"What's in it for me?"

I'm sure that you have got that question many times when you ask someone to apply to be a member of our Rotary Club. We all have different reasons that led us to become Rotarians.

For me it was the opportunity to help my community. I used to travel a lot and it was great to go to any city anywhere in the world and be able to attend Rotary meetings. I would meet with like minded community and business leaders and instantly establish long term friendships. I have stayed because of the positive impact that our club brings to our world and the great friendships that I have developed not only with people in my local club but with Rotarians I've met around the world.

Please continue to share your stories about what brought you to Rotary and we will share it with the club.

The tragic news of widespread  flooding and death in  Pakistan  through out the news is heart wrenching.  It always seems to be the struggling, poorer countries that are being hit- time and time again- with disaster after disaster.
 It is an incredible journey for this project- from recognizing malnutrition  and treating babies , then to prenatal moms and now flood relief. An amazing story.


On a recent visit to Warehouse of Hope/Not Just A Tourist in Niagara on the Lake, member Cathy was made aware of a great need for large, used suitcases to transport medical supplies to developing countries.
