Rotary Club of Summerlin had a great social. #camaraderie

And we haven’t looked back!!! 💙💛 On May 4, 1987, by unanimous decision, the U.S. Supreme Court rules that Rotary clubs may not exclude women from membership on the basis of gender. Rotary issues a policy statement that any Rotary club in the United States can admit qualified women into membership. The Board "encourages all clubs in the U.S. to give fair and equal consideration to candidates for membership without regard to gender. The Rotary Club of Marin Sunrise, California (formerly Larkspur Landing), is chartered on 28 May. It becomes the first club after the U.S. Supreme Court ruling to have women as charter members. (Now DGE) Sylvia Whitlock, of the Rotary Club of Duarte, California, becomes the first female Rotary club president. It seems it was a great decision as years later Rotary continues to grow and flurish as an international leader in peace, health & welfare & community service! #rotary #WomenInRotary #PeopleOfAction ...
