How to record Service Activities is a helpful publication from Rotary International.  According to John, our R.I. representative “Though there was a big push by President Ian to track volunteer and service hours last Rotary Year, this information has been something that Rotary’s been collecting for quite some time. A club can still record information about their projects and the number of volunteers, hours, resources involved, through Rotary Club Central. On the left column, there is a link for Service Activities, and you are encouraged to record there!”

I checked with Dennis Drager, our Assistant Governor in Marshalltown, inquiring about the possibility of other Rotary clubs helping the Rotary Club of Marshalltown in the aftermath of the recent tornado.  Here is what he shared with me. - DG Tom Narak
