Story excerpted from The District 7780 Website ...

Thanks to Dave Reid, our district’s public image chair, District 7780 has been awarded a PR grant from Rotary International with the intent of this funding to increase awareness of Rotary to drive membership. So, spread the word to fellow Rotarians, families and friends, because it’s time for a  ‘movie night’ with popcorn, candy, soda and a Rotary commercial. Yes, we’re advertising in seven theaters across our district – Newington, NH, Wells, Saco, So. Portland, Westbrook, Falmouth and Brunswick on 78 screens with 18,000 :30 second commercials.

It runs for six weeks and starts this month from August 16th thru September 23rd.

18,000 :30 second commercials of ‘When You Start With Rotary’ – an opportunity to expose a new audience, perhaps a younger audience to Rotary.
