Each year, Rotary International sets lofty goals for clubs to attain within the Rotary year. They often require extra "work" and when achieved, are a sign of a healthy club. In 2018-19, the Rotary Club of East Jordan achieved a Rotary Citation with Silver Presidential Distinction.
The Rotary Citation recognizes Rotary clubs that support each of our strategic priorities by completing certain activities. Clubs have the entire Rotary year to achieve the citation’s goals. Clubs can receive the Rotary Citation with Presidential Distinction when they achieve the Rotary Citation plus one to three additional goals.
