Milton-Freewater Rotary Club is celebrating the 82nd anniversary of its club charter this year, membership chairman Mike Garton told fellow Rotarians at the service group's Jan. 11 meeting.

He said what makes Rotary different from other organizations is the loan of a 'classification' for each member.

The system attempts to provide a club with a broad cross-section of the community with only a few members in each classification so that when projects for the club are chosen, they represent the needs of the community as a whole, rather than a single-focus group.
