MARCH MADNESS - CHAMPIONSHIP
THE GAME has been set.  It could be the match up of the Century, at least as far as Columbus Rotary is concerned.  

The Climbers, coached by O'Meara & DuBro, Take on The Dream Team, coached by Robertson.  
Who has the legs?  Who has the strategy?  
 
At halftime the score was tied.  After an early lead by the Climbers, the Dream Team made a Monday surge.  
As we move into the second half it looks like the Climbers are on another offensive push!


So, who do you want to introduce to Rotary?  An associate, team mate. neighbor, family member?  We look forward to them all visiting and becoming potential members.
