District & Club News
A very happy Valentine’s Day to each member of our vibrant District.   The good work that is taking place in every corner of our District is absolutely staggering when we look at it collectively.  
 
It was 112 years ago this month that Paul Harris and three of his friends founded the first Rotary club.  His goal was simple: to create an oasis of friendship amid a city of strangers, with those who shared his values.

Q. What is the purpose of the Centennial Celebration Dinner?
