Just arrived in Chicago for the Rotary International World Convention. I feel very excited to be here. I have been in Rotary for almost 5 years. It has been an enormously positive experience for me - one place where I can get a pulse on my community and a lot of insight into life.
As mentioned below, I am blogging the convention here.
You often read of the stodginess of Rotary and of Rotarians. Well, this is changing. A lot of young people are joining Rotary Clubs and I have found the "old guard", for the most part, very welcoming of the changes.
