Why I am a Rotarian

One might say that Rotary discovered me in Winnipeg and I was soon compelled by “service`to others”. Through Rotary I have met many good friends and the rewarding feeling of doing something worthwhile. My happiest moments with Rotary are with Rotarians at an International Convention where one comprehends the vastness of Rotary service throughout the world. There, one changes from being a member of Rotary to becoming a Rotarian.
