WELCOME FRIENDS

WE-GO (Westtown-Goshen Rotary Club) Members and Guest Volunteers are dedicated to giving service and working on community facing projects together.  "One Profits Most Who Serves Best."   We often partner with other organizations in the region.   If you are looking for ways to get involved and give back to the community, WE-GO may be a good place for you to begin.   We have a great mix of members representing various vocations and interest areas.  We come together to work together - to make a difference in the lives of others.   WE-GO meets Thursday evenings at 6PM-7:30PM with a hybrid online/in person format.  Once a month, we have a community facing program, service program and fellowship/networking program.  We measure our success by what we accomplish - not the time we spend meeting.  Thus, our motto is WE-GO Works!  In person, we meet at Timothy's Restaurant, Parkway Shopping Center allowing us to network before and after the meeting.  For those who can't make the
