1. Why did you join Rotary? 

During my first Classification Talk I shared that I joined Rotary because I needed to meet some new people. (Actually I said I need to meet some WHITE people 😇). I may have joined Rotary for the wrong reasons, although I don't believe that's necessarily true, but it is true that, having joined, I began to learn all I could. I scoured the RI website but that wasn't terribly helpful at the beginning. So, I took all three Rotary Leadership Institute (RLI) classes in a year. After that indoctrination the RI website made sense to me. I was thrilled to be part of something so consequential.

2. When did you really become a member, meaning, when did it click or what was the WOW moment?

My first Crab Feast. Before I received my educational grounding in Rotary through RLI it was the Crab Feast that secured my presence for years to come. It was there that I realized who we were as a club -- a community of people with a shared mission, a body that could put aside anything non-essential (opnions, ideologies, preferences) to work for the benefit of our larger community, and a valuable force for good in Annapolis. For me, the Crab Feast was the Four-Way Test in action.

3. Why do you stay a member of Rotary?

Rotary is the premier service organization in the world. It is incredible what we have achieved around the globe. Few NGOs or non-religious bodies can claim to have had the singular impact on human lives that Rotary International has. Who wouldn't want to be part of that? Also, the high bar of ethical and moral commitment demanded by the organization is refreshing. The name Rotary means something - something good, yes, but also something excellent.
