West Point Rotary holds annual friendship picnic

WEST POINT – The Rotary Club of West Point held its annual friendship picnic at the riverfront home of Rotarian Larry Dillon and his wife Raynae last Thursday. Friends, family, and Rotarians gathered for conversation, cold beverages, and Larry's Famous Hot Dogs served by the creator of this outstanding world renowned epicurean delight, Rotarian Larry Dillon. Made up of over 34,000 Rotary clubs around the world, Rotary International forms a global network of business professional, and community leaders who volunteer their time and talents to serve communities locally and around the world and form strong, lasting friendships in the process.

Through Club Service, Rotarians have fun, build lasting friendships, and make sure that clubs function well. Through Vocational Service, Rotarians volunteer their professional skills to serve others and promote integrity in everything they do. Through Community Service, Rotarians address local needs and work with their community to bring lasting improvements. Through International Service, Rotarians meet humanitarian needs around the globe and promote world understanding and peace. Rotarians around the word are united in a campaign for the global eradication of polio. Through New Generations Service, Rotarians work with young people to help them become the next generation of leaders, visionaries, and peacemakers.

If you hold or are retired from a professional, proprietary, executive, managerial, or community leadership position, have demonstrated a commitment to service through personal involvement, are able to meet the club's community project participation requirements, Rotary may be for you. Membership is by invitation. If you have an interest in Rotary or for more information, contact any Rotarian or Pete Henderson, Rotary Club of West Point Membership Chair – Pete@hendersoninc.com.
