Heart Safe Plymouth:  

We have trained 4,804 people and counting!

Russ, Norm, Don and team continue to train and impact the local community. 
Membership Drive (38 Yrs as a Club:-)):  
Please consider inviting guests to visit our weekly breakfast meeting.  A primary goal of moving to breakfast meetings is to make the meeting time more convenient for Plymouth professionals who commute out of the community for work. Now that we have moved to breakfast, please spread the word.
Foundation Giving:  

Please give to Rotary International and/or Polio Plus!

Our goal this year is $365 per member, which equals one dollar a day to potentially and positively change the life of another.  Any new member giving over $500 will be recognized as a Paul Harris Fellow by Rotary International. '
Please contact Bruce Behm with any questions on how to give and where to give at 763-550-9000.
