Woodbridge had a great year under Anna Dickerson’s Presidency, their club grew by 6 members!!
I had the pleasure of visiting the Westport Sunrise Rotary Club (WSR) this morning for their breakfast meeting. Not only did I experience a welcome fellowship from all of their members but they bestowed many yellow ducks and a yellow duck carrying bag on me (photo).
The WSR is a very active club and well organized club that is growing their membership in leaps and bounds and doing amazing things in the community and the world.
The club has had a great year under President Steve Violette’s leadership. They are currently getting ready for their major fundraiser; The Great Duck Race on June 22nd.
WSR plans to celebrate their 25th anniversary this coming year during incoming President Bob Galan’s term.
WSR has many of it’s members involved in key D7980 leadership positions for many years.
