As with many fellow club members I began my Rotary journey during my more mature years.  The kids were near grown, my career established, and I was seeking a way to give back to my community.   I eventually learned there was more to Rotary than just community service.  I learned that Rotary has an impact across the entire world.    I also learned there were words and acronyms being tossed around I’d never heard of before. It was somewhat confusing, even overwhelming.   RI, PETS,  RYLA, Interact, and yes, Rotaract.   It took me a while before working up the nerve (or maybe overcoming the embarrassment of not knowing) to ask what the heck was this thing called Rotaract?As with many fellow club members I began my Rotary journey during my more mature years.  The kids were near grown, my career established, and I was seeking a way to give back to my community.   I eventually learned there was more to Rotary than just community service.  I learned that Rotary has an impact across the entire world.    I also learned there were words and acronyms being tossed around I’d never heard of before.
