Jack Kersh

Member since - 2002

1. Why did I join Rotary?  I was invited to join Rotary by Bill Bass, one of Rickover's top guys and one who had become my friend, and Jim Rivers, whom I met on the golf course while not playing well and not swearing. Jim also invited me to join a local Bible Group. I joined Rotary because I was retired and felt I needed to do some community service work in Annapolis. I also already knew and respected many of the members and the additional members I met were most impressive. They knew how to work together and have fun. Dick Royer and his leadership team ran things productively. smoothly and generated high spirits and high levels of cooperation. I felt that it was the best community service group in town to join and I wasted no time in doing so.

2. What did you really become a member-when did it click or provide an Ah Ha moment? The Crab Feast on the first Friday of August in 2002. I did Security for George Phelps, Served Beer, and did Garbage, Take down and clean up. I never worked so hard and had such a good time and everyone worked as hard and long as I did and had a great time. The Fellowship meeting after clean-up was amazing and I don't smoke cigars. My grandchildren have worked the Crab Feast. I was also on the first BlackTie and Diamonds Committee and was responsible for the live and silent auctions. The Fundraiser was successful and many of the committee members wanted to quit in the mid-stages. I told them that if they didn't go through with this one they would never have the drive to do another one,

3. Why do I stay a member? I still love the Crab Feast and working the set-up. serving beer in preferred dining, and clean up and take-down although I do not have the strength and staying power that I did in 2002. Rotary is my favorite organization in Annapolis, and I feel that I can still contribute to the services required, enjoy them and encourage others to contribute to Rotary's local and international services and enjoy them. I keep hoping I will finally inspire someone. When I feel that I am unable to contribute or encourage others, I will quietly and gracefully depart.
