• What is Community Service? 

    According to Webster's Dictionary, Community Service is: work that is done without pay to help people in a community. 

  • "Thank you so much for helping out with volunteers for our fundraiser this past Saturday.  Today we had a meeting to discuss the event and many Rotarians had nothing but positive things to say about your kids.  We couldn't have done it without them." 

    Joanna Call, North Stockton Rotary
