Membership Resources

“Whatever Rotary may mean to us, to the world it will be known by the results it achieves.”

                                                                                                                                   — Paul Harris, 1914

Below you will find resources to help you understand and become engaged in the work of our Passport South Rotary Club, our District 7080 and Rotary International as a whole. If at any time you require support or have questions, please feel free to contact our Membership Committee Members.
