COVINGTON, Ga. – The Rotary Club of Covington welcomed five new members in July during a special meeting with Rotary District 6910 Governor David (Coop) Cooper.

The new members include Lauren Singleton, Michael Pulliam, Jennoa Graham, Irvin Clark and John Batkins.

The new members join the 64-member club, which meets every Tuesday at 12 p.m. at Covington First United Methodist Church.

Rotary brings together the kind of people who step forward to take on important issues for local communities worldwide. Rotary members hail from a range of professional backgrounds; doctors, artists, small business owners and executives all call themselves Rotarians. Rotary connects these unique perspectives, and helps leverage its members’ expertise to improve lives everywhere.

From Haiti and Greenland to Nigeria and Singapore, Rotary unites a truly diverse set of leaders from across the world. Currently, the largest number of clubs comes from the United States, India, Japan and Brazil. The fastest growing Rotary regions include Southeast Asia and Africa.

Rotarians contribute their time, energy and passion to sustainable, long-term projects in local communities across the globe. Projects focus on important issues like peace and conflict resolution, disease prevention and treatment, water and sanitation, maternal and child health, basic education and literacy and economic and community development.
