May 22, 2024 - Another Rotary Connection made 'across the pond'!  Past President JD Holmes and his wife, Varner, had a vacation across Europe in the last few weeks.  They had the great pleasure to stop in Germany where they were able to have dinner with Germering Rotary President Bert Beyreuther, his family, several club members and a Rotary Youth Exchange student from Arizona.  What a great experience!  
 
May 16, 2024 - #4WayTest #RotaryBusinessLeader #ptcrotary
Thanks to President Amy's commitment to recognizing local business leaders that portray the ideals of Rotary in both their personal and professional lives.
Is it the Truth? (How does the business leader deal with customers in a truthful and honorable manner?)
Is it Fair to all concerned? (How does the business leader represent and warrant its products and services in an honest and ethical manner?)
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned? (How does the business leader's goods and services benefit the welfare of the community, customers and employees?)
Will it Build Goodwill and Better Friendships? (How does the business leader participate in community functions and fulfill the public need?)
Congratulations to Pat Burke, Joe Domaleski and Brent Scarbrough!
