Montgomery Rotary Club Submits Charter Application
On Thursday, May 28th, the Montgomery Rotary Club held its first evening networking meeting. During this event, the group’s charter application package was given to Rotary Special Representative Mary Dougherty to be delivered to Rotary International in Evanston, Illinois.
Over the last several months a small group of residents has been working to bring a Rotary Club to Montgomery. The minimum number of members needed to charter was reached in a relatively short period of time. This accomplishment puts the group on their way to chartering the new club before the end of the Rotary year on June 30th.
The group meets on the first and third Thursday mornings from 7:00 to 8:00am. The fourth Thursday is their evening networking from 6:30 to 7:30pm. Meetings are held at the Montgomery Village Hall, 200 North River Street, Montgomery.
Rotary International is a service organization started in Chicago in 1905 that continues today with approximately 1.2 million Rotarians worldwide. Rotary values service above self. It is a professional, ethical, diverse organization that allows members to make a difference in their own communities and as well as the world. It transcends race, religion, and culture by uniting its members through service.
Interested members of the public are invited to attend the meetings to learn more about Rotary and the club in Montgomery. If you will attend, please respond to Theresa Sperling, Membership Chair at 630-430-2181 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
