On the 4th of May, our Club is having a Club Service meeting to learn about what our new President has in store for the start of next Rotary year. This meeting should be exciting. We are getting ready to turn the page for a new chapter of the Rotary Club of Berwick. What sort of exciting chapter will we write?
Our Club over the past 10 years has not renewed our membership in the way it should have and that has caused an imbalance of active members able to carry out projects. We have experience, social engagement, fun and excitement but what we really need are younger members who can take the places of older members who are not able to do what they used to be able to do. Incoming President Gus will share his plan with us and if you want to learn more about what our Club can do, this is a good meeting to be at. See more:
