What I Like About Our Rotary Club

Posted by Jim Wayman on Oct 03, 2017
It seems that many of the more interesting Rotary Club programs are those featuring our own members. This time, it featured several of our own who were talking about what is it that they like about our Rotary Club meetings. Sam Purohit asked several club members to give their own personal views. Some Rotarians have been members for quite a long time, while other a comparably shorter period.
 
Jack Atherton, who is a 60-year Rotary Club veteran, said he gets a kick out of the past occupational talks from our own members. We should bring them back.
 
Gary Ace, a member since 1972, said that Rotary has become a integral part of his life. What memories that stand out for him are the camaraderie, the singing, and getting to meet the students attending our club meetings.
 
Tim North, a 1974 Rotary Club member, cited several highlights:
  • donations going to great causes
  • the dictionary project has been one of his favorites
  • interacting with kids
  • Interact Club
  • Rotary Club acquaintances.
Richard Duncan cited the Rotary Foundation, and great causes where it invests it's funds.
 
Thanks, Sam for creating another great Rotary program! All of these ideas of past Rotary Club traditions and standouts give food for thought for ideas for the future.
