Champions of Peace 2020-21

hey Rotary friends -- did you know it's our choice!  

Which 2 names from Englewood do we want for our Champions for Peace?  
      Someone that lives, works or hangs out in Englewood
     Someone who makes the difference - helped in the pandemic? with food insecurity? veterans? social justice? education? racial justice? environment? seniors?
     There are no wrong answers and many choices, especially in Englewood. There is no age limit.

Our deadline is March 1 to send two names to Charlotte for the District  -- in the Spring there will be District wide peace pins and certificates at event honoring all the champions for all 48 clubs!

February is RI Peace and Conflict Resolution month - and we're part of the solution.
