Rotary District 6080Organization
I encourage all Rotarians to celebrate Rotary International's birthday on February 23. Consider for a moment all of the good that Rotary has done to improve the lives of millions during the past 113 years. Together we can continue to make a BIG DIFFERENCE in the world. - Melvin Platt, District Governor https://rotary6080.org/february-2018-rotary-district-6080-…/
We had a Rotary for Life meeting today. For those of you who don't know, it is an initiative of the Columbia and Fulton Rotary clubs to encourage organ donations--hearts, kidneys, corneas, etc. We're wondering whether anyone would be interested in joining a Rotary for Life team for the Kidney Walk at Stephens Lake Park in Columbia April 7. It would bring awareness to both Rotary and organ donation. Comment if you're interested in walking or helping sponsor the team. Thanks.
On February 23 Rotary will celebrate its 113th birthday. I encourage your Rotary club to celebrate this month and to further inform your community of the life and impact of Rotary. https://rotary6080.org/february-2018-rotary-district-6080-…/
