Hero of the week

Linda Martinak

Member Since: 2008

I joined Rotary while I was working for The Mount in Frederick and my marketing director took me as a guest to one of his noon lunch meetings.  Actually I think he was just trying to assure me that his absences on Wednesday lunch times were due to Rotary meetings.  I was impressed by the many projects that were available to members and the movers and shakers who were members of this club.  As a new part of the Frederick business community, those were important to me, as we were trying to build our enrollments at this "new campus" for Mount St. Mary's.

The real click that happened for me was really when I transferred to this club, due to my change of employment, moving to AACC.  The convenience of this location was superb, but the membership was so welcoming and I really felt at home.  Instead of multiple small projects, the fact that our club emphasizes the Big Two, was really enticing.  Engagement became fun and easy here in Annapolis.

I stay with the club because the members are so much fun and understand that we can't all do everything, but there is still something available for us to do.  Since my work this year includes the weekly reminders, I have gotten to know more people than I had in the past.  That writing makes me feel I am connected to each and every one of the members on a more personal level.  I love you guys!
