My first experience with Rotary International was as a non-Rotarian. Way back in 1979 1 was chosen to travel to the Philippines on a young business person exchange. As I look back as a not-so-young business person, I realize that the six weeks I spent in the Philippines and my association with Rotary since then has added much to my life. In this troubled world, I am proud to be part of a worldwide organization that contributes much to special projects such as polio elimination and providing clean water to underdeveloped areas. The citizen-to-citizen diplomacy that exists because of Rotary's intemational presence is a very productive form of ambassadorship. Are you interested in being a Rotarian?
