Puget Sound Rotary Network

The Puget Sound Rotary Network allows you to reach out to fellow Rotarians and tell them about your business and services. Or, you can use the the network to find a Rotarian whose business provides the service you are looking for. Since Rotarians live by the four way test, wouldn’t you want a fellow Rotarian refinishing your floors or providing financial advice? Please check out the link, and register your business. Or, look for the services or contractors that you need.
