Looking back on this year, it is astonishing to see just how much Lincoln Rotary has accomplished.  With a Club of 50 members, we have a very active membership who rise to every call for help, enthusiastically devote hundreds of hours of time and effort to Community Service, donate dollars for great causes and provide care and support for our wonderful town of Lincoln.  Here is a list of Lincoln Rotary Accomplishments for the year starting July 1, 2011 and finishing June 30, 2012.  Lincoln is without a doubt, a much better town because of Lincoln Rotary.
