One Rotary Summit 
The Glenwood Rotary Club was well represented at the District's One Rotary Summit.(Pictured if you did not know, were Lloyd Campbell, District Membership Chair 2018, Ben Peters, Nathaniel Seabrook and Grant Herfindahl, President-Elect of the Glenwood Club.) The Summit was an opportunity to give your input to where the district should focus its efforts, learn more about the District and a chance to get to know more about the future leaders of Rotary.   It was a day of actions vs just listening to speakers. It was fun!!
