One of District Governor John Padgett's priorities is getting more Rotary satellite clubs started. The Rotary Club of Norfolk is helping do this by facilitating the start of a Norfolk satellite club. So far 10 potential Rotarians have attended organizational meetings for a Norfolk club. 
Rotarian Jim O'Brien is our champion for this type of club approved several years ago by Rotary International. The first satellite club in Boulder, Colorado proved to be successful, which led to satellite Rotary Clubs starting around the globe. Satellite clubs typically attract young professionals who are community-minded but do not have time for regular meetings with meals. Satellite members pay RI and district dues, become members of a host club, meet at various times and participate in community service projects with their host club or on their own.
