Are you using the correct
Rotary Logo? 
Do you know what font is preferred for all Rotary communication?
Geri Appel included the article below in our latest District Newsletter obtained from a Facebook post by Rotarian Evan Burrell. This was also a recent discussion at our board meeting,  so it serves as a good reminder to all of our club members:
As brand ambassadors, we must adhere to the Rotary brand standards in order to strengthen our recognizability and unity. Please always check and be sure that Rotary branding is used in a correct and consistent way while sharing materials on your web page, Facebook, and other platforms / communication channels. Keep in mind that even good intentions are watering down Rotary brand if not used correctly.
