OUR SERVICE TO THE WORLD: The Club supports international youth exchange students both here and abroad. This year we sponsored two students to Japan. Our members also support numerous far-reaching projects through the Rotary Foundation.

Rotarians have led the worldwide campaign to eradicate polio through immunizations in developing countries. They sponsor other health clinics, nutrition and development projects on four continents. Rotarians will continue to strive to promote international understanding through educational and humanitarian projects. Specifically this year, for example, we supplied funding to drill a clean water well in Afghanistan.
