Calling all Rotarians, 
What happens 11 days before Valentine's Day?'s the annual District 5010 Leadership & Training event!  (If you thought "I had better order flowers" that's probably a good answer too!)

So if you aren't able to attend in person - NO PROBLEM - we'll have an online meeting so you can tune in from anywhere (slippers and fuzzy PJs not provided).
