This year will be a year of recovery, transition, and renewal for Rotarians now free to gather, work and travel. Rotarians are re-experiencing the “Joy’ of meeting people in person.
 
The strength of your Rotary club is you and the association of like-minded people who enjoy each others company and want to serve their community.  Our clubs reflect our diverse communities and welcome all to participate in fellowship and service. Above all, Rotary should be fun and enjoyable for all.
