Dear Club Presidents:
I am writing to you to remind you that you should be recruiting applicants for the ROTARY WORLD PEACE FELLOWSHIP. Please mention to your membership that this opportunity exists. Ask them to share this concept with their contacts in the community. I am sure that we can find good qualified candidates if all Rotarians spread the word about PEACE FELLOWSHIPS.
