Maybe they’ve seen a need in our community and wondered how they could help. Maybe they want to use their professional skills to help others — or even learn new skills. Maybe they’re seeking connections with other service-minded professionals in our community or abroad. 

Two Hands

Whatever their reason, joining Rotary can help them achieve these goals, and so much more. 

Community service

 “Being a Rotarian means serving your community, networking, making friends, and building international relationships.”
— Mercy Bannerman, Rotary Club of Accra-Airport, Ghana

 

 “Rotary creates the perfect venue for me to give back to the community I live in while enjoying the camaraderie of positive and active individuals.”
— Tom Brand, Rotary Club of Kenosha West, Wisconsin, USA


Networking

“Rotary is a tremendous network. Leaders in the community can connect and reach out to people in need.”
— Russel Honoré, Rotary Club of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA

 

 “Rotary provides an environment for developing strong friendships and business relationships.”
— Pete Sinsky, Rotary Club of Kenosha West, Wisconsin, USA


Leadership skills

 “Leadership is a key focus of Rotary. Through Rotary, you have the opportunity to expand your leadership skills and achieve your goals.”
— Norma Madayag-Reilly, Rotary Club of Newark, New York, USA

 

 “A week doesn't go by that I don't learn something new from the speaker at our club or just from working on projects with people. It's an opportunity to grow indefinitely.”
— Stephen Brown, Rotary Club of La Jolla Golden Triangle, California, USA


International service

 “I've become much more internationally focused, and understand that there's so much more I can do as part of a bigger whole than I could ever do on my own.”
— Toni McAndrew, Rotary Club of Mid-Valley (Dickson City), Pennsylvania, USA

 

 “If you truly want to give back to the community – and to the world at large – you join Rotary. It has an arm that reaches across all barriers. To be part of that is very powerful.”
— Aruna Koushik, Rotary Club of Windsor-Roseland, Ontario, Canada


Friendship

 “Every Rotary club in the world, no matter how big or small, has one thing in common: friendship. And it's from this base of friendship that we serve our community.”
— Kemal Attilâ, Rotary Club of Ankara-Tandogan, Turkey

 

 “I found a fellowship where every nation, every color, all of humanity can be like a family. I've got a place where I can serve my people and serve the world.”
— Ailinda Sawe, Rotary Club of Dar-es-Salaam-Mzizima, Tanzania


Family-friendly

 “We want families with children to join Rotary, so we try to be very flexible. Family commitments always take precedence.”
— Wendy Scammell, Rotary Club of St. John's Northwest, Newfoundland, Canada

 

 “For me, Rotary is a way of life – one that my husband and I have lived our whole lives.”
— Julia Gereda de Carlin, Rotary Club of Monterrico-Surco, Peru


Opportunities for young people

 “There's so much diversity in the work Rotary does. It can give you exposure to so many different areas and help you find what your interests really are.”
— Andrea Tirone, Rotaract Club of University of Toronto, Ontario, Canada

 

 “A great tool Rotary has is its educational programs. I was an exchange student (Rotary Youth Exchange) in Switzerland in high school. That’s how I got involved and what made me want to give back.”
— Jorge Aguilar, Rotaract Club of Chicago, Illinois, USA

 


 
 

 
 

Its that time of year again, recipe for those great pretzels that Susan uses: 

Spicy Pretzels

1 lb bag pretzels twist
1 cup Canola oil
1 pkg Ranch dip mix
1 to 3 tbsp crushed red pepper (I used 2 tbsp)


Put pretzels into gallon size sealable plastic and bag; set aside.  Then blend oil, ranch dip mix and desired amount of pepper.  Pour into bag with pretzels.  Seal bag and turn several times to coat pretzels.  

Turn over every 15 minutes until all liquid absorbed about 2 to 2 1/2 hours.  Pour pretzels onto wax paper or foil until dry.    NOTE:  For faster drying, place pretzels on foil lined baking sheets and put in oven at 250 for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving, a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year!
