1.  Why did you join Rotary?

When I joined Rotary, I was new to Annapolis as an adult (I was familiar with the town because I graduated from the Naval Academy).  I was impressed with the quality of the men and women who were already members of the club.  I quickly appreciated that the members were the leaders and activists in the community and I concluded that I wished to be on their team of supporting our town and contributing any way I could. Clair Morris invited me to be his guest at a Rotary luncheon when I first reported to the Naval Academy in 1983.  I attended my first Rotary meeting when I was 9 years old.  My grandfather was a founding member of the Rotary Club of Downs, Kansas in 1921.  It was thrill for me to attend the luncheons with my Grand Dad. I felt very special because the other members treated me with such hospitality.

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

The first time I really appreciated the impressive nature of the Rotary Club organiztion was during the preparations and briefings for my first Rotary Crab Feast.  I knew right away that I would be extremely proud to be part of such a group of people.  Each year I have enjoyed the fellowship durng the set-up process, the Crab Feast itself, and then the clean up. Another WOW moment was after a few years I was designated to be in charge of the Rotary-Navy Night. Since I served in the Academy Dean’s Office it was easy for me to make various arrangements at the Naval Academy in preparing for the event.  I served as the Chairman of Navy Night for more than 20 years and I felt that I was making a contribution both to the Rotary Club and to the Naval Academy.  Another such moment was when I was invited to serve as the Foundation Chair for our Club, and I served happily in this position for many years.

3.  Why do you remain a member of Rotary?

I am constantly reminded of the merits of the Club, its high principles, the enthusiasm of our members, the friendships, and the fellowship with our impressive members. Early on when I first became acquainted with Rotary, I was so impressed that we, as members, could participate and contribute to the program of Polio Plus and could benefit mankind around the world.
