As we are all aware as Rotarians, the theme for this Rotary year is Rotary Connects The World. And the service we deliver this year will be guided, as it should always be, by the strategic priorities and objectives of Rotary International strategy plan: to increase our impact, expand our reach, enhance participant engagement, and increase our ability to adapt.

Happy Rotarian Year !  Thank you all for coming.  Here are some pics.
