Earlier this year the Rotary Club of Greater Long Branch President-elect Gordon Heggie presented guest speaker Sylvia Allen with a token of the club’s appreciation. According to an article written by Ken Gittell and posted on the Rotary Clubs website the Rotary Club has more than 34,000 clubs and 1.2 million members worldwide.

The group believes, “that helping to change the world starts with a personal commitment to ‘Service Above Self’.” We couldn’t agree with them more. Ken says that, you’ll find their members “volunteering in communities at home and abroad to support education and job training, provide clean water, combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, and eradicate polio.”  Sylvia was honored to speak at their local event, and gracefully received their gesture of goodwill.
