What We're Accomplishing
Our 2011-2012 year at the Rotary Club of Orlando is going to be a great one. We're all busy, and it's so easy to lose sight of the accomplishments that we make along the way.

To help us recognize all that we do, I've created an ongoing year in review for us. I hope you will take a moment to check in from time to time and be proud of all that our club does both in our community and around the globe.

President 2011-2012
