Special Rotary Thanks to PBM Specialties and Nona Social
Thank you to all the amazing local companies that open their doors and volunteer services to our Rotary Club. I want to specifically thank PBM Specialties and Nona Social for helping us host our first “Rotary Rocks Social.” PBM Specialties is a commercial sign company that does extraordinary signs and custom awards. Nona Social is a local restaurant that has become the preferred place to hang out while in Lake Nona. Both have provided uncanny support to our mission and for that Rotary thanks you.
