Rotary International can be a great influence in any community. In my community they volunteer every year at my schools garden during planting season. We work side by side, students and the rotary club, all day long. We have 10 acres and every year they never fail to plant at least 5, in 2011 they did seven. On top of this they provide scholarships among other awesome things. I was even invited to chair a luncheon, they really care about the community and try to stay informed on ways that they can help and ensure that they are effective.
