News Around The District
DG Rick Stacy's December Message

In my opinion, it is only fitting that December of each year, Rotary designates as Disease Prevention and Treatment Month.  What our organization does for humanity is a gift indeed.  A gift of life to so many.  To many more, a gift of improved quality of life and less suffering for those that need our help the most.  We believe strongly that good health care is a basic right for everyone.  It is estimated that over 400 million in the world can’t afford or don’t have access to basic health care.

The Importance of Rotary's Visual Identity
Some brands are recognized around the world just by their logos. When people see the logo, they instantly know what it means and what to expect from the product. Building that kind of visual recognition requires effort, including years of using a logo widely and consistently. Companies work at this because earning that global recognition benefits their business.
