From the day I was selected to be District Governor of Rotary District 6710 in the year 1995-96, life became an exciting Rotary venture. Every aspect of my life, and that of my household, changed in a dramatic way.
Now I know that the purpose of writing this is to tell the story of the first eight women Governors of Rotary International, but my own story is not mine alone. My first Rotary experiences began in 1972 when my husband, Bill, became a Rotarian. As he accepted one office after another up to District Governor in 1981-82, I was a part of that Rotary experience. Therefore, when I became a Rotarian, I brought to my club, and to Rotary, an understanding of the organization that many members seldom experience.
