Mary opened with a “welcome spring”.
Welcome Guests.
Why Rotary done by Darren M. Darren shared some great stories about Rotary and how it has impacted him on both a professional level and personal level. The three take aways are he was humbled by Rotary generosity at his “hazing” where he was challenged to do push ups, memorable moment number two is when Sandy W offered to help build his fence with his son and Rotary’s “pay it forward” attitude and third memorable moment is when Lori stood in her own truth and integrity and was swayed by other opinions. All moments that combined to shape him in some way. Not very memorable for the individuals involved but very impactful and memorable for the recipient.
