I think I am going to join my local Rotary Club. I made the mistake of suggesting as much to my youngest daughter recently, who dutifully returned from an event bearing the business card of the Rotary Lady. "She’s expecting your call," she said. Oops. What have I gone and done now?

This sudden interest in becoming a Rotarian came to me through their sponsorship of my daughters’ high school Interact Club. I have been touched and impressed by the role the Rotary has played in instilling a sense of community and global involvement among young people. And, I might get to wear a funny hat. Wait — I think that’s the Shriners. Whatever. I also am realizing that I need to get out more.
