Our BlacksburgRotary.org site includes information about our club, Rotary International, #EndPolioNow, and how to get involved with Rotary. We also have a members access links for emeeting makeups, Dacdb, Rotary International and Distrcit 7570. We use the Rotary Brand templates to include the Rotary Brand marketing with photos of our members. We also include an upcoming events and weekly bulletin page on the website as well as a store to purchase tickets for upcoming events, make Rotary donations, and sponsorships for our events. Our second website is designated for our Chocolate Festival to share information about the festival, links to sponsors, chocolatiers, tasting sites and program of events the day of the festival. This website also shares information about our club and Rotary International.

  • Resulting Benefits: 
    We hope that our websites are clean and easy to read, click through and find what you are looking for. We hope to provide information about Rotary International as well as our Club and District. We hope that the Chocolate Festival website will bring community members closer to having the opportunity to learn more about Rotary through our website while they are looking for information about the Chocolate Festival. We also like the ease of collecting money for the fundraising events using the website!!
