A Word from the Directors

Whether it's young people exploring the world, or fellowship with Rotarians from around the globe, or help for building communities in developing countries - as International Service directors we want to provide opportunities for all Saint Paul Rotarians to share the rich legacy of Rotary's global mission.

If you are interested in any of the fields below, feel free to contact the chairs or join a committee anytime. Or contact Henning directly to share your ideas or concerns. We look forward to hearing from you.
