November Rotary Happenings

November was a great month for Washington Rotary. Not many updates due to the editor's home improvement project that sucked up a lot of spare time on the weekends.


Hey, there is an opportunity for a Rotarian to step up to get in line to be a future District Governor for District 6000! Just stand up, or sit down, or just hold still to volunteer. Don Patterson was DG and he lived.
