Rotary celebrated Membership and New Club Development Month with the launch of its 9th Annual Buddy Program.  The objectives of the Buddy Program were to increase membership engagement; provide fun and fellowship; achieve Rotary’s goals; provide opportunities for Prospective Rotarians; show appreciation to members; strengthen the Club; promote Rotary’s Brand/Areas of Focus, Team building, Leadership, Community Building and Rotarians’ interest in the Environment.
“One of Rotary’s most colorful traditions is members’ exchanging club banners.
