President Jim

At the start of his presidential year, Rotarian Jim Costello outlined his hopes that in our 70th year we in Leyland Rotary will be able to expand our involvement with the local community.


We engage in activities aimed at helping communities address identified needs in an endeavour to enhance the health, well-being and happiness of people and improve the environment in which we all live.
