I'm Young. I'm in Rotary. Here's Why.
Rotary is weird. Rotarians are old, mostly. They sing songs like "America the Beautiful" and pray and say the pledge of allegiance before meetings. They tell lame jokes. They organize highway trash cleanups, blood drives, and literacy fairs. They raise money for students to study abroad and open their homes to foreign studens studying here. They are fixated on eradicating Polio. Yes, Polio is still thing.
