Tough Economic Times Effect Rotarians

Zone 25 Rotarians recently conducted a Conference call where they discussed the impact that they see across the US West and Mid-West of the toughening economic times on Rotary Club membership.

Family Month

I share with you President D.K. Lee's December Message highlighting Family Month in December. In addition to these thoughts, I would encourage you to involve family and friends in Rotary celebrations this month, and look within this known pool for suitable Rotary club members, whether in your club, or as referrals to other clubs. Happy Holidays to all.
