Pete Erickson, former District Governor from Moses Lake, talked about "recruiting, keeping and engaging members" to the Prosser Rotary Club on Feb. 27.
Presently there are about 1.2 million Rotarians on a worldwide basis. Locally and in the U.S., Rotary Clubs have been having difficulty gaining and retaining members. In the past year District 5060 has lost 230 members. Locally our club has ranged from 48 to 61 with the average at 54. He then talked about looking within the club and to see what could be done to break away from certain stereotypes such as a "club composed of old gray-haired men".
