On Monday our Rotarian of the Year gave his Rotary Minute. Like many of us older Rotarians, covering the highlights takes more than a minute…or two. That is a challenge for taking notes so I always appreciate it when our minutemen can share their notes electronically. Here then is Brady’s “Minute” in his own words. -jz
What does Rotary Mean to me?
Two things come to mind immediately — Service and International Opportunities:
I retired as Professor of History in 2008 from the Virginia Community College System where I taught in Richlands and Abingdon for 34 years and my family and I lived in Abingdon.
When I retired, I received a rocking chair, which I have never used, and we moved immediately to Durham for the same reason many retire to Durham, 3 wonderful grandsons. Then I found Sister Cities where I’m currently serving as President, and then I found Rotary.
