Mr. Cavazos delivered an impactful address regarding our Rotary’s mission to continue building fellowship and goodwill in our respectful districts. Coping with the COVID – 19 pandemic has challenged all Rotarians to implement and enforce the endless opportunities to help the world heal in accordance with our true core values.
