Commitment to community service is the mission of Rotary Clubs worldwide.
Former Mississippi district governor, Dr. Henry Holleman, told Meridian Rotarians that it is helping fund educational missions throughout the world.
"Our district sends what you call ambassador scholars to a foreign country every year to stay either in Australia, Belgium or anywhere they want to go. We pay their way," said Dr. Holleman.
One of the main projects for Rotary Clubs worldwide is to help in the fight against polio.
