August 4 – Joe Ruskey, District 6250 Governor, was the guest speaker. He emphasized the importance of Rotary throughout the world. It has a presence at the United Nations because of its work with peace and resolution. Our number one goal continues to be elimination of Polio in the world. If three consecutive years pass with no new cases, the goal will have been achieved.
He encouraged us to tell the story of Rotary, not to brag, but to let people know what we do in communities and the world.
