Work with Club Leaders to earn 2018-19 Rotary Citation.  Why? Your Club will be better for having tried as you’ll do more good in the community and the world. And you’ll also have fun!  Here is a link to more information on the Rotary Citation.

Continue to create awareness about Rotary’s key role in eradicating polio and raising funds towards this cause which continues to pay benefits.

Rotary is the Best Kept Secret in your community! You can help by ensuring your Club Is posting pictures and stories about Club projects on social media. When you do, encourage your club to share with friends!  Follow District 5970 on Facebook for ideas and see what other Clubs are doing here.
