“I’ve been a Rotary for 40-plus years, and the reason I am in the Rotary Club of Santa Monica and love Rotary is that it fits my lifestyle very well. I am a person who likes to help people who need help, and I have been doing this for many, many, many years. I think Rotary is a mountain. For example, in our community service committee, we’re helping people all around the world who are less fortunate than we are. We’re leveraging money, we’re helping people, we’ve just voted on helping people with HIV, and things of that nature. Every day, you come to Rotary, and you feel better about your work.”
