Presidential Citation

District Governor, Jacque Andrew, stated when she met with our board of directors that the Rotary Club of Ankeny should be able to qualify for a Presidential Citation.  The 2013-14 Presidential Citation recognizes Rotary clubs for an array of achievements that promote our membership growth, enhance humanitarian service through our foundation, and strengthen our network through the family of Rotary.  By Qualifying for the Presidential Citation, clubs contribute to Rotary's strategic goals and multiply the impact of their good work through the collective focus of more than 34,000 Rotary clubs worldwide.

To qualify for a Presidential Citation a club must complete three required activities, along with three additional activities in each category.   The required  activities are:

  • Attract and/or retain members to achieve a minimum net gain of at least one member between July 1 and March 1
  • Participate in a local; or international service project related to at least one of Rotary's areas of focus.
  • Hold at least one fellowship or service activity that involves all club members and their families or partners with a non-Rotary organization on a service project in your community.
