In today’s newsletter you will see that we are listing the dates of when members started in Columbus Rotary.   You will see that we have fairly new members and others that have been with the club for more than 40 years.

This made me think.  How many of us look at replacing ourselves in Rotary.  Yes, we joined to serve, to get our hands dirty, and attend a multitude of lunches and meetings, but have we asked others to join as well.  Individually, we have all profited from Rotary, but have we shared that wealth?

As you grow in Rotary, it is expected that your job duties and responsibilities increase also.  In this day and age of doing more with less, we all find it difficult to attend events and functions.  This is also true with Rotary.  So have you replaced yourself? 

Do you have an up and comer in your business that would benefit through Rotary.  Perhaps it’s a client or customer.  The joining process is easy and painless.  All you have to do is contact the office like Terry Davis, Jack Graf and Bill Lane have done recently and we’ll work you through the steps. 

Think about it.  In the end you benefit from inviting someone to join Rotary, That person benefits through their membership as you have and the Club benefits from both of you.
