The Southeastern Regional North Carolina District Rotary Clubs all met on Saturday, August 24th at the Cape Fear Vineyard & Winery to discuss how to better serve their communities, according to Elizabethtown Rotary President, Mrs. Anne Beyer.
There were approximately 25 Rotary Club members from various clubs in District 7730 according to Mrs. Beyer.
“This conference was about promoting leadership, membership and making goals,” Mrs. Beyer stated.
Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change- across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves, according to the national website.
Bladen County has two active Rotary Clubs. The Bladenboro Rotary Club meets every Monday at 6:30 p.m. at the Bladenboro Community Building. The Elizabethtown Rotary Club meets every Wednesday at 1:00 p.m. at Cape Fear Vineyard & Winery.
Both local clubs have assisted with many local, national and world wide projects. Every year, both clubs offer scholarships to local students as well as preforming other civic duties in the local communities.
