards, Ben Woodward, Dave Rice, and Larry Poe.

The new club will be called “The Rotary Satellite Club of Tryon TE”. These are full-fledged members of the Rotary Club of Tryon who will set their own rules about meeting times and frequencies, whether or not to associate their meetings with a meal, programs, etc.

Rotary Club of Tryon members may attend the regular Club meetings on Thursdays at the Tryon Presbyterian Church or the new Satellite Club meeting at Tryon Estates. We expect the Clubs to work together on shared community activities and fundraising.

The new satellite club is not restricted to Tryon Estates residents.

If you are interested in joining either Club, please contact the Rotary Club of Tryon President, Fred Hartley at 423-341-4965 or
