September Social Event Planned
One of the tenants of the Four Way Test is “Will it build goodwill and better friendships?” Much of what we do in Rotary builds goodwill, and some builds better friendships. Friendships are important as they help keep members engaged and involved which results in more projects and higher participation rates. Metro has long used social events are opportunities to meet and educate prospective Rotarians as well as foster better relationships between club members.
The bottom line is these events are scheduled so members can have fun together! Our club will be as successful as our members want to make it. Please consider attending our next social event planned for Thursday, September 3 at Room 38 (38 North 8th Street) beginning at 5:15 p.m.
