May Membership Moment
Rotarians, your District Membership Team wants to thank you all for your efforts to Grow Rotary this year.  At this point we show a positive growth, which is great, but we must be ever vigilant in our efforts until the end of this Rotary year.  Some clubs “purge” their rolls before the end of the year so we must continue to look for new Rotarians and keep the Rotarians we have.
