Rotary's high school study abroad program is based on the premise that we can achieve WORLD PEACE by "exchanging" students to and from different parts of the world. As a Rotarian recently said, "Diplomats sit around conference tables. Exchange students sit around dinner tables." This is where true cultural understanding and human caring begin. The program is only possible with an amazing group of volunteers. If you share our passion for world peace, we would love to make you a part of our team.
-->Volunteers needed to help multiple clubs/students by serving at the district level:
Treasurer- Fid Braffett has done a tremendous job using QuickBooks to keep us fiscally healthy. If you or a fellow Rotarian enjoy keeping books, this job would be fun. Books are in great shape, and you would inherit a well-run financial system.
