Program: Vocational service

  • When Rotary started, members rotated meetings between members’ businesses. They intended to create a group of business owners who would do business with each other.
  • Previously, there used to be classification exclusivity in a club and members were expected to use that member for services. Wives of the businessmen were also supposed to use the businesses of other Rotarians.
  • They had “booster” clubs in other cities.
  • WWI changed things. The club realized it had a great business network and could really help out.
  • Scott reviewed the Declaration of Rotarians.
  • Gary Jensen shared information about his vocation, architecture.
  • Lucille Ramirez talked about her vocation, nonprofit development.
  • Andrew Chung explained his vocation, commercial banking.

See you this weekend!
