A Few Other Things…
  • Rotary’s Future Vision Plan
    • Rotary asks you to think bigger, collaborate with other clubs and districts, be involved in Rotary programs that provide sustainability - not just "do a project" then leave.
  • Pilot vs. Non-Pilot Districts
    • D 5100 is a non-pilot district
  • Club Certification & Training in F.V. – in 2012-2013. Don’t let these get in the way … plan NOW to join in or sponsor a project.
