PDG Bill Dimond, Chair


If you believe in Rotary and its power to make a difference in the world, it is time to stand up and commit to doing the best job you can — with all of your mind, your heart, and your soul.

The Future of Rotary Is in Your Hands. 09-10 R.I. President John Kenny

“Back when Rotary became involved with polio, most people thought volunteer organizations were about tackling projects down the street or across town – not across the world. Rotary changed all that, and in the process, you reminded us that there is no human problem so daunting that it can’t be overcome by people.”

- Bill Gates, Sr.
