When I was in high school. . .I was asked to speak at our local Rotary Club because I was actively involved in politics.
For those who are not familiar with the Rotary Club. . .it’s a service organization like the Lions, the Kiwanis, the Civitans, the Moose, Goose and got loose. Just kidding about the last two.
Most of these service organizations meet once a week for lunch…hear a speaker and interact with each other. Before social media…it was a great way to meet leaders in a local community and be involved in local projects.
My visit to the LaGrange, North Carolina Rotary Club was a wonderful experience. I was given a book which I still have today. . .somewhere in my collection.
The title was I Dare You written by William H. Danforth of the Nestle Purina fortune. It helped to stir me outside my comfort zone. . .long before I knew what a comfort zone was.
