Hero of the week

Frank Hurd

Member Since: 2012

Having been a Rotarian for 10 years in the Dalton Carpet City Rotary Club it was a natural to continue being a Rotarian when I finally stopped travel 50 weeks out the year.  The question was which of the fine clubs in the Annapolis area would be the best fit for me.   I settled on the Annapolis club as I just felt it was doing more to help the community and I wanted to be part of that commitment to excellence. 

Wow moment - An interesting question as there are more than one moment when I felt really a part of the club.   My first Black Tie and Diamond, my first Crab Feast, where I handed out who knows how many crabs (never had seen so many in my life), but probable the time I felt really connected was when I worked with Lisa Craig to rework and straighten out the financial records of the club.   I know this is really nerdy, but I could really contribute using the things I had learned in my career.

It is easy to stay with the Annapolis Rotary Club because of the unbelievable members, the events, the weekly meetings with interesting speakers, the continue contribution the club makes to the community and most importantly the new friends I have made through Rotary and have come to cherish.
