Southtowne Rotary features a unique speaker at every Thursday at 12:00pm for a lunch meeting. Speakers include community leaders, business professionals, members, non-profit organizations, entertainers, and much more. Weekly programs are 20-30 minutes in length and are informative, educational, helpful, or humorous.

January 17 l What are we doing in Uganda
Patric Miller will do a presentation on the work Southtowne is doing for the village school in Buyijja, Uganda. In the past year, Southtowne has completed a well project, solar lighting, and donated to school supplies and teaching materials. Patric will outline the importance of this work, in a region that is virtually “off the map” for most of the work being done Internationally by Rotary.
