MESSAGE

A Message from Laura Eier,
President of Flag City Morning Rotary

Welcome to Findlay Flag City Rotary! As president of the club, I want to thank you for coming to our website to learn more about our club. We are an energetic and growing service club focused on having a positive impact in Findlay and the world, while also having some fun along the way. We display “Service Above Self” by giving our time and granting funds to organizations making a difference. Join us at one of our meetings every Wednesday morning from 7:30am – 8:30am at 50 North (339 E Melrose Ave). Check out the rest of our website to see upcoming events and activities.

Rotary is a global network of 1.2 million neighbors, friends, leaders, and problem-solvers who see a world where people unite and take action to create lasting change – across the globe, in our communities, and in ourselves. We provide service to others, promote integrity, and advance world understanding, goodwill, and peace through our fellowship of business, professional, and community leaders.

The 2023-2024 Rotary theme is Create Hope in the World.

“You may not always have a comfortable life and you will not always be able to solve all of the world’s problems at once but don’t ever underestimate the importance you can have because history has shown us that courage can be contagious and hope can take on a life of its own.” – Michelle Obama
