As we begin another year, I would encourage everyone to think about how he/she can best contribute to the success of our club. We all have strengths in different areas. If we channel all our expertise and efforts, I think we can be continue to serve our charities in a very valuable way.
RI President Banerjee is asking us all to “Reach Within to Embrace Humanity.” Our club has had an impressive record of helping others, and I know this year will be no different. We have consistently received the Presidential Citation, and I encourage everyone to help us reach that goal again this year. For more specific details about this year’s requirements, please click here.
Please make it a habit to attend our meetings and visit this website often. We will have details about upcoming events posted in a timely manner, and your participation is vital to our success.
