(Townsend October 21) The Rotary Club of Townsend has survived since 1939 and has become the club to go to if something needs to be done in our community. Rotary is always looking for potential new members to continue the tradition. Many service organizations like Rotary are struggling to find new energetic members. Fortunately, several new young Rotary members have been recruited in Townsend.
