It is with considerable sadness we announce the 2022 Rotary International Tri-District Conference, IMPACT!, will not happen this spring. A perfect storm of challenges made it prudent to not proceed. If you have already registered, you will receive a 100% refund. Please remember to cancel your lodging reservations directly with the hotel. It is our hope this event -- or one like it -- will occur at some point in the future, but no decision has been made yet regarding that hope. Stay tuned -- and long live Rotary!

SHAKE THE DUST

Impact! 2022 wouldn’t be complete without a party! In-person activities are back and we’re doing it big with a star-studded lineup of local talent. While the conference will be full of knowledge and connection, there will be plenty of magic to come when the lights go down.

“I Am... He Said”
A Celebration of the Music of Neil Diamond

A Celebration of the Music of Neil Diamond - Starring Matt Vee, nephew of 60’s Pop-Star Bobby Vee

With songs like Cracklin’ Ro-sie, Song Sung Blue, America, Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show, and Sweet Caroline, Neil Diamond sold over 130 million records worldwide, and produced musical hits spanning five decades.

Matt along with cousins Jeff and Tommy Vee, both founders of The Killer Vees and sons of the legendary Bobby Vee, celebrate the music from a timeless catalog. As a Brill Building songwriter in the mid-60s, Neil Diamond penned songs recorded by everyone from Elvis Presley to Deep Purple and, of course, the Monkee’s classic, “I’m A Believer.”

“This is not a tribute show,” says Tommy Vee. “This is a celebration of an amazing musical icon, one we all love and respect. We have recruited an incredible group of singers and players and have gone back to the original records,” he explains, “It is all about the vocals, and Matt nails it! It’s a Rockin’ show!
