The 5 Club Image Committee here in Saskatoon recently created a "Tribute" video.  Members were asked to do a video introducing themselves, saying why they joined Rotary and why they stay in Rotary.  Hear various reasons why Rotary is right for these Rotarians. We encourage members to forward this video to people they know in the community that could be a right fit for Rotary or vice versa, that Rotary is a right fit for them!
 
 
Two members, Joe Dierker and Larry Neely chose to write their project.  Here is why they joined Rotary and why they have stayed.
