FIRST FRIDAYS - ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY
What is First Friday - First Friday is a social networking lunch hosted by your Rotary club for members, their friends and guests. There is limited time to network at our normal weekly meeting; however, at First Friday we encourage you to share your business cards and invite you to give your elevator pitch to everyone who is there. (Some people ride longer elevators than others, we try to keep them brief) Please bring someone, it is a great way to introduce them to Rotary. Anyone is welcome, your associate, client, indeed anyone at all. The more the merrier.

DISTRICT ASSEMBLY - BEYOND OUR CLUB







We often hear about Rotary activities and events outside of our own club.  Columbus Rotary is just one of 59 fellow Rotary clubs in SE Ohio District 6690.  Each spring the District hoists a meeting called "District Assembly".   This is an excellent way for newer Rotarians to engage in club and district activities furthering their understanding of Rotary.
