Possible Future Projects

  • We are talking about helping with a fund- and awareness-raising event for the Ripley County Humane Society. This could include a pet adoption program held at Batesville’s Liberty Park.
  • In case we decide to discontinue the Sawdust Days event, we’ll be looking for another fundraising event to take its place. Discussion continues.

In the meantime, here are links for club members to acquaint themselves with starting Rotary-sponsored projects:


The History of Rotary

Vocational Service

is one of Rotary’s Avenues of Service. Vocational Service calls every Rotarian to:

  • aspire to high ethical standards in their occupation;
  • recognize the worthiness of all useful occupations;
  • contribute their vocational talents to the problems and needs of society.
