Rotary learns the ins and outs of franchising

The Rotary Club of Crowley recognized one of their own Tuesday as part of Rotary International’s Women in Rotary Club month. The Crowley club’s woman’s pioneer is Alice Whiting, who became the first female Rotary member on Nov. 1, 1993. Presenting her the award were, from left, Melinda Malmay, Nancy Broadhurst, Gwen Foreman, Whiting, Angelique Credeur, President Pat Miers and President-elect Tracy Young.
