May is Rotary History Month!

Rotary International was founded in 1905. What began as four men meeting in local Chicago businesses has now grown to 1.2 million Rotarians belonging to over 34,000 Rotary clubs in more than 200 countries and geographical areas.

Metro Rotary will celebrate its 19th birthday next month. Since our club’s founding in 1993, we have seen many professionals come and go, but our core mission has remained true. As a result, we have been able to assist many people, both locally and on an international level. Five of our charter members remain active today! A special thank you to Win Burggraaff, John John, Ginny Northcutt, Audrey Spieler and Jim Stock. Your devotion of time and talents has played a key role in our club’s growth, and we appreciate each of you.

As a reminder, we only have two months left in this Rotary year. I encourage you to remain involved in our club’s activities, and plan ahead to be even more active in the year to come. Help make Metro Rotary History!

President Jim
