As part of his 2021-22 initiatives, Rotary International President Shekhar Mehta is encouraging clubs to plan and host a practical and action-oriented Rotary Day of Service. The event should address a challenge facing your community that fits in one or more of Rotary’s areas of focus and brings together volunteers from within and outside of Rotary. We’re halfway through the Rotary year, and many clubs have already risen to the challenge.
