The West End Rotary Club will hold a meet and greet event from 6-9 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 17 at Antonio's Grille, Route 209 and Weir lake Road, Brodheadsville. The event is free and open to anyone who wishes to learn more about the fellowship and service projects of Rotary in their community. The club will provide light snacks. A cash bar is available.

"Rotary helps people develop social and leadership skills," said Karin Susan-Breitlauch, club president. "It also builds community. We're inviting all of our friends and business associates to see what Rotary can do for them, their neighbors and the world."

In the last few years, West End Rotarians have purchased ice rescue suits for the Polk Township Fire Co., contributed emergency supplies for global disaster relief and donated a new dictionary to every third-grade student in the Pleasant Valley School District.

Rotary is a global service organization with more than 1.2 million members in 33,000 clubs worldwide. Rotary club members are volunteers who work locally, regionally and internationally to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace and eradicate polio under the motto Service Above Self.
