Rotary South dedicated a tree grove at Rotary Park in honor of our 50th Anniversary year. Three beautiful sugar maple trees were planted. We hope to add to the grove in the years to come.
Today marked the 10th anniversary of donating sweatshirts to Douglas School. We celebrating by donating 130 sweatshirts to very grateful kids. In 10 years over 1,000 sweatshirts have been given out!

The vote is in ... Rotary South has a new home!

Our Thursday noon meetings will now be held at the Secret Recipes Reception Center,  located just off of Stevenson Drive on Normandy Road (north of Hardees).  The food is fabulous, and there is plenty of free parking and accessibility and plenty of room to welcome everyone.  Join us!

As it says at the end of the clip, in Rotary there are no funny hats, no secret handshakes.

Rotary is simply an opportunity to
    build friendships,
        serve the community,
            and save the world.

We invite you to join us!
