News and Happenings

With a new year, we have a new look!
We’ve used all the newest features of Club Runner to give our home page a new, updated look. We’ll be changing more in the coming weeks but wanted to get things rolling by sharing a new look to our home page.
Everything is still here – but instead of listing it on the home page, more will be in menus. Like the Rotary International site, our home page is going to be more ‘public facing’ – more about Who We Are.
Like Rotary International, we are introducing a “My District Rotary” page, which will have the How to Get Things Done information. We’re really proud to introduce the “What do you want to do” box with links to the most common items that you ask about – just like Rotary International.
And with all of this comes a new responsive web design that will work on your computer, laptop, tablet or even your phone!
In the upcoming months, we’re going to be working more with our District Committees to update their site pages and committee pages for better communication and continuity too.
The Rotary International Foundation continues to receive the highest score from the leading independent evaluator of charities - Charity Navigator.
The Rotary Foundation of Rotary International has received 8 consecutive 4-star ratings from Charity Navigator.
Congratulations to the 2016 recipient of the Cadwallader Award - Dorothy Zimmerman of Beatrice Rotary.
Dorothy has been active in Club, Community and International activities through Rotary. One of Dorothy’s biggest joys has been her work in Zambia. She has traveled there on six separate trips since 2008.
Read all about Dorothy's commitment to service in the flyer published to celebrate her award (click here).
