Lisa, Marciavee and Pat provided some comments about the program. "The best training I have ever encountered...."  "I feel so proud of who we are as Rotarians and what we give back to our community...."   "I was so impressed to see that other Rotarians from all walks of life are doing exactly what we are doing...."   "We didn't join Rotary because we wanted to but because someone else asked us to...."   "I learned so much about Rotary, like the 'Mercy Ship', that I never knew existed...."   "Everyone who is a Rotarian should be required to attend RLI...."

Congratulations to Lisa, Marciavee and Pat for their honor and participation. Further information is available on the District 5080 Website.
