Recently an empowerment/self defense workshop was offered free of charge to interested adults in our community.  The Rotary Club of Pulaski County sponsored the workshop contracting with Renata Maiorino, retired University of Missouri professor, to conduct two sessions in the Community Room of the Waynesville Public Library.  Nearly 40 people took advantage of the opportunity.  “To my knowledge, this is a first in the Waynesville-St. Robert area," commented one attendee.  “I hope Rotary will offer it again.  The fact that it was free was very attractive."
