Hero of the week

Cynthia Danjczek

Member Since: 2013

   I have been in the "Rotary" family almost all of my life, as my Dad was a Rotarian. He and my Mother were very involved in his Club and also attended many RI conventions in Europe. My father in law and my husband were both presidents of their respective clubs. I was a "Rotary Ann" for over 25 years!!! My son Peter was past president of the DC Rotaracts and now a member of the DC Rotary Club. 
    When I moved to Annapolis, I was involved with many organizations and clubs. One day Liesel questioned me on why I hadn't joined Rotary. I started to wonder why I never looked to the Rotary Club here and knew Liesel really enjoyed being a member.  So I joined!  I immediately felt welcomed into the Club and got involved right away. I think we have an amazing membership and all reached out to me when I became a member.
  Our Club reaches out not only to our local needs of our own community, but also to less fortunate countries in the world. Through our International Lane, we are made aware  of the severe needs of others. We are making a difference in so many lives; locally and internationally.
  Our Club gives you options to become involved in our many projects, so there is something for everyone.  Our weekly speakers are diverse and informative on many levels and certainly open our eyes to many different avenues of life. 
  I feel we are making such a positive difference in so many lives and also we are cementing life long friendships in our Club! I am proud to be a Rotarian!
