  3. 3. N E W H O R I Z O N S Infant Humidicribs to Lagos Several Rotary Clubs in District 9450, including RC Nedlands and RC Freshwater Bay were involved in providing funding for a Matching Grant to provide Humidicribs to the hospital in Lagos, Nigeria. The Final Report has now been provided, along with photos of the handover of the four units. " Thanks to the humanitarian efforts of the clubs involved in this matching grant, many babies lives will be saved. Photos are courtesy of: Vigil Anyanwu Ndulewe President 2008 - 09 Rotary Club of Lagos Central District 9110, Lagos Rotary Resources - PR "It doesn't matter how good you are if nobody knows you're there...." This statement from Roger Johnston, Marketing Consultant, says it all. In these days of falling service club membership, how can you attract new members to share the work - and the fun? This question is on every Rotarian's lips and is probably the most important aspect of Rotary right now - membership growth depends on marketing your club. No growth inevitably means a decline in numbers. Rotary Down Under would like to help you. Please read the pdf about PR >>. Rotary Club of Freshwater Bay, District 9450! 3
