August is Membership and Extension Month, and to celebrate the Rotary Club of Sta. Rosa Centro held its Bring-a-Friend to Discover Rotary Day last August 29, 2014 at El Cielito Inn, Sta. Rosa City.
Rotary accepts members by invitation only and this event gave the chance for the centro ladies to invite their friends over and learn about Rotary. This information session will help potential members expand their understanding of Rotary.
There were seven potential members and two guests, namely: BcPres Paulo Veracruz, President of mother club RC Sta. Rosa and IPP Frederick Diaz, Asst Governor – Area 1 Group 2, who attended the event.
PP Leni Ma and PP Liza Pineda were the chairwomen for the night. VP Jackie Victoria formally opened the meeting. A short clip on the club profile was shown. Likewise, an AVP about Centro projects for RY 2013-2014 under FcPres Doray Lucero was also shown.
PP Carol Salvahan gave an overview of Rotary and a short history. PP Mary Ann Gonzales talked about the club’s service projects, opportunities for service and social activities. AG Federick Diaz also shared his experience with Rotary and how it has changed his life. Being new to the club, Michelle Baldemor said that Centro became her 2nd family and that the club have accepted her wholeheartedly.
