Last Saturday (Oct-5-13) I had the chance to attend the District 5330 President's Elect Retreat at Thousand Pines in Crestline, CA. It was fun, informative and useful. After the Retreat I was thinking about being a Rotarian. I have been a member of three Rotary Clubs and a member for about seven years. How has Rotary changed my life? "Being a Rotarian has been a great experience to have friends with ethical values; to become more involved in helping others; and giving me a mechanism to know that I am making a difference." Leadership is ultimately about helping others to be their best. That means putting others above self. And that is the basic foundation of Rotary. As Paul Harris understood over 100 years ago when he invited some friends to dinner, when you get a lot of people working together and believing in service, anything is possible.
