100 second-hand suits are provided to people in need of support.  Interclub visiting became a huge aspect of the Club's activities and 15 Rotary clubs were visited.  RCA received a new bell with a small plaque attached reading: "In Memory of Harry H. Cartledge, District Governor-District 250 1962/63, President 1957/58 and Secretary for 7 years". The bell is used to this day to keep order at luncheon meetings.  The control of the bell is now one of the ‘perks’ of being an Honorary Secretary!

We are calling for Club members to nominate potential guest speakers for 2024. These speakers should possess valuable knowledge, expertise, or inspiring stories that align with our club's mission and interests.
