Kim Walden
Why I'm a Rotarian

was invited to attend a Rotary meeting. It was a great meeting and the program was very interesting. During the meeting, I was introduced to many of our community leaders and enjoyed a nice lunch as well. So many good pieces from that meeting made me want to join Rotary, but the deciding factor for me was the Four Way Test. I walked away with those words in my head and I felt inspired by them. When I was asked to join I immediately said YES! As Rotarians, we have the opportunity to do more, be more and help more. We leave a legacy of good in what we do. We make a difference in the world through our gifts to the Rotary Foundation and in our work or personal life by abiding by the Four Way Test. I am very proud to be a Rotarian.

Congratulations to Didi Hoffman on her book signing at the Bookshelf!
