In Rotary, each club has committees. We do understand that most outsiders don’t understand the purpose of these committees. But as Rotarians, we often forget that we get so caught up in the weekly meeting agenda that we don’t always know what is going on in the committees in our own club. So, we’re going to begin showcasing some of these committees over the coming months. Our first Committee blog post is for everyone -- for outsiders to understand the purpose and a refresher and…Continue

But then there are those special moments some mornings that wake you up more than any amount of coffee ever could. On this particular morning, one of our members stood up and delivered a well done, to the…Continue

Whenever I talk to others about being a Rotarian, I am often asked just what type of volunteer is a Rotarian. We’re just volunteers like any other.

Volunteering is when you give your time to help an organization, or an individual in need. Volunteering should never be something you are made to do, and is not done for financial gain. The…Continue
