I hope that as the Rotary year comes to an end, that you take 5 minutes to think about what your Rotary membership means to you. I think it's a valuable exercise. Feel free to add your own under comments! Here's mine:
During the past two years I have been given he unparalleled opportunity to work with Rotary Clubs across the Mid-Atlantic States to strengthen their membership efforts. It never ceases to amaze me how unselfish Rotarians are, how much they want their communities to shine, and how hard they work to give the less fortunate better opportunities in life. While Rotarians seem to join their club for networking opportunities and a perceived individual advantage, Rotarians stay in Rotary because of fellowship and service. These "Rotarians that stay" see Rotary as a pivotal force for peace in the World... a place where one person can, and often does, make a difference. It is a blessing to my life every day to be a Rotarian.Bevin Wall, Regional RI Membership Coordinator, Zone 33.
