Drug Take Back Campaign in a Bottle

Take Back For the past three years, Rotary Clubs across the state have supported their local Take Back collection events – by donating secure boxes for permanent installation and by volunteering at the Take Back events. We have an opportunity to do even more.

The Rotary Club of Little Rock has created a Drug Take Back Campaign in a Bottle that any Rotary Club can use to promote the availability of the collection boxes. The kit includes professionally developed, easy-to-use materials and tactics that can be effectively customized and employed by clubs of any size to raise awareness of prescription drug abuse, the Take Back events, and how the Rotary Clubs of Arkansas are a leader in the initiative.

Why I Joined Rotary...Phil Cox

My participation in Rotary began with a simple desire to be a part of an organization that I knew was bigger than the sum of all its individual parts, in every way.  And for over thirty years of my membership, I have found that to be exactly the case.  Both here locally, throughout our country, and around the world, I am convinced that the structure Rotary employs for building friendships and goodwill is beyond duplication.  There is just no better design for accomplishing worldwide benefits than what we find in Rotary, and I am proud to play a very small role in what we do.
