Rotary Club of ELTHAM CLUB ASSEMBLY #1, 2009. • The YEAR AHEAD
RI PRESIDENT John KENNY’S THEME for 2009 - 2010The FUTURE of ROTARY is in YOUR HANDS
With that in MIND I have adopted the THEME “Many Hands Make Light Work” For THE Rotary Club of Eltham
INVOLVEMENT = OWNERSHIP = RETENTION. Think about it - A ROTARIAN should be PROACTIVE rather than REACTIVE.
