How to claim attendance credit  at the Skaneateles Rotary Club, for any of the above, simply supply the Secretary. (or their designee) with one of the following:
  1. Traditional Make-up Cards ....  or the following current simplified Skaneateles methods that assumes the 4-way test is assumed
  2. A note, letter or email stating:  “Where and when” (emails are most liked method) to Ward @
  3. Place a note on the back of your club Skaneateles weekly attendance card of “where and when”.  Please note on the front of the card that there is a make-up on the back, else it may be missed. (most used method) 
  4. A phone call to Ward (247-4449) with the information (least liked method, but it is acceptable) 

Hopefully this helps with some clarification.  Have fun out there in the world of Make-Ups.  Meet some new Rotarians and bring back some good stories and ideas.
