"Selecting a Corporate Membership in Twin Bridges Rotary has been a great option for us at CAPTAIN Community Human Services.We share the membership among 4 of our senior staff and therefore find it easy to keep up with the commitment to attend meetings. At Twin Bridges our staff have had many opportunities to give back to the community through Rotary service activities. And, Rotary has been a wonderful supporter of CAPTAIN’s programs. It’s a win-win. Most of all, we have enjoyed the new friendships and are proud to call ourselves Rotarians."
