Here is what Karen had to say regarding the upcoming Rotary year:
I hope to continue building on the momentum that we grew last year with our Centennial year. We are a service club first and foremost and I want to find meaningful projects in our community and abroad where we can help those in need. I strongly believe in the power of teamwork and the collective strength that comes from people coming together toward a common goal of helping others . Please consider joining us, you can help make a difference, at home and around the world.
