Our special Monday lunch with the Rotary Clubs of Area 4 was wonderful – the meal was delicious, table conversations were lively, and the speaker was fantastic! Steven Solomon spoke of his experiences that Rotary has given him. From his Scout troop funded by Rotary to his Interact membership in high school and then his Ambassadorial Scholar program in South Africa, Steven has experienced the world due to The Rotary Foundation donations.  He has had the opportunity to meet and be influenced by folks such as Jane Goodall and Archbishop Desmond Tutu giving him an education greater than many of us can ever imagine. He blames all his adventures and gained knowledge on Rotarians and The Rotary Foundation. You missed an inspirational speaker who helped us understand the ripple effect of giving our Rotary Foundation donation – I feel proud to know what our donations have done for this young man.
