Rotary Weekend: Putting It Together to Get the Most Out of Rotary
Rotarians work together to make dreams a reality, the impossible possible and lives better at home and around the world. When we work together amazing things happen.
We hope you can join us in North Bay for the Rotary Weekend (including President Elect Training), April 15th – 17th. The weekend will provide the opportunity to:
  reconnect with Rotary friends and enjoy Fun and Fellowship
  enjoy karaoke and dancing on Saturday night
  learn more about our amazing organization: The Rotary Foundation, local and
international projects, youth programs, membership, online resources and tools and more
  develop personal and professional leadership skills, conflict resolution skills, team
building and more
Please contact Susan Davidson at if you have any questions about the weekend. We are looking forward to seeing you!
