Who Are We - And What do we Do?
Rotary Club of Magnolia was formed in 2004 to serve the Magnolia Community in the tradition of Rotary International - Service Above Self.
Members of Magnolia Rotary have joined millions of Rotarians worldwide serving their community as well as participating in International Programs to promote co-operation, support and understanding among all nations. We have support programs like Sister Schools (Helping students here and in Kenya exchange goods, friendships and information) and Rotary's Polio Plus (a project to eradicate Polio worldwide).
Here in Magnolia Community we have raised the funds to purchase 13 Automatic External Defibrillators placed throughout our area. Visit www.magnoliaheartsafe.com for location of devices and information on the Magnolia Heart Safe Foundation.
