Meet Our Newest Members
Livonia AM Rotary is proud to introduce the two newest members of our club. Kelly Abdilla (5/3 Bank) and Cory Moore (Metro Agency Insurance). The two were inducted into Rotary today by our Rotary District Governor Paul Sincock. Cory has been a friend of our club for some time and we hoped we'd eventually sign him. Kelly researched service organizations, picked us and immediately launched herself into volunteer service within her first week of visiting our club. We consider ourselves very lucky to have Kelly and Cory as part of our Rotary family!
