The Rotary Club of Mississauga-Meadowvale graciously scheduled me to speak with their group on Friday, January 10th. I liked the group so much I have decided to join.
Rotary was founded in Chicago in 1905 as the world's first volunteer service organization. Today, they are a volunteer organization of 1.2 million business and professional leaders around the world.
