your blood type"

golf pro tells you to keep your head down is so you

Purpose of our Rotary Club: a founding principle
of Rotary was to provide a forum for professional and business
leaders for Professional Networking (business owners, people
in management positions). We create ways to raise money
and use these financial resources to help humanity on a
local community level, national level, international level,
as well as helping our own Rotary Club thrive. About 1.2
million Rotarians belong to more than 31,500 Rotary Clubs
worldwide (Rotary International). Local clubs may combine
their humanitarian influence worldwide. As of June, 2004,
209 countries are polio-free as a result of the Rotary PolioPlus
program, to stamp out Polio in underprivileged countries
of the world. We also award scholarships to our local community’s
students who need help in furthering their educational goals.
We also help to provide disaster relief, and help in world
peace through funding Ambassadorial (educational) Scholarships,
whose recipients serve as unofficial “ambassadors
of goodwill” in foreign countries. We ‘give-back’
to the people of our local community because of them, our
businesses have become more successful. Rotary Clubs are
benevolent business networking organizations destined to
help in various humanitarian ways in the local community
as well as in the worldwide community.
time guest prospective Rotarians are welcome to enjoy
a complimentary lunch. Our club features a guest speaker
at most Tuesday meetings. Speakers are welcome to contact
our club to schedule a speaking engagement date. Speakers
are presented from 1:00PM thru 1:30PM, who also enjoy
a complimentary buffet. Luncheon served from 12:15PM through
