President's Message AUGUST 2015

August is Membership Month, which means it’s time to celebrate our Rotary club, our members and the good we do in our community and around the world.

We can celebrate our members by sharing with you that our 82 members are from 15 different countries and that we have an exact same number of women and men Rotarians: 37 members are in the USA, 18 in Australia, 7 in Germany, 4 in Switzerland, 3 in Italy, 2 in India, New Zealand and Spain and one in Austria, Bangladesh, Canada, France, Nigeria, Sri Lanka and Thailand.

In the first six month of 2015 we logged in 5085 hours of Service Projects and participation in local events all over the world, this is a very impressive average of 10 hours of service per member per month, every member, every month.
