MtaaifJIxpenditures of so varied and
;'?? wide * program, but it does act as
y clearing ground for the various
14ms which arise relative to these
various works. Many problems and
affected with public inter
est are thrashed out in the meetings
of the Club long before they are put
into tangible form. The Club makes
no claims to greatness. It is a busi
ness and professional club composed
of business and professional men. Its
aim is to serve Farmville in any way
that it can.
In view of the above the Farmville
Rotary Club looks back on the year
1933-34 as one of progress and ser
vice, not merely for itself and its re
lations with Rotary International, but
also for Farmville and the commu
nity which it was organized to serve.
Farmville is rapidly forging ahead
and awakening to the possibilities of
this new era in which we live. It is
Rotary's hope and desire to in some
small way point the way and direct
the movement in order that the town
and community of Farmville may be
a cleaner, healthier, more friendly
town in which we may all live and
1933-34 was a year of change and
adjustment. That year is past, and
with its passing the Farmville Ro
tary Club turns its eyes on the hori
zon of better times and taking its
cue from the spirit, which has per
vaded Farmville during the fall
months of 1934, boldly faces the fu
ture with an undaunted confidence in
the future of Farmville, and its ability
to serve the community through the
many means which it has at its

prosperity along with other organiza

hope that this wave of prosperity will
be enduring.
