We all know that Rotary’s motto is ‘Service Above Self.'  If you have an inkling to help others, Rotary is a great place to do it.  However, Rotary is SO MUCH MORE than that.  WIIFM?  What is in it for you?.... VALUE!  Rotary offers lots of amazing opportunities to meet influential business leaders in your community and professionally network with them. Rotary club members represent a cross-section of the community’s owners, executives, managers, political leaders, and professionals – people who make decisions and influence policy.
