Telling the Rotary Story

IMG 0211Guest Speaker Dave King, in an excellent and well received address highlighted the vital importance of telling Rotary’s story post Covid-19 and the significance of public image in increasing Rotary’s profile and attracting new members. He pointed out that the Rotary Magazine, first printed in 1915, is the oldest regional magazine in the world.
