At a recent Rotary Club of Scottsdale meeting, new members Paula Dudley and David Pastor, received their individual “Blue Badges.”

Receipt of a “Blue Badge” is an acknowledgement, that as new members, Paula and David have completed the club’s orientation process and have graduated from “Red Badges.”

Completing Blue Badge requirements in a timely manner helps new Rotarians to get to know their fellow Rotarians more quickly while familiarizing them with club activities and Rotary’s areas of focus: Promoting Peace, Fighting Disease, Providing Clean Water, Saving Mothers and Children and Supporting Education.

Rotarians are 1.2 million neighbors, friends, and community leaders who come together to create positive, lasting change in communities and around the world. Rotarians have been making history and bringing the world closer together for over 100 years.

Since forming in 1905, Rotarians have taken on some of the world’s toughest challenges, such as polio eradication. Rotarians have helped a wide range of international and service organizations from the United Nations, World Health Organization to Easter Seals.

The Rotary Club of Scottsdale with community and business leaders as members, has gathered for 61 years to serve the youth of Scottsdale while supporting Rotary’s global efforts to promote education, health, sanitation, and peace.
