Hero of the week

Frank Andracchi

Member since - 2012

1.  I have always liked teaching, educating and in short helping others.  Assisting in making their lives better and more enjoyable, either thru education, physical assistance (rebuilding projects and improvement projects), and financial assistance.

The examples are in the early days being a professional ski instructor, teaching safety classes and training mechanics to become technicians and earn a better wage.  Then teaching college for NYS University System at night as an Adjunct Professor (I taught Network Analysis - Electronics and a Power Course - Motors and Generators).  At the same time volunteering for different groups on LI and then volunteering for Special Olympics when I moved to Maryland.

2.  I truly leant about Rotary thru Bea.  I was fully accepted by all club members as a Rotary Spouse, and it was clear that there was a unique synergy about many individuals with varying backgrounds all having the same goal of helping others.  I did bell ringing, rebuilding homes, planted a community garden, and always staying to clean up after every Crab Feast, event thought I was a paying attendee in preferred dinning, and my kids and their friends stayed and clean up as well.  All this time as a Rotary Spouse.  The club did give me my first Paul Harris, as a non member, and that is a day and honor I’ll never forget!  (I could not join the club, because of my job I never was in town during the week.). Sometime when Bea couldn’t be there and volunteer I and still would volunteer to help the club.  Of course, anytime I was in town on a Thursday night I was at fellowship, if Bea could attend or not.  Once I retired, I was accepted by Special Olympics to be a Board Member, then elected as Chair after two years, and at the same time joined the Severna Park Rotary Club, mostly because I’d be in town and could attend meetings.  (Bea wanted us in two different clubs to maximize our assistance to Rotary.)

3.  Staying as a Rotarian is very easy, first for all the reasons stated above and second for a very selfish reason, I have found out that as a Rotarian you are welcomed by Rotarians all over the US and the World.  It is one of the best feelings to know you have friends worldwide, even thought you never met them before.  Club locator is GREAT.
