“Why Am I a Rotarian?

As a new transplant to Thief River Falls 14 years ago, I decided to join a social/philanthropic club in an attempt to “plug in” to the #community. Little did I know #Rotary would become a great source of #comradery for me. Some of my strongest #friendships outside the club got their start because of my membership in Rotary. When I first moved here it was explained to me that Thief River is a town large enough that when you go out, you won’t know everyone, but small enough that you will probably run into someone you do know. I think joining Rotary has made the community feel closer knit to me and makes that statement ring true. In addition, if I ever have a problem or need to seek information only “locals” would know, I know that I can turn to my network of friends that is the Rotary Club. And in turn I am happy to do so when I can be of help to others! This “service” naturally extends itself to the community at-large and I am grateful to have a larger platform – through Rotary – to help others in the community.” -Joe Hedrick, Airport Manager
