The Rotary club of Wallington was recently presented with a MEMBERSHIP DEVELOPMENT & EXTENSION award for THE HIGHEST RETENTION RATE IN D1140 for the 2013-14 ROTARY YEAR.
The award which was signed by the Rotary International President Rotarian Ron D.

A delighted Rotarian Booth while presenting the award certificate to the club noted that “this is a great achievement coming at a time when all other Rotary clubs worldwide are battling with retention issues amongst its membership” and urged the club members not to relent in their efforts to attract new members and making them feel welcome.
