Red Badge Program

New Member Information - Red Badge Program
Rotary Club of Cadillac
Welcome to the Rotary Club of Cadillac

The members of our club are pleased you chose to join our club! We have found that when new members become quickly involved in Rotary activities, they become more connected to the club and with Rotary International.

When you initially join, you will be given Red Badge. Please complete the activities listed below. As soon as you have completed all seven return this sheet to the Club Secretary. At the next opportunity, you will presented a Blue Badge. You should be able to easily complete this process within 2 to 3 months of your induction.
